I had this on-tap at the 1850 Landmark Inn in Milwaukee. I had sampled this beer (more than once, actually) at the GABF, and it was the best rye beer I had there. However, I still prefer Founder’s Red Rye, although this beer is very good. It was served in a tulip glass and was a reddish brown color with two fingers of white head. Maybe it was the glass, but this beer had almost a cabernet wine sort of color to it, which was appealing. The smell hoppy, without a lot of maltiness that you might expect from a beer made with rye. But the rye was evident in the taste, but not to the extent that is in Red’s Rye. I felt that more rye taste may have made this beer taste a bit more balanced. The hop bitterness was good, and pretty untamed due to what I perceived as a lack of malt balance. Mouthfeel was good...not too sticky but also not watery. Drinkability was also decent. This beer has a high enough ABV that you’re well-advised to not go slugging down 16 oz at a time, but I could have multiple 8-10 oz servings of this beer. All in all, I’d recommend it.

Cream colored head on a dark reddish brown body. Aroma is lightly citrusy hops but not as much rye as I was hoping for. Flavor is a little better balanced. Tastes like some strange mixture of a rye stout and a IIPA... starts out like a dry rye stout and finishes incredibly hoppy. Biggest flaw is the huge alcohol presence in the finish, but interesting nonetheless.

Bu au YeHa! 06. Ambré claire, peu de collet. Arome d’houblon très sucré, comme du scotch caramelisé. Goût fort de scotch, peu houblonneux.

Bomber. Pour is amber with a big, foamy head that lasted a long time. Hoppy aroma. Taste is hop and heavy malt. Finish almost has a scotch ale feel to it (not sure if thats the rye or not), pretty complex. I would rate this beer higher, but the booziness was overpowering for me, way to much alcohol presence in the finish.

22 oz bottle. Cloudy amber color with full foamy head. Hoppy aroma with lite malt aroma. taste of malt and hops with bitter and alcohol after taste. Very good and different IIPA.

Was very pleasantly surprised by this one. 22oz bottle, which I’ve had in the cellar for 4-5 months. Pours a lovely copper-to-brown with a nice full head. The body and the complex palate were both quite well-balanced, unlike some offerings I’ve had from this brewer. A nice integration of malts (especially the rye, which gives it a nice piquant flavor) and the intense hops. Sorry that I didn’t pick up more of this fine brew.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Redish amber color. Smell of hops, malt, grapfruit, rye, orange peal and slight alcohol. Tastes the same but with more rye taste. Throw in some more hops too! Nice orange zest bitterness at the end. Alcohol is hidden very well.

cheers dad for the brew- bottle ample head pale yellow in color, pours dark golden red. smells sweet, toffee, citrus, rye, and pine. taste matches the smell sweet, and bitter, with an odd mixture of the two for a finish. good stuff.

Another "hop-head" marketing ploy! IPA is an British beer style but there are NO British hops using in the brewing of this beer. There is also no recognized beer style known as Double IPA. Hops are the spice of beer and like all spices must be used carefully. This beer uses 6 different American hops that do not necessarily work well together. They use 225# of hops for a 100 bbl brew forgetting that "more" is not always better. It is hoppy but the bitterness is very harsh. At $4.49 a bottle it was worth trying once but is not worth repeating.

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2006
Very dark red with cream-colored head. Smell is of alcohol, pine, hops, and caramel. Somewhat syrupy in the mouth. Mild hop and citrus tartness with sweet malt and coffee flavor. Overall the taste was quite complex. The finish is of alcohol and tingles as a mix of caramel and bitterness lingers on the tingling tongue. $7.00 for a bottle was a worthwhile purchase.
