Tap @ the brew pub. Pours a darker, reddish-brown, almost coppery hue, with a fair to mid-sized head.Some sweet caramel, licorice and roasted grain in the aroma and flavor, along with hints of hop bitterness. Nice smooth, sweet finish.

DenverLogan (1097) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2013
On tap at brewery last May. Pours copper apricot with medium head. Aroma of light rye. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of resinous hops, slight persimmon juice, cream of tartar, rye, some funky (perhaps) yeast notes. Overall full bodied and tasty, but also has some very slight medicinal notes.

Draft at vines in Denver. Slightly bitter with mild hops. Orange pour. Smooth. Rye is there. A little dry but drinkable and good

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 8/29/11: Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with fine white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy. Flavor is piney, resinous hops, with a mild rye finish. Flavor and aroma seem somewhat mild and subdued. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture. Not much rye going on this time, a mellow IPA.

6/11/13: Tap at Mtn Sun. Pours a slightly hazy golden copper with white head. Decent retention and some rings of lacing. Aroma is strong rye, hoppy, bitter, and indeed quite resinous. Flavor is hoppy, bitter, resinous, piney, with a mildly skunky hop finish. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and oily finish. A tasty rye beer, not my favorite of the grains for beer, but this one is well done.

Draft. Pours amber gold with white head. Aroma is earthy, pungenty grapefruit, Flavors really pungent, grungy grapefruit, slightly woody, earthy malt, sorta plasticy stale grain malt character I tend to get in their beers. Lots of simcoe in this but a pretty poor malt base leaves it flat. Sharp Dry finish. Seemingly over attenuated (again).

On tap at Vine Street Pub. Looked sort of light orange but it was dark since I was in the annex. Smells citrusy, earthy, cool. Taste is nice and hoppy, more citrus, juicy. This was not quite as good as vagabond IPA but still good enough that I ordered another one. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 07-01-2012 21:51:01

Taster at the Vine Street Pub. Pours a medium off white head, with attractive lacing, over a clear, dark amber (SRM 12) body....nose is pine, grapefruit....taste is pine, grapefruit, toffee/caramel, light sweetness with hints of floral honey, finishing lightly spicy...mouth feel medium, carbonation medium. This is a nicely balanced, reasonably complex IPA. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Sampled on site in October 2011. Pours deep brown with a goodsize head on it. Has a really hoppy finish. Enjoyed the creativity of the Rye, which is underutilized in my opinion. Well done.

Pour on tap at Vine St is hazy orange with white head, aroma brought notes of big pine, grass, some citrus and spicy rye notes, touch of caramel and biscuit in there as well. Taste is very pine and spice forward but balanced well by sweet caramel and some fruity orange and grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter. Nicely done.
