Pours dark reddish ruby brown with green-tinted off-white head. A malty, but still fruity crisp bite, with boozy bitter finish. A lot of malt, as expected, and the alcohol presence is obvious. For some reason, this reminds me of a stronger version of Three Creeks Hoodoo Voodoo IPA both in appearance and flavor profile. Decent, but it’s a big brew for more than one or two.

Bottle from beer club. Pours a dark mahogany with a rich thick tan head. Citrus and pine aroma, same to taste along with some sweetness, maybe molasses. I'm not a hop head, tried to find the IBU content for reference the only thing I could find said 96. Actually enjoyed it more at room temperature, or maybe it was the 10% ABV working on me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to snifter. Aroma is vinous notes, fruity, whiskey, pine, citrus. Flavor was unexpectedly tart with whiskey notes and a decent hop bite for an older hoppy beer. It reminded me a lot of the collage 1 collab between hotd and deschutes.

Picked up a growler of this. Pours like a red ale with very little head. Very potent rye, dried fruit aroma. Very rich, a bit boozy at first but balance gets better. Flavours mostly rye and caramel with hops on background. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is heavy with rye malt, citrus hops, pine hops, biscuit, and earthy notes. Taste is bitter, citrus, rye, vanilla, and bubblegum. Palate is medium bodied, fizzy, and has a pleasantly malty bitter finish. Great RyePA, and a great beer in general. Highly recommended for all IPA lovers.

Pours a dark but clear amber with thick light brown head. Has a strong caramel, sweet malt, and dark alcohol aroma. Taste is strong with caramel, sweet malts, dark alcohol, and hops. A sour aftertaste from the dark and rich mix of flavors.

Near clear reddish brown. Aroma and taste are sweet citrus, caramel and rye. A little overly sweet for me.

Sorry for not saying something on this sooner: This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a slightly hazy bronzed orange to a reddish/brown color with a slim white film of a head that dissipates within seconds. The smell started off with a nice sweet citrus aspect to it and then carried a fairly decent spicy rye note into the rest of the aroma. The taste was fairly sweet citrusy leading into a semi-nice spicy rye note. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice rolling sweet to spicy connotation about it. Overall, good DIPA with a nice rye note running about it. Definitely worthy of having again.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear dark copper with an off white head. Aroma of whiskey. Flavors of caramel, butterscotch and some bitter pine resin. Smooth and mellow. Bitter finish.

Very hazy dark amber beer, decent cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, fine carbonation. Creamy bourbon soaked malt. Alcohol spice. Touch of bitter wood. Nice smooth vanilla oak. Mild hop spice and a little marmalade. Finishes semi dry with the bourbon turning a little bitter. Quite bourbon led but nice. As per other raters, this really seems a barleywine and not a DIPA.
