Can, courtesy of Keir
Cloudy light amber color with small compact head. Nice aroma, the malt has a straws accent, some cereals and toffee, and mild resiny/fruity hops. Lean mouthfeel; delicate malt flavor, with a touch of caramel and toffee, very good choice for an IPA; strong hopping; there are good hop qualities (some resins and some fruits), although it may have suffered a bit (unfortunately the can doesn’t seem to be dated).
Very pleasant one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at Bridge (St. Louis, MO). Pours a glowing gently hazed orange hue, nice frothy whitish head atop dies to a mellow film, subtle lacing and stick around. A bit of fiery copper and orange glow pervades the body. Aromas are fairly hoppy, given some fruit and citrus life. Grapefruit rind and touches of orange juice meet florals, gentle bready malt. Initial is lighter end of the fold, some nice potent hop zip up front shows florals, firm bitterness with pithy grapefruit and juice. Touches of bitter earth meet bready malts, faint biscuit and gentle rye malt. A gentle spiciness, earthy hops into the backend. Cleaner and approachable body, nice hop profile overall with a gentle kiss of fruitiness. Finish is bitter, a bit soapy and grapefruit driven. Some florals, gentle rye hang on. Nice. Pretty surprised this clocks in at 7%

Pour is a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is decently hopped with a spicy rye malt in the backround. Flavor is a decent helping of the rye with an equally nice hoppy backbone. Finish leaves a nice hop resin and rye on the tongue as this goes down.I don’t think this would win any awards against some other rye IPA’s but this one is right up there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4oz on tap at Bridge in STL during RBSG. Clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Caramel malt, spicy rye, good tingly rye character... Good earthy herbal bitter hop. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Light sweet. Solid rye IPA. A bit spicier than my favorite of the style (Hop Ryot), but this is solid well-done stuff overall.

Sampled at the W&C Beer Fest 2014. It poured a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of rye, resin, tropical fruits and floral hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with a little sourness. Very nice.
