jeff789 (1407) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a hazy golden with a moderate white head... Aroma has big notes of mango, some light earthiness but mostly fruit... The rye/earthy character comes out in the flavor much more than the aroma... Fruit flavors are subtle come out in the finish... Medium body easy drinking...

ReggieDunlap (3054) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours gold with a medium creamy white head...great lacing and retention. Aroma has great tangerine and orange notes with hints of grassy spice. Flavor follows suit and adds a nice layer of earthy rye spice...solid bitterness...touch of grapefruit rind. Mouthfeel is light / medium and lively with a dry rindy grapefruity/rye spice finish. Beautifully done.

crajun (952) - , Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2013
mini growler? from summer santa; not a huge fan of rye ipa; so take review for what it is worth... taste was of hops like an ipa but had a smoother/better finish than may ipa’s. just not an enjoyable drink to me.

Beerathon (1146) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2013
This name is an oxymoron because this beer certainly does not suck. Nice hoppy and spicy character to it. Tingly mouth feel. Good stuff.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Growler. Another great beer exclaiming how much it sucks. I think I may have a "thing" for rye IPAs, but this is incredibly drinkable and balanced. Didn't pick up any off flavors from the growler like the other beer I picked up either.

orangesol (692) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2013 Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden.
A - Pours clear pale yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving sticky webs of lace down most of the glass.
S - Smells of grassy hops, dash of tropical fruit, pine needles, dulled spicy rye and a tiny bit of booze once it warms up. The rye plays second fiddle to the hops, which is fine by me.
T - Starts off with plenty of hop bitterness, both tropical and grassy, slowly giving way to hints of the backing spicy rye and a touch of booze. Finish is kinda bready with some hop bitterness mixed in, lingering on the palate long after the finish. A bit muted when fresh from the taps, gets better as it warms up in the glass.
M - Smooth, bready feel with plenty of hop bitterness. This is where the rye really comes through, providing a solid backing for all the hops to play off of.
O - It fits the description quite well. The hops are strong like a typical IPA yet not overpowering thanks to the rye core. A very nice hybrid beer with plenty of flavor that is easy to drink, give it a shot if you get a chance.
