Not quite hoppy enough to be a rye ipa, and perhaps a little unfocused. a little bitterness and sweetness and rye spice. OK overall, but again, nothing I’d get again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rye IPA from Brooklyn, with lightly lacing, moussy, pale beige head and hazy copper colour. Attractive aroma of marmelade, pink grapefruit flesh, toasted onion, soggy rye bread, mango. Tropical fruits in the onset, mango, passion fruit, lychee, supple mouthfeel with soft carbo, bit oily, caramelly with a ’deep’ rye sourishness and spiciness but elegantly so, lovely finish of aromatic and bittering hops, citrusy, spicy yet gentle, well in balance with juicy maltiness. Lovely beer.

Tap at Ashley’s. Aroma is very fruity surprisingly. Black cherry, rye bread, apples, pears, and peaches. Tastes like cereal sweetness and fruit. Almost like a dubbel. Apples, cherries and pears mostly. Big bready finish. Medium to full body. Odd beer.

Rake. Keg. Lightly hazy amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and as a good fine crispness. Decent rye spice blends well with the toffee streaked malts. Mild dried fruits. A burst of fruity sherbet. A spicy carbonated bite to finish. Interesting, tasty and very drinkable.
