Light, bright orange in color, this beer has a slight haze and an off-white head. The aroma is soft and earthy. The rye contributes to the beer’s earthiness, softening the hops nicely. Its flavor is sharp of trees and wood-like hops and a touch of earthy graininess. All around, this is a well-balanced - neither the hops, nor grains dominate, and the rye is just present enough to accessorize. Yes, it’s definitely light on rye compared to some other rye IPAs, but it adds just enough character to make the underlying IPA distinctive. Its alcohol presence pushes the boundaries of an IPA (some categorize this beer as a double IPA), but it remains tame enough to feel like a solid IPA. Well-done, sessionable, soft, and although not powerful in its hop presence, still satisfies the hop taste buds.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a medium white head. A big fruity and malty nose mostly oranges and some caramel. The flavor is a light zesty orange, huge malty sweetness, caramel, low bitterness, spicy rye. More of a barley wine almost. Really sweet and tasty.

Clear dark golden color with rich ivory foam. Spicy, skanky, pine hoppy aromas with some caramel. Medium body with average co2. Pine, floral, grainy malt, mild spice flavors---not enough hops or rye for me

Aromatics are heavy on rye malt and caramel. Some slight hop characters in it but not much. Overall the taste is what brings this out as a IPA. It starts with a lot of hop character, pine, resin, and subtly bitterness that flows into sweetness on the backend. Overall, a great beer!

An ok double IPA. I was excited about this beer because of the rye addition, but I’m not sure I can identify where it is in the beer. The double hopping may have hidden it. Josh brought this one back with him from Mississippi in 2013.

Burnished gold color with a thin off white head. Big hop resin nose. Thick taste of candied orange peel and red grapefruit with a strong, grany backbone. Syrupy mouthfeel with a strong hop resin finish and a nice richness that I associate with rye. Pretty damn bitter.

Bottle--love that I’m drinking this on the back porch! Solid amber color with nice size head that sticks around for the whole drink. Aroma has a decent amount of hops with some malt and rye. The taste is sweet caramel with the rye as a backbone. Bitter, thick finish in which the alcohol doesn’t appear until the sip is finished. Great stuff. Total Wine.

Bottle. Nice American pour ... light orange-laden amber, thin top. Big, spring blossom aroma of citrus blooms. Drinks with a nice tart smack of acidity, orange, flowers, green leaves ... quite the green tea effect. Very nice American beer ... the 9% is exceptionally well hidden! Wow. (#5039, 5/26/2013)
