Definitely light, spicy rich rye flavor to it... Noticeable belgian yeast taste... Pretty good beer... Light in body, not bad, fairly consistent with the Black IPA style...

Dark brown, slick coffee from the malts and very floral hops. In the mouth it is big and smoky with plenty of fresh hop flavor. This is excellent drinking.

On tap at Urge in RB/Poway on April 28, 2011. They had 8 different brews from Maui that day. Listed as Cascadian Rye IPA. Roasty and sharp, but too much smoke in the nose and palate for my liking.
