Good use of the spicy rye flavor with a nice hop finish. Above average pale ale overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wish I’d kept a bottle of the old recipe to compare head-to-head. Lots of spicy rye in the aroma and taste. A bit more hoppy and bold than I remember.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from sampler 6 pack. Straight from the bottle. Aroma of sweetness from the hop and a bit of the bitterness. Initial notes are earthy notes of the rye intertwined with hop bitterness then lingers into bitterness then ends in sweet profile from the hop. Beautiful rye IPA. I think this recipe is better than the rye pale ale.

This is the updated IPA.... Deep copper poor, nice head and excellent lacing. Some earthy spiciness, sweet caramel on the nose. Not much hops. Taste is sweet caramel and slight spiciness. Not a hophead’s IPA, that’s for sure.

...and Coors has not sued yet?! Big head on amber. Hop aroma and ... maybe .... rye. Bigger body and flavor than just IPA. Rye gives it a little extra oomph. Strong hops, rye character and good body! YUM.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: has a small beige head that dissipates quickly, beer is a very hazy amber color"
Aroma: very slight malt sweetness, pretty bland and very subtle
Taste: slight malt sweetness, has a bitterness that kicks in after that, alcohol
Palate: lively carbonation, bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel
Overall: nothing stands out about this beer, it’s bitter, alcohol seems to be too prominent

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle a slightly hazy amber with a small head. Aroma of barley. Crisp and full on the palette with hints of dough and biscuit. The end is fairly bitter and slightly dry. Excellent! My thanks to a good friend who brought this bottle directly from Texas to Europe for me to taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A definite aroma of rye. Nice malty base that is complemented with a bittering from both the hops and rye.
