1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap at the mad mex. Look, if you like this style, ipa laced with rye, you’ll like this beer. Just reverse my numbers. Me, not an ipa lover found this to be quite fresh in its attitude however, it terribly on style. Smell is like your favorite mates BO after sex. Looks a little darker than a pale lager, perhaps yuengy in looks. Taste is a big fresh nasty Nellie bitter rye ipa thing. Sharp bitterness fer sure. A little bit of spice in there. Finish is strong long lasting rude thang. Fer on style fer sure and again one of the fresher samples of this style, at least makes it somewhat palatable to this girlie lager lover taste bud.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice rye beer. Aroma was decent. All grassy and earthy hops with not much else. Pour was a nice burnt amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was a perfectly balanced mix of rye, strong resinous hops and malt. Nice carbonation. Good all around beer. Nice bitter hoppy finish

On tap at the Knick. Mild grassy hop notes, light ry spicy character. A bit of paper. Coppery amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with light carbonation. Starts medium sweet with fruity hop character, some peach and apricot. Light rye and grass character with some warming and alcohol sweetness in the after. Tasty.

This one poured a darker orange color with an off white head. Aroam was citrusy hops, light caramelt and big rye spice. Flavor was a great balance of rye fruitness and hop fruityness. One of the best Rye IPAs ive had for sure.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty disappointing for a Rye beer. Not much flavor and a little watery even with the higher ABV. Slight hops but not much.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark nut brown color with a trace soapy white head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dry, bitter, floral. perfumey and had a strong pine presence. The flavor was bitter and harsh pine with undertones of sour caramel, tobacco, wood and a hint of cocoa. Long rough and bitter piney finish. Moderately full bodied. Did not do much for me at all.
