4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had after a Sweetwater IPA to compare the two. Pours a dark clear amber/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is rye and some hops: citrus, mild grapefruit, and some pine. Taste is similar, with a more pronounced rye character and less hops. Finish is less bitter and less sweet overall. This is the first rye IPA I’ve had, so I don’t really have anything to compare it to. Good, but not as good as the IPA. Still not sure how two IPA’s belong in a winter variety pack.

Pours just like the picture. Smell is hoppy and fruity. Grassy notes, similar to an ipa. Tastes sweet, hoppy, bold, and full of rye. Pretty easy to drink. Good stuff that is in my standard rotation

Clear copper with no head. Nose is a little fruity and floral, a touch of resin, and earthy bright malts. Bitter beginning with grassy acidic hops, spicy rye malts, and a doughy earthy blonde finish. Eh.

3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweetwater LowRYEder is a basic rye beer. Very little aroma detected from the copper amber pour with a nice head. Nice balance and rye and malt taste with a hoppy finish. From the perspective of an IPA, there is not much complexity. Finish is pretty clean. Sweetwater LowRYEder is a nice beer to enjoy with food, but just average as a craft beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden color with a large head. Aroma is grains and not as much hops as one would think for an IPA, a tad of citrus. Taste was surprisingly missing of hops also. Overall not a bad beer. Not great but it really was a thirst quencher

In a sampler pack from my son. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was fruity and some crisp grapefruit. The taste was bitter, hoppy and grapefruity. It was smooth and fruity with crisp hoppiness and a little peach to grapefruit in the finish. Very well done.

Bottle: Murky gold color with not much head. Leather, musty, hop aroma. Bitter hairspray with the definite rye accent mixed in with the hops. Almost a slimy finish.
