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!

Bottle. Golden color with a big soapy white head. Nose is juicy hops and wet grass. I don’t get any rye in the flavor, just lots of nice sweet, floral hops. Those hops continue into the finish, which then mixes in some peppery bitterness, and only a faint hint of rye late in the finish. It feels overly flat in the mouth. Otherwise, a nice IPA.

Rich hazy copper and amber coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rye (naturally), bright floral hops, alcohol, grain and cleanser - strong and pungent throughout. Medium-bodied; Strong rye and grain flavour at first with a good floral, citrus and piney hop note and a solid light honey sweetness near the end. Aftertaste shows the mellow sugars at first but then fades into the more ’natural’ floral hoppiness and of course the grain and rye. Overall, a nice rye-based IPA with a very balanced note and still some nice complexity throughout - great to sample if you like rye-based beers or IPAs with more of a deeper malt profile. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Corner Store (Bait & Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida on 30-December-2013 for US$2,39 sampled at home in Washington on 28-August-2014.

12oz bottle. pours a semi cloudy orange color with white head. the aroma is malt based with mild hop and definite rye. the flavor was damn good. very nice blend malt backbone with the spiciness of the rye and the bitterness of the hops. almost a floral hops presence. medium bitterness from start to finish. really like this one.

Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow to orange color with a nice looking one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. The smell had a nice allocation of Rye malt to spicy hops. The taste was mainly spicy with a touch of sweetness to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly nice sessionability about it. The carbonation was nice and sharpness about it. Overall, this was a pretty well done Rye IPA.

Bottle pours amber with white head. Aroma is nice fruity hops and light spicy rye. Taste is similar with a dry bitter finish.

Pours a mildly murky golden color with no head. Some fruitiness on the nose. Wet, slick mouthfeel. Some scrubbing underneath. Flavor is Rogue Dead Guy-ish crossed with Magic Hat #9. Not great.

The flavor is what makes this beer great. It has a soft hoppy bite at the finish and a delicious rye malt flavor up front. Great for those who love IPAs or those who are just getting their foot in the door of drinking hoppy beer.
