I don’t even know where to begin with this, it truly is like nothing I’ve had and I mean that in both good and bad ways. It pours a murky dark, burt orange with red hues and mahogany overtones. Looks like it came out of a barrel. The aroma is strong and bizarre, I have a hard time coming up with proper descriptors. There is definitely a strong candied orange (bordering on Pledge), There is also a sharp rye spiciness and dark malty backbone. The taste is perhaps just a bit more subtle but just as bizarre, more candied citrus, sharp pine and rye. Big malts, oak, some heat. Good and not so good, just all over the place but also total interesting.

Deep amber with little to no head. Nose is lightly oxidized, brown sugar, light rye. Flavor is similar- a bit of soap, raisins, dates, oak and bourbon. Okay. Drinkable but not something I would necesarily want again.

I don't like rye bread. I don't trust things with swirls in general. I use the toilet only out if pure necessity.

Awesome! A RyePA in rye whisky barrels. Notes of rye, malt, boozy malty scotch, the hops are muted, but not the bitterness. Like a loaf of pumpernickel in a bottle.

Draft at Winberie’s (Princeton, NJ). Pours muddy orange with an inch of white head. Aroma is tangerine, bread dough. Lots of sweet malt flavor right up front with a bit of hop character on the finish. The rye adds a nice element and depth but the malt is really the star of the show. A big 10% DIPA that hides the alcohol very well. Not a traditional showing for this genre by any means though.

Bottle, from it forget . Strong on barrel kind of sweet, rye dancing around. Clean orangey brown color, ok head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor, thick body, viscous oily mouthfeel, bitter dry finish. Good, aroma is kind of Unappealing to me, too much barrel. Once again confirming my unlike of barrel IPA’s, or in this case IIPA’s
