COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gobs of Riverbend Malt House’s rye, paired with heaps of Simcoe, Galaxy, Cascade, and Mosaic hops, make for one great RYE IPA. Expect some nice spicy notes and aromas to take flight.

b3shine (7662) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2014
Draft to pint. Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent light copperish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of hops and rye spice with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

aracauna (3402) - Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Fairly standard pale ale with a bit of rye. Not a bad beer, but not an exciting beer.

tightslice (752) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild pine, some peppered earth. Taste is a pretty straight-forward IPA. Mild flavors with some wet murky mossy notes.

rollinsr (532) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - APR 20, 2016
Pours clear amber with frothy white head. Aroma carries effervescent bitter grapefruit citrus with hints of sappy spruce. Flavor sweet and rounded with a quick bitter edge. The carbonation cuts the palate short but leaves a small amount of citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a chalice. Nice caramel appearance with a hint of redness. Minimal head. Aroma is hard to identify but has some hay and earthy scent, but definitely there is a hint of BO in there. And now for the taste. This beer is absolutely astringent, bordering on acrid. There are no significant flavors to offset this IPAs bitter character. It takes a special blend of aromas and flavors to make a good IPA, and in my opinion NB fell flat on this one as they do with most of their IPA efforts.

Bottle. Clear amber pour with an off white head. Citrusy, moderate bitterness, grapefruit, rye, and a bit watery. Decent IPA.

GenDV138 (5083) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2016
12 oz bottle leftover from my work’s chili cook-off. Poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Best by May 22, 2016. Clear golden amber with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, rye, light floral. Tastes of grapefruit citrus, floral notes, light rye. Medium body with a dry finish.

Popoff91 (48) - Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2016
12-ounce bottles, poured into a large mug. Somewhat typical of an IPA from a really good brewery. Still not my style, too bitter.

LinusStick (3136) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2016
A solid rye IPA. Aroma was good. The rye and malt mixed well with the earthy hop smells. Pour was a nice medium gold with light amber hues and a thin off white film for a head. Taste was good. Nice and bitter with the rye bringing out some good spiciness. Finish had a hint of rye piggybacking on the strong earthy and bitter hop backbone. Nice carbonation

scotchzombie (511) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Pours clear Amber brown with not much of a head. Leaves a rim with some lacing. Aroma is mild. Some rye grain and piney hops. Maybe a whiff of citrus. Taste is a rye malt bomb. Rye grain upfront with a steep drop off of bitterness out back. Dry mouthfeel. Not great - seems a rush job.
