4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The rye base alters this IPA in a fun way. Sits heavily rather than crispy to finish but starts with some fascinating palate of hoppiness and fruitiness. Not a "must drink" when on a menu but a must-try and well-crafted beer.
On tap at Pizzeria Serio in Chicago.

Tap at Butcher and the Boar. Bumped pint glass. Copper/amber color with healthy amount of head. Iím not getting too much along the lines of aroma. Taste is targeet subdued with mostly malty characteristics. Really easy to drink. I can taste some of the rye notes almost laced with a hint of caramel. Friends have traditionally lumped this together with Two Brothers Cane and Abel as the strongest ryes on the market and this rendition meets those expectations. Some hop resin on the middle but finishes malty clean. This redhead appreciates Redís effort.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap poured into a shaker-like glass. The aroma is a roasty caramel with grapefruit citrus, bread crust, light biscuit and graham, and a touch of pepper. The beer is a clear caramel red color with a light brown head, a light web lace, a thin ring and a thin tail of a surface. Itís highly bitter with a medium sweetness. The waxy texture has a medium full body with an active, fuzzy carbonation.The finish is toast, caramel, some citrus, and a touch of resin - the rye isnít really that prevalent. The resin sticks around in the aftertaste with some pepper traces, but itís mostly clean.

A bit too hoppy but good! But I got used to the taste as I drank it down. Beautiful color.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of sweet fruit and citrus. A dark reddish amber pour with a non- lasting tan head and minimal lacing. The taste a nice combination of hop bitterness and citrus freshness with hint of spice in the finish. Medium body and medium crisp carbonation. Overall, a bitter citrusy IPA.

From growler. Deep cherry red with off white head. Piney spicey aroma. Great rye kick that showcases the spicy hops well. One of my fav styles and this is good. With a bit of carmel and hops on the finish.

Drought. Copper red with small beige spongy head, hoppy aroma, sweetish hoppy taste with a hint of rye, medium finish, very well balanced hoppiness with slightly bitter aftertaste. Very good brew.
