22 oz. bottle. Deep clear copper pour and a huge, well sustained off white head leaving a fine, sticky lace hold great promise for what is to come. Hoppy aroma with notes of pine and spice doesn’t disappoint. There is also some aroma that I can’t pin down, maybe it’s the rye. I haven’t had enough rye ales to recognize it I guess. Whatever it is, it’s quite distinctive. Thick and resinous on the palate, and quite astringent. Predominately bitter, but supported by a little malty sweetness. Seems a bit unbalanced to me. Finish is lengthy and bitter. Alcohol not really a significant feature, except for the after effects. An unusual imperial IPA. Maybe it’s a bit overdone with the all of the rye malts, and lacking in some of the sweetness that barley brings to the game.

Red, darker than a typical IIPA, thick tan head. Nose full of very resiny hops. Flavor is quite muted for the style, some dusty malts and floral hops, but there’s nothing "imperial" about this one. Just not much going on.

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.

IndianaRed (2869) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2006
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
