Amber pour with a creamy, white head. Sparse, but sticky lacing. Nose is malty with a strong citrusy hop component. Taste is moderately bitter. Full-bodied, delicious brew with lively carbonation and a long grapefruit finish. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good big rye that has nice flavor but it is a very heavy mouth and stickiness. Not much aroma or hopiness but enjoyable for a GL. In line with much of what else they do.

Shot (178) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2014
From a bottle. Pours golden with a two-inch head. Good lacing. Aromas are bitter grapefruit, pine needles, and floral hops. Flavors are bitter citrus, pine, sweet dried apricot, and herbs. Finishes with lemon peel and sweet malt with a lingering hop bite. Smooth, creamy, somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Very nice IPA.

zizzybalubba (1503) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Triangle), Raleigh, NC (best before June 24, 2014). Deep orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops with a healthy amount of rye. The rye also is at the forefront of the taste lending plenty in the way of sweetness and nearly overshadowing the grassy and tangerine hops. Medium bodied. A good IPA but a bit sweet for my tastes.

Nice bready and hoppy flavor. Drank out of bottle barbecuing. Lots of carbonation and good hops/rye balance.

Bottle into a shaker pint. Aroma is unique simcoe smell that is hard to describe- piney and resinous citrus rind. Appearance is golden with nice white head. Taste is spicy rye that competes a bit on the palate with the spicy and piney hops.

ContemplateBeer (1581) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Aroma: Mango hits you first, but is quickly followed by a moderate rye presence that is semi-sweet. Appearance: Nice, rich copper color with a bone colored head that settles into a bubbly ring, carbonation looks spot-on. Flavor: Rye/a little grapefruit up front with the grapefruit biting a bit more than the rye; not as much mango/tropical fruit noticeable as in the nose- maybe a touch toward the finish, if any. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: A very well-made beer in the GL vein, but never went to the next level for me.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear orange amber, thick white head cover, lots of lace streaks. Taste is marvelous: caramel malt that allows pronounced citrus hops to enter early and share the stage. Both sides sashay 50-50 to a smooth lingering finish. What I imagine any good IPA ought to be. Good stuff.

brigg (521) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2014
(bottle) Hazy, light amber body, small off-white head, slow stream of rising bubbles. Aroma of hop, grain, tropical fruit, earthy malt. Medium body, sticky. Moderate bitterness and sweetness; bread, citrus, light spice. Very drinkable.

Iím liking the rye-PA trend more and more. I think the grain really works well for the style - the intense grain aromas of the rye work well to counterbalance the intense hops for style. Pours orange with good head and lacing. Smells citrusy and has a good rye malt backbone. Finishes medium bitter with some citrus sourness. Tap at Circa.
