COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brainchild of Jeff Sparrow and our own Director of Fermentation, this Belgian IPA is 30% rye and hopped with Amarillo and Cascade. Pairs well with pulled pork chili, bacon mac n cheese.. Anything from a pig, really.

On tap at Haymarket, after a session at the Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers. The last beer of the day that I took any notes on. Hazy yellow with a small, bright white head. Bright nectarine, light spruce and mild bubblegum nose. Moderate clove and black pepper atop moderately bitter herby hops. An interesting and refreshing mix of spice- and fruit-centric hops.

A hazed golden IPA with a thin lacing white off white head. In aroma, a superb herbal malt with curacao, herbal hops, grassy and smooth. In mouth, a smooth herbal malt with nice herbal Belgian hops, a bit of catnip, grainy notes, dry mouthfeel, orange pulp, rye notes, well done. On tap at brewpub, Nov. 11 2011.

Brewerd with Amirillo and Cascade hops, this American Belo-Style ale beer is very aromatic and tasty to the palate. Very mild carbonation, and a delectable sweet taste. Winner of a gold medal at the GABF 2011!!

Cloudy pale. Small head of fine bubbles. Pine in the nose but kind of sweet and fruity once tasted. Not bad but kind of unbalanced toward sweetness for its light body.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is very fresh, pungent, nice citric and spicy character, a touch herbal as the pungent tropical character is forefront. Flavor is tasty as well, the rye comes through nicely with the belgian yeast and spicy rye and hop character. Finishes with the belgian yeast following through with a touch of a stinky hop note. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Nice beer

Sampled @ the brewery. My wife is addicted to the game and is a fan of IPA’s...had to try it. Crystal clear rusty penny pour with a small eggshell head. Aroma and flavor show citrus, spicy pepper, and honey. Medium mouthfeel.

Pint pour at Haymarket in Chicago. This beer was fantastic, and despite the pork-intensive description given by the brewer, it went well as my easy going initial drink at the restaurant before the appetizers arrived. The flavor was calm but punctuated, simultaneous rye and hops, two of my favorite flavor components. No abv aftershock either. Very mild carbonation.

Enjoyed on tap prior to eating a meal with some good friends at the Haymarket Pub in Chicago, IL. Appearance partially cloudy gold with thin white rim. Aroma of belgian yeast, clove, definite hop presence, a bit of pepper, pretty good. Taste is decent, definitely unique. Peppery with hop bitterness, i like it but it seems like something is off with it. I don’t know what rye tastes like but I’m sure that’s what feels off about this. Happy to have tried but wouldn’t try again, still a good brew though, just not my cup of tea.

Light aroma of banana in sampler at oak park. Cloudy yellow flavor is all banana but a bit of hops. Better balance than flossmoor full day.

Draft at Haymarket. The crow and the sparrow, I presume... Anyway, pours an attractive orangey gold with a sticky head. Nose is nicely full of tangerine and citrus and some nice spicy phenolics that play nice. On taste, a very well balanced beer. Very good interplay of late hopping and yeast character that really works for me. There is a good lack of astringency that is very welcomed. My favorite Belgian IPA from Pete. Excellent.
