COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A flame throwin’ Rye IPA ignited by a 25% shot of rye malt and capped by a booty hoppin’ blast of Mt Hood and Centennial hops that makes this IPA bounce!

Strong aroma with many different smells present. Excellent taster, very flavorful with a strong malt flavor. It has a light, copper color.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours gold with a slight white head and surprisingly thick lacing. Sweet citrusy aroma without much of the rye on the nose. Same with the taste. Very citrusy and floral hop character without much rye bite. Very easy drinking.

OldGrowth (2755) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pint at Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma sweet. Fruity. Apricot. Mango. Cereal. Clean golden orange color, good initial head, faded quickly. Minor lafe. Sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy oily mouthfeel. Bitter finish. Good beer, not a jaw dropper but solid.

Jon_Afghan (4) - Alabama, USA - APR 13, 2013 does not count
Taste of hops, malt and rye in this bad boy. If you like Straight To Ale’s Hell or Rye Water, you’ll like this. Has an earthy finish...pretty awesome brew.

pras (490) - Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2013
Aroma of hops, malt, and rye. Flavor was hop forward with a punch of rye in there. Flavor was slightly astringent. Main downside to this brew is that the mouthfeel was rather thin and lacked body.

strap (459) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - APR 6, 2013
Cloudy amber with a pine aroma. Rye really comes through. Decent hops and not bad for a rye beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stevencon (464) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2013
Tap at proof. Clear orange with white head. Rye earthy spiceyness. Ginger? Lots of herbal earthy hop character and rye. Light body drinkable. Good for at hot day but not blown away.

floydslip (200) - Washington DC, USA - APR 4, 2013
Murky orange-brown beer with a creamy head. Hoppy scent with hints of pine. Initial flavor is bitter without being overly so, which then develops with a pleasant sour complement, and finishes with slight citrus. A good IPA that does not overwhelm with hops.

Patrickctenchi (4090) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours hazy, orange-yellow with a thick, off-white head. Aroma is orange malt, rye. Taste is citrus and a substantial rye. Earthy/herbal hop bittering. Very nice.

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Beer of the month club bottle. Pours cloudy light orange with a tiny white head. Aroma of orange peel, honey, pine, and a hint of spice. Flavor is strong orange zest with a spicy rye tone. Some nice bitter bite, and dry rye finish. Light mouthfeel and pretty drinkable as I have found with other Sweetwater pales. Good beer.
