12oz bottle. Pours a bright melon orange with a thin layer of white frothy cream. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is beautiful resiny west coast hops. Flavors are well blended - grassy rye flavors mix with the bright hop notes. I do enjoy rye IPAs and this one highlight the exact reasons why. They were made to go together. Very nice.

Bottle. Good citrusy hop nose. Light, clear orange/brown color. Very hop forward initial / balances in mid palate (maybe just a bit too sweet), and then some good pepper emerges / hop hits in final, with a slight burn in aftertaste. Easily the best beer I’ve had from Sweetwater

On draft at Tampa Brewing Co. Decided to go with something light and easy to drink, I was more thirsty then anything. Light floral aroma with a little bit of citrus. Nothing really stood out but it wasn’t terrible.

This is an excellent ipa. Smells nice and fruity and goes down really smooth. Has a real nice amount of hops and is not too bitter. Will drink many of these

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Rerate had to bump up .1. Its just amazing. Hope they dont drop the gravity.
2/13. This is a top notch low gravity IPA. This really is what a good IPA is about. Spicy is greatness with a balance to sweetness and good mouth feel. An excellent IPA is the best way to descripe! Great. Aroma has a sweet hit. I’d love to see a double Lowryeder.

I think this is a pretty darn good IPA. It has the characteristic strong hop bitterness, but the slight rye spice is very much welcomed. Slight grapefruit, but mostly fresh, a little grassy nose. Good beer.
