This works really well excellent beer. Create hoppy aroma with some nice malt to balance. Flavor's like aroma. Killer body. Super drinkable. Just an outstanding brew.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark and clear coppery-brown, bordering on mahogany with a very thick and fairly persistent buff head. Strong, very hoppy, resiny aroma has a subtle citrus underpinning and a hint of hay, and will just about follow you around the room. Flavor is - HOO HA! Fiercely hoppy, yet scarcely bitter, it sets evergreen, resin and woody notes roaring across your palate like 18-wheelers. Texture is thick, firm, and quite fizzy, leaving a hoppy and citrus finish. Hit the road - but BEFORE you have this.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a perfect dark copper with nice lacing. Smells of malt and rye and tastes the same, but on steroids. Great aftertaste and overall an excellent rye beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a reddish brown with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of spicy rye, citrus, pine, light dankness, rye bread, sweet malts, and some light caramel. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some nice rye and citrus noes. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, complex beer that almost seems like a cross between a double IPA and a American Strong Ale.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is an excellent Imperial Rye IPA - from the tap at Beverage World. It pours a clear dark copper with nice foamy head. The nose is crisp and hoppy with lots of grapefruit, some melon rind, celery, pine, & spice; smooth & malty palate quickly dries with nice rye spice & hop bitterness. Delicious!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
APPEARANCE: Pours a deep amber/burgundy color, and leaves a thick tan colored head and really nice lacing on the glass, this is the most unique looking IPA I have ever seen, looks amazing!
AROMA: Loads of Spice! Citrus tropical fruits, pine, and some sweet malts. It smells pretty good, the rye spices really make the nose vibrant.
TASTE: Lots of spice up front mixed with tropical and citrus fruits, the middle is spice and pine, then it finishes with a mix of everything, spice, tropical/citrus fruits, pine, and a hint of sweet malts. This beer has a ton of spice to it, a bit too much IMO, but this beer still has a great flavor profile, easily one of the better rye IPA’s on the market still
PALATE: For an IPA this is kind of thick, but it still has a crispness to it, leaves your mouth pretty dry, I like the thicker mouthfeel to this beer, it makes you sit and appreciate the beer a little more, it gets better the more you drink it too
OVERALL: Pretty solid beer, wish there was a little less rye spice, it kind of overpowers the hops a bit, but it is still very tasty, curious to see how this beer is on tap. Definitely recommend this beer if you like rye IPA’s

This may have just become one of my favorite imperial IPAs. First it is a dark
ruby red color with a with a great floral and fruity aroma. Taste is very flavorful with fruit, floral hops, some pine and rich caramel malt. Well balanced. The rye adds spice and helps give it a dry finish.
