COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer brings together two of our favorite ingredients: Hops and Rye - serious hops up front provide a pungent, floral, and citrus character. We use Centennial, Columbus, and Cascades in this hop lovers dream. The rye provides a slightly spicy flavor and a full mouth-feel. Divided Sky pours straw in color with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, and pine. Drink fresh!

Draft at the brewery during RBSG. From notes. Rye dominates but there are great notes of pine and citrus.

Very tasty rye ipa. I can totally taste some rye in there. Smells pleasant, fresh, hoppy. Taste is delicious floral hops. Well balanced and goes down like a champ. Dankness of hops.

Pours a hazy, yellow color with a low, off white head, low/modest carbonation. Strong fresh hops nose (fresh pellets), mild pine with some citrus, low grassy and lemon flavors coming in later. Some orange citrus comes first with a low/mild pine and a nice light grainy presence at the end. Light rye spice come in late and works nicely with the brew. Body is weak and comes off watery from the strong hops presence. Fizz is slightly sharp with some light alcohol bite. Overall a good flavor, good nose, body is very weak. Good as a whole and the price point is perfect.

Bottle from Diebergs. Not sure what "Divided Sky" means. Maybe it refers to the terrible weather in StL . Smells sickly sweet. Not like an IPA. Clear and copper colored. Tastes really good. Very sweet, but not like iced tea. It’s nice and watery, allowing chugging. This is a fun beer. Reminds me of a slightly watery biere de garde from Carrefour.

On draft. Pretty much everything you want in a rye IPA: Citrusy hops, spicy rye that brings out some sweet, chewy-ness in the hops. Finishes clean as can be. Real winner.

Pours a nice light golden with a nice thin lacing white head. Subtle grapefruit aroma. Rye comes across early in the taste. Great finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of rye bread, taste is piney, resiny, citrus, low alcohol. A decent beer.

Rye IPA is one of my favorite styles. I love the taste and the feel you get with these beers. This one is good but not my favorite. It is a good quality beer, but the Hop Rod Rye by Bear Republic is my standard for this style and Divided Sky does not live up to that level of sweet rye taste, creamy feel and hops of a good IPA.

Bomber from strykezone. Thanks! Pours a clear light amber with a large white head, kind of puffy and consisting of large bubbles. Aromas of spicy rye and piney hops. Taste is muddled hops mixed with peanut butter (not infected, just a product of the malt/hop combination I believe). Very nutty. Slightly spicy but ultimately doughy and with that weird peanut aftertaste. Spanish peanuts I believe with the red skins on. Interesting and different. I wonder if this is intentional or just what happened when they threw these ingredients together. Not getting any tangerine or grapefruit as they stated in the description, but it is full of pine and peanuts. Finishes on a lingering peanut note. Interesting.
