On cask at Friday the Firkenteenth at the Grey Lodge Pub. Translucent amber, orange with a lacing white head. Citrus aroma, pine, slightly vegetal. Flavor is strong with lemons, grapefruits. Bitter finish. Not enough sweetness to go with all the hops.

pours a nice reddish brown color that is slightly hazy...thin head (maybe since its from yesterdays brew fest and pressure is low in the keg). slightly sweet aroma has some caramel and spicy hops...also a touch of citrus. flavor has definite caramel malt flavor with a very spicy dry hoppiness. rye is noticeable in the dry finish. mouthfeel is a tad watery and the finish is lingering and spicy. overall pretty good...id try it again as it might be better if it wasnt from a day old keg.

Sampled at GABF. Through the haze, i remember this one pretty well. Nice hop aroma with the spicy rye twist. Flavor is hoppy, spicey, well balanced. Iíd love to have a few of these.

Dock Streetís Rye IPA is definitely a unique and interesting beer. As the descriptions hint at, the rye certainly adds a flavorful and spicy note. The beer pours a amber color with a big off-white head that leaves plenty of cascading lacing around the glass. The nose is full of hops, pine, earth, grass, lemon peel and a hint of rye. The flavors are very well-balanced, with notes of hops, rye, bread, a hint of caramel and earth. The finish is quite dry and a bit spicy. This beer matched perfectly with the wings I was also enjoying. A very good IPA.

On tap at Phili airport. Cloudy amber with creamy beige head. Aroma is fresh citrus hops, big resiny pine, simulated dry caramel, ahhh hops. Flavor is spicey, resiny pine, sweet caramel and toast, drying finish nice. Creamy and medium to full body with active carbonation. So tasty, just what I needed for the first beer back from Ireland.

Thanks to Rciesla for sharing, bottle. IPA was not too harsh, although had some nice flavor. I would not agree with the description that it is an aggressively hopped brew.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown body with a thin off white head. Very dry and grainy with nice rye character. Pine and light citrus with a light spiciness. Earthy and very dry finish. Decent.

Growler at DLD. Poured light amber with a nice cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel malts with rye, floral, and whiskey malt accents.. slightly toasted. The flavor found caramel malt with heavy pine and floral bitterness around.. rye and black pepper hit on the back.. solid, but not great. Kind of syrupy on the palate with lots of spices and bitterness on the back.. only OK flow to it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Marathon Grill. Pale golden beer. Aroma is of lovely crackery malts and a soft earthy/spicy hop nose. Sort of a noble/spicy smelling with loads and loads of hop flavour. Itís hopped quite assertively. Malts are a little bit breadier than is typical. Lingering floral/spicy hops and a grainy hoppiness. Lovely pint really.
