Ferris (6340) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Draft - Citrus, pine and dark caramel. Cloudy brown with a decent light brown head. Caramel, citrus, pine and Chocolaty caramel. Very different with nice sweet dark caramel and light rye spice, without too much hop profile.

On tap @ Reubenís. Pours medium caramel brown with thin lacy off-white head. Aroma is medium roasty malt with a prominent sharp rye note hat lingers through the finish. Light earthy fresh hops on the back. Taste is similar, fully malty flavor and mouthfeel, plenty of rye although less than the nose, and more floral and citrus notes from the hops. The lightly roasted dark malts really jump out on the finish. Easy drinking and unique flavor profile.

Homer321 (2376) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle. Nose is bready with some crusty notes. Not significantly hoppy in the aroma. Taste is immediately bitter and then a touch of roast. Hops seem minimal overall and the bitterness seems to clash with the bready crust grain bill. meh.

raphael (938) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Though classified as IPA has a strong Brown malt profile--roast malt, sawdust, rye and caramel.. Aromas of coffee, brown sugar and plywood. The bitterness melds well with the darker malts. Just that Iím not a big brown/porter fan.

luttonm (2775) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Draft at Reubenís brewpub in Ballard. Heavy brown IPA. Big and balanced creamy rye body. Crisping hops, slight sourness. Great.

trevor211 (1382) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Really dark pour! Significant hops on the nose, not so forward in the flavor. Residual sugars, chocolate, earthy, peppery rye. Nice bitter finish. This oneís a bit less complex than others Iíve had from them. Still quite tasty, though.

AmEricanbrew (6172) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Clear dark copper color with ivory head. Nice spicy rye bread, nutty, dusty malt, mild earthy chocolate aromas. Medium body with average carbonation. Spicy toasted rye bread malty flavors with some spicy hoppage___drying nicely bitter finish--good rye brew

fletchfighters (1177) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2013
Good Christmas tick. Bomber format Deep amber color, light brown head with some spotty lacing. Nose is toast, spice and soft chocolate. Good spiced rye nose. Not a lot of the hops come out, more about the spice. Taste is a lot of toasted rye and spice with soft notes of chocolate. The spice really shines in this with some backing pine and grapefruit peel. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Could pass for a Amber ale even more than an IPA

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate foamy tannish head, nice lacing.   Soft toasted malt nose, a little biscuity, faint citrus peel.   Very toasty on the tongue, bready, malty, a touch nutty and biscuity, with a low hop profile.   Almost seems like a nutty Amber Ale versus a Rye IPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Bready finish, a little ESB like, with lingering citrus peel and pith.   Not much of a fan of this one as its not bright enough in the IPA department.

Prufrockstar (1272) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bomber. Pours dark amber / light brown. Clear with some off white head. Aroma is surprisingly roasty and chocolate, balanced by resinous hops. Taste: moderately dry, plenty of roasty/chocolate/grains up front (first half of each sip could almost be a porter) with a big piney bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture, lasting bitter finish. Overall: a nice and pretty unique brew.
