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.

BucannonXC5 (930) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 12, 2014
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 (3531) - 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.

travita (4150) - Frisco, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2014
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.

jkwalking05 (3914) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2014
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 (2477) - 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.

Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA
Hazy light amber color with small compact head. Lean IPA, the rye adds a mild nice edge to the flavor; the hopping is quite resiny, with some bitter oranges in the end.
Clean and very nice.

paulraymeads (1) - University Place, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2014 does not count
Not bad, especially for an IPA out of a can. Seems too light for a rye. Not as much flavor as a rye out of a bottle.

As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available. Temecula is a fun word to say.

cpetrone84 (1533) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Pour is a heavily hazed copper with a red hue and a right tan head. Nose has a strong rye spice to it, malt up front, caramel and grain. Hops are citrusy with a bit of pine and slightly stale. Taste is a bit more fresh, not as spicy or malt forward. Much more balanced, citrusy and piney with a light hop resin. Finish is where the rye spice comes in with a light bitterness and mildly carbonated medium body.

highibus (736) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours light reddish to copper with white head. No real aroma weird for an ipa. Flavor was only lightly hoppy up front. A bit of malt sweetness but more takes over due to lack of hops. I really dont get much rye not much pepper at all. First beer from this brewery not impressed.
