BeerNeedy (125) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 28, 2012
12 oz bottle poured with little to no head. Deep red color which was slightly hazy and zero lacing going on. The taste is complex and yet smooth and the finish is mellow with no high alcohol burn. This ale is a definite rival to 90 minute IPA and will definitely be in the rotation going forward!

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2014
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark amber with a very thin white head. Cough drop and whiskey aroma. Taste is cherry and menthol. Finish is bitter.

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

Taverner (1076) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAR 26, 2014
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.

jdb288 (343) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2014
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.

OldGrowth (2484) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2014
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

F0BAB 2010: Nice. Clear g0ld b0dy with a challenged beige head, this had a fairly s0lid h0p bite despite the aging. Besides that, there was a light caramel/t0ffee sweetness with a splash 0f b00ze and a w00dy bitterness. 0nce m0re..Nice.
