Orange aroma but no rye. Strong ipa flavor well balanced with rye flavor. Rye isn’t overwhelming. Thick texture. Well done.

Not a big fan of ipa’s but I liked this one. Some orange in aroma and hops. Nice cloudy orange pour with frothy white head some citrus and pine in taste. Like most ipa’s. Too much bitterness at end but still good

The star of this brew is not the potent hops but the nutty rye malt. High a/c does not overpower this beer with bitterness. Just enough hop bite to match the smooth rye.

On tap at 28 Springs. Thanks Casey for this. Pours an amber brown. Very hoppy a bit too much for a beer as malty as this. Rye comes through nicely. A nice beer.

This was a very nice surprise indeed. I had never heard of this beer or brewery but it showed up at my local growler shop. Pours a light amber with a few fingers of head. Lots of nice bitterness. I would deff. Try this one again!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber color with a small head. Aroma is floral, piney, unique hops smell. Taste is bitter, lots of pine, almost has a perfume type taste. Not sure why. At first I liked it, but as it warmed up too much aroma and bitterness comes out. Not balanced.

Overall, a really great Rye presence on nose and taste but the hoppiness gets real thin on the taste.

Pours a clear copper-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes gradually. Rings of lacing. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and malt notes. Medium to full body with flavors of piney hops, grapefruit, pear and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering resiny hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma - slight hop smell. Little pine.
Mouthfeel - smooth. Just about right. Lingering butter aftertaste.
Color - orange and pretty clear. Slight haze.
Taste - clearly rye but it's missing something. I think that wooky ack is better but that's because the hops and malt mixes well. This is just rye.
Overall - just okay. Better than others but falls short on the rye aspect. Probably wouldn't buy again because it's nothing special. But would drink if it's all there is.
