Better tasting than a speeding bullet. krypton will be hard not to drink in a single gulp. Spicy rye malt and big citrus hop flavours make krypton the perfect refreshment in your fortress of solitude. Hop, hop and away!

Bottle courtesy of a judging pack from the Canadian Brewing Awards. Very pale straw-gold colour wiht a tight white head. The aroma is awesome - bright peppery, resiny nose. A little bit of spice and a lot of juicy hop fruitiness. Lemony citrus and a nice clean bitterness. Really lovely brew - completely quaffable.

Golden with a pale head. Aroma is citrus, rye, caramel. Light bodied, bitter on the palate with a little balancing sweetness and a slightly metallic aftertaste. Taste is bitter citrus peel.

Pours a nice golden colour with great head and retention. Excellent lacing. Smelled pine right from the start which isn’t my thing really. The taste is Bitter pine and grapefruit with rye undertones. Has a spicy after taste, interesting mixture. Worth trying again.

Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden pour with a white head. Sweet aroma with a burst of fresh citrus and tropical fruits, and a very nice subtle spiciness. Flavour is fairly bitter, lots of citrus zest and well-balanced rye spiciness. A touch too much hop bitterness in my opinion, but mostly a great IPA and one of the best rye brews I’ve tried. Nicely done.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Taste is grapefruity with a nice touch from the rye. Delicious beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

After trying some other Rye IPAs and not being a huge fan I was a bit worried about this, but as usual Phillips nails it. Spicy malty/rye bite with their signature slightly bitter citrus hops. Yum!

Bottle. Pour is a little hazy, gold, big white head, shit ton of lace. Nose is sweet caramel malt, tropical citrus hop is the main scent. Tastes sweet and awesome grapefruit, surprisingly no that bitter, spicy. Really good.

simonblaine (338) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours light straw, light head. Aroma of fruit, pine, citrus. Taste is light citrus, light hops, and is traditional IPA taste, until the rye flavour hits. Interesting, like 2 different beers in one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy golden pour with a puffy, white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, sweet malts. An underlying spicy malt palate rides through the finish along with flavours of tropical fruits and citrus. Bitter finish.
