COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cascade, Cluster and Simcoe hops marry perfectly with rye malt to create this unique and crisp Rye I.P.A. “Rocket Dog to save the day!” This is the local’s tap room favorite. Available year-round in 22oz. bottles and kegs.

A strange milky aroma - no...like some tropical fruit, like tomate de arbol. This doesn’t taste that much like an IPA to me. More like a stringy ale. Okay, but not a repeat for me, and a bit overrated in my opinion.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Nice citrusy hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Tucson) - Pours a hazy golden color with a half finger thick white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is hops and light rye. Flavor is hops, rye, esters, and light toasted malt. Finish is some what bitter, but not astringent. Medium body. A good beer.

emacgee (4309) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Pours a cloudy lemon rind yellow with two fingers of creamy off white head. Spicy citrusy nose with some herbal and bready notes. Rye comes through very nicely, not astringent at all. Citrusy and spicy flavor with some bready character and peanut hull. Dry and spicy palate with a medium body.

marcus (7323) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours murky orange with a thick off-white head and a citrus and toffee aroma. There is a nice pale malt flavor with a tasty hop profile and a bitter dry rye finish. The mutliple flavors work well together resulting in an interesting and satisfying drink.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle from State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD. Clearer than expected deep garnet supporting a medium tall rocky head with a good deal of lacing. Big spicy and slightly yeasty aroma with pine resin in the background. Spicy rye grabs you right away then the citrusy hops smack you from behind. Healthy doses of toffee, vanilla, apples and milk chocolate too. Silky mouthfeel and a wickedly dry spicy finish.

unclemattie (4352) - Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2011
22oz bottle. Golden amber color, white head. Aroma of hop florals, and musty malts, slightest white pepper. Flavor of sharp bitter hops, some cardboard box. Finishes with a pine and citrus hop character and a bite of pepper tingle on the tongue. Very thin, light bodied.

glennmastrange (2413) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of light bread and roasted, pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with notes of wood, pepper, and faint date. Head is small, wispy, white with fair lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear light amber. Flavor starts lightly acidic and moderately bitter, then finishes the same. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. Though the flavor is missing any sweetness, it’s tasty and the aroma is excellent.

obguthr (4451) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Aroma is heavy on butterscotch, with hints of lemon. Clear amber, medium yellow head. Flavor is more butterscotch, but to a lesser extent. Hay also detected. Finishes with floral grassy hops, pleasant amount of bitterness. Even with the diacetyl, this is a better beer than some I’ve had.

TheBeerGod (5506) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2011
Bottle. Amber bodied with a medium, foamy white head. Soft spicy rye atop citrus fruit, grapefruit juice and subtle pine. Taste is big citrus notes, pine, herbal hops, spicy hops, rye notes, sweet malt and a hint of caramel. Body is medium with a soft, dense carbonation. Lingering resinous and bitter hoppiness. Ends with more spicy hops, rye, citrus fruit, grapefruit juice, mild pine, herbal hops and sweet malt.
