COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest addition to our year-round lineup. For you hop heads out there, you have to try this! This American style IPA made with rye grain tops the charts at over 85 IBU (that’s a lot of bitter!). It’s starts with floral hop notes a big malty body hinting at the underlying rye grain and finishes with a nice clean bitterness.

Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is of pine and grains (sort of bread-y). Flavor is good: pine, citrus, hops, malt, bread, and coffee. However, didn’t get so much rye. Good overall, worth a try!

Very easy IPA to drink. Easier than a lot of Pale Ales. Drinking it out of the bottle poured into a glass. Very light and refreshing. It is something you could drink all day.

On draft. Everything here is muted and indistinct, so much so that I suspect a tap line issue or something. Basically liquid cardboard.

cmonster (997) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Pours orange with a short head. Good retention, solid lace. Floral, orange citrus and rye malt aroma. Mild sweet attack followed by substantial bitterness. Light medium body and a long, dry, bitter finish. Well made.

22oz bottle picked up at Bevmo
Pours clear dark golden with a small off-white head, light lacing. Aroma of rye, caramel and citrus. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, rye spices, grainy with a bitter pine resin finish.
Decent, not balanced. I wouldn’t order another one.

Pours a nice golden color with a large 3 finger white head. Aroma of rye citrus and a nice floral note. Flavor matches aroma with addition of some nice malt sweetness. High carbonation.

I brought this to the Inaugural "Imminent Liquidation Bottle Share" Event. Bottle poured into a taster glass.

A - Pours hazy orange with a nice cap of one and a half finger tall head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving light lacing down the glass.

S - Plenty of rye, bready malt, grassy citric hops, and some dulled citric fruit. Pretty good, a bit faded tho.

T - Very similar to the nose. Big dose of chewy malt, rye, and dulled citric hops. Finish is a mix of chewy grains and light hop bitterness. Not too bad, just nothing mind blowing.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Overall chewy feel with most of it lingering throughout the finish.

D - Decent stuff. I enjoy rye beers, even if this one is listed as an IPA, for what they are but I am just not a fan of the chewy feel that accompanies them. Overall this was pretty good but it really wasn’t anything mind blowing.

BucannonXC5 (1021) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Modern Times pint glass From: Hanson’s Market in San Clemente, Calif. Price: $4.29 Purchased: July 7, 2014 Consumed: July 10, 2014 Misc.: Tons of foam poured out of the beer after I opened it Poured a honey, orange, hazy color with six fingers of frothy, off-white head. Above average foamy layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Good-to-great retention on the top all the way down. Smelled earthy rye hops, wet Cascade hops, cantaloupe, sweetened iced tea, green peas, light asparagus, broccoli, corn chips and some caramel notes. Tasted a tad better than the smell, but still not that great. Got those earthy rye hops again to lead. Also buttery notes, cantaloupe, lemon grass, honey, sweetened iced tea, citrus hops, caramel, cough drops, lemon and some vegetable notes. Felt like a kind of cheap taste, but grew on me as it went down. Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish. Could hardly taste the alcohol. This rye IPA really grew on me. Not too bad and a great value for the price ($4.29).
