Bottle from Henderson Wines. Hazy amber body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Thick off-white head. No visible carbonation. Excellent lacing. Gorgeous tropical fruit aroma with caramel and pine hints. Flavour of caramel, pepper, orange and mango. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Hoppy with depth. An incredible beer.

Good looking brew but not too much more for me to brag about. Rye really overwhelms this one.

You can smell a little bit hop and herbs. Taste is herbs, floral. Then comes a little bit sweet before the bitterness appears. Well balanced.

On tap. Wow! I’m a huge fan of rye ales, and this one did not let my down. Citric floral hop notes and a perfect sweetness from the rye makes this a perfectly balanced IPA. One of the best beers I have ever tasted.

Draft at Yardhouse in downtown Seattle. Excellent brew. The Rye and floral hops are well balanced and delicious

Wow. I can’t say enough about this yummy Rye IPA. The head didn’t stick around for very long, but what a nice aroma coming out of the bottle and then the glass. Spicy and hoppy with an added touch of toasty caramel? Just a perfect balance of flavors, just enough malt to take the edge off, without taking the edge AWAY. Nice. A heavy bitterness with a nice mouth-feel, not sticky, and just right in bitter without being dry.
I only wish this were available in my town, because it would be in my cooler all the time.

Nice beer, more intense than I was expecting. Lots of bitterness, toasty malts, plenty of hops, slightly burnt caramel, some floral hop flavours. Nice but not much complexity.
