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

Very tasty. Not geting much of a rye flavor, but Iíll assume itís hidden behind the generous hop flavor. A nice ale to drink. Smells and tastes fresh. Lawnmower, bitches.

Draft. Hazy orange color. Sweet nectar on the nose (the crystal malts?). Soapy lace. Flavors are sweeter than most RyePAs, perhaps because only 20% of the malts are rye. Super-easy drinker.

Thanks FosterJim. This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy orange color with a dissipating slim fingered white foamy head. Lacing slides into the beer. The smell has an eloquent citrus to sly aromatic rye malt, slightly spicy, slightly sweet, blended well. The taste combined a sweet citrus to spicy rye to lightly sweet rye. It leaves a gentle sweet rye aftertaste with a slight dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sesionability about it. The carbonation is there, appropriate for the style and for me. Decent harshness of an IPA hits appropriately on my tongue. Overall, I say this does everything itís supposed to. Good job, Black Market, Iíd be willing to try more of your offerings.

TimE (3786) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 19, 2014
Light Amber. Nice rye spicy nose with some fruitiness. The mouth isnít spectacular, and lacks balance. Moderate bitterness with some rye slickness but lacks balance though still not balanced.

Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Modern Times pint glass From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif. Price: $1.89 Purchased: Dec. 9, 2014 Consumed: Dec. 11, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel, orange, amber, semi-clear color with four fingers of frothy, white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass to the top. Evened, layered, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Thick retention all the way down. (Sight - 4.13) Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops up front. Got floral, Centennial, Citra, rye and Cascade. Light grapefruit, lime zest, pineapple, caramel, tropical and tangerine wheat. (Smell - 4.13) Tasted earthy rye hops, caramel, metallic notes, light bitter grapefruit, lime zest, pine, Cascade hops, boozy rubbing alcohol and faint floral hops. (Taste - 3.50) Medium body. Thin texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.38) This beer was OK for a rye beer, but nothing extraordinary. I had high hopes after the look and smell, but it disappointed from there. (Overall - 3.50) 3.65 83 B

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2014
12 oz. can courtesy of a trade with paiste2002. Woot, a new brewery to try! Pours a hazy amber with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of spicy rye and resinous pine. The flavor is equally enjoyable with a nice balance of malt, spicy rye, resinous pine and a bit of citrus. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Solid.

Can. The look is a lacing decent off white head, copper orange in color, and a slight haze. Styrofoam in the smell and burp. Rye in their with some malts. Hops fruit, ok, nothing great.

12 oz can. Light Amber with a decent sized cream colored head. Aroma is of rye, pine, leaves, light styrofoam, and herbs. Taste is of malt, spicy rye, pine, bitter herbs and light florals.

jbruner (2807) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours a chill hazed golden brown from the can with dissipating off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is heavy on the rye and caramel malt with faint citrus hops behind it. Taste is more balanced between the malt and hops, but still pervasive rye, nice bittersweet finish. Not a bad beer, Iím sure itís better fresh, this has oxidized a bit, but all around solid.
