COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden/amber beer that showcases bold American hops with the extra flavor dimension of the use of rye malt as 20% of the malt bill. This is a shockingly balanced IPA, in the sense that we include just enough malt character to counter the otherwise intense bitterness typically found in an American IPA, making for an immensely pleasant experience for your palate.
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Columbus
Malt: Pale, Rye, Crystal

Bottle. Pours a deep orange with solid fluffy head. Nose shows spicy bread, pine and citrus, like lemon peel. Taste is upfront citrus hops leading to a spicy rye finish. Possibly lacks that big hit of rye finish I was after, but the spot nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ElGaucho (2156) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Can. Rich, caramelly aroma with hops. Smells more like a DIPA. Slightly hazy amber with beautiful lattice lacing. Initially somewhat tinny. Mouth puckeringly piney with a long finish. Not my favorite.

Zeswaft (1343) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2014
Can. Big frothy white head. Copper color. Aroma is slightly citrus hops but mostly generic beer smell. Flavor is mighty fine. Lots of citrus hop and the finish is spicy rye. Flavor is a clone of Hop Rod Rye. Nicely done.

Davhgbrew (886) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Amber color. Other than that I can’t say I taste any rye. Mostly hop bitterness up front and slight caramel malt sweetness to even it out. Finish has a spicy cinnamon or clove like flavor. Also very dry and moisture sucking that makes me not want to keep drinking.

nealblind (511) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - FEB 18, 2014
On tap at skylark. Clear amber pour head that stays. Aroma of citra hops peachy slight herbal. Tastes like peaches in syrup, brine. Sweet for an ipa but finishes with a sturdy bitterness.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear, orange-gold with a foamy white head. Decent IPA, some light pine, melon, mildly bready malts, a bit of grassy bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with faint tangy rye bread, light sticky resinous pine. Not bad.

Draft at the tipsy crow, San Diego. Orange colour, good head, lovey citrus-spruce with a hint if leather in the nose. We’ll balanced on the palate and a good pint!
