An eminently mediocre IPA. Aroma was almost non-existent and the taste was a mixture of clashing elements. I was given a four-pack by a friend. We each drank a can. I later tried another one, and will toss the last one.

BrewMstr (99) - Pleasant View, Utah, USA - NOV 15, 2014
1 pint can. Hazy cooper color, light white head. Aroma and taste of hips, rye, with notes of grass, malt, and slight caramel. Not as much rye sour impact as other versions of this style.

16 oz can. Bright amber orange with an average off-white head. Aroma is of rye, spices, light pine, grass, sesame seeds, and malt. Taste is of toast, sesame, caramel, light pine, and dried leaves.

Dichterliebe (1) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2014 does not count
Bitter, and not much else. I taste the Rye, but so what? It’s merely a trendy grain, and rather unpleasant; astringent and boring.

travita (4116) - Frisco, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Can. The look is a foamy cream colored head, clear, and golden in color. The smell is pine, rye, light, fruit, and grain sweetness. The taste is is hops, pine, fruit, and rye.

HIGHB4LL (638) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2014
16 oz. can at Denver Day of Rock. Appearance: straw yellow, clear. Aroma: pine heavy, citrus, floral, light caramel. Palate: average carbonation, medium body, very soapy and bitter finish. Taste: nice malt sweetness and mild bitterness at the end, but as it lingers the bitterness builds more and more in a not too pleasant way. Overall, aftertaste on this (4-6 seconds) is not pleasant for me. Other than that, pretty good beer.

Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Sample at the taproom. Hazy amber-gold color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short spicy hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

ajnepple (2438) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Golden amber and clear appearance with a white head and lacing. Sweet aroma with light citrus, light spices and some off-notes. Similar flavor, sweet and tangy, with an average body. Tastes off, bad batch perhaps. Where’s the rye?

fezzy (82) - California, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Not a bad beer, but fairly unremarkable in the sea of really great IPAs, and ryes increasingly, that are out there. Color and unremarkable beery orange, and very little head when poured from the 16oz. can. Nose is pleasant with mild rye spice, some sweet orange, and floral hops, but more muted than I was expecting. Tastes of all that, with some grass and malt that seems nice until it is abruptly stomped out by too much bittering hops, which is basically the death of this beer - I can see a re-tweek of the recipe fixing the problem, but right now the brew’s good qualities are overshadowed by the astringency.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Tap at the brewery: Pours orange/amber with a white head. Aroma is rye, caramel malt and a bit of light hops. Taste too is more rye than IPA in my opinion. The hops were really underdone. Not particularly bitter or anything like that. While this is perfectly drinkable, I found it underwhelming.
