If I didn’t know any better, I would have to call this a beer a HOPPED UP QUAD!!! Dark red in color. Thick off white head. Ton of hops in this one. Hearty malt aroma. This beer IS obscene. I love It!

Hard hop and rye aroma, taste is flavor and bitter hops with a solid malt background,and that wonderful rye zing in the background. Alcohol is barely noticeable.It just seems to me that hops and rye are such a natural combination,and this is another wonderful example,a double IPA and Rye. I recommend all lovers of Red Rye to check this out

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Rating #1 Tap @ Amnesia Bar (7 4 6 4 16). A dark mahogany color with a tan head. Deep rich fruits (cherry), wood and earthy body with a malty caramel chewy base. A strong powerful aroma and flavor. Rating #2 Bottle (8 4 7 4 17). A brown ruby color with a foamy light tan head. A nice spiced rich malty citrus and hoppy aroma that foretells a big beer. Balanced well between being too bitter and too sweet. A peppery spiced dripping with hops syrupy goodness.

Pours a clear but dark brown with a light tan head. Smells hoppy with rye bread in the backdrop. Taste is of rye and hops with elements of doughy yeast.

Bottle pours a very clear deep redish copper with a large creamy light tan head. Lots of stong carmely malts and bitter hoppy notes. Flavor is about what I expected. Rich thick malt flavors and lots of bitterness. Late woody almost cardboardy aftertaste. Very thick heavy palette. Long lingering bitterness. Another 10% beer from HeBrew

Dark orange-brown color with thin head. Piney hop aroma. Flavor is a sweet maltiness with a bitterness that lingers through the finish. Not as aggressive as other DIPAs, but enjoyable throughout, and better looking than most.

A dark amber beer with a huge lazing light brown head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity and hoppy, Cascade like with notes of grass and grapefruit. The flavor is very sweet with a good caramel background and a nice hoppy topping. Nice one.
