From the 12oz bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a thick off white head. Pepper, spice and citrus hops all coming through in the aroma. Well balanced. Slightly dry body with lots of spicy malt and citrus/pine hop combo. A real stand out rye ipa.

On tap at Dutch’s, served in a pint glass. Perfectly clear light brown color, nice creamy off-white head leaving great lace. Dry, with a soft-smooth but lighter carbonation. Light body, easy to drink. Awesome - very sharp rye bread aroma. Some spice is in this that has got to further accentuate that rye, it’s very distinctly rye bread. Light bitter and spice taste. Very good and satisfying.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium amber with a nice tan head. Aroma lightly of caramel accent malts and citrus hops. Flavor is a match - maltier than I expected, though balanced, with a hint of creaminess likely from the rye, and a slightly muted though enjoyable citric, pine, and earth hop finish. Nice. Had this in a beer/food pairing, would like to try solo at some point as well.
