Drank as a draft beer while eating sausages. Beautiful brown colour and a thin head. The hops are well balanced by the sweetness of the rye. A really good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass
Dark tannish orange with a thick cream colored head that reminds me of a pillow.
Scent of piney orange.
Flavor of malty citrus with a malty caramel. Finish was a sweet bitter resin.
An excellent example of a Double Rye IPA.

bottle. a clear, bubbly beer with a amber/orange color and a huge foamy head. tropical, orange, pineapple hop aroma with noticeable alcohol. bitter rye, lots of juicy hops in flavor. full bodied. nice smooth palate for such a big beer. turned out to be a very good beer, but i was a little intimidated by the strong alcohol aroma.

In general, I think these guys are underrated but others seem to agree with me on this beer. The lightest rye IPA in color I’ve seen. The flavor is also far less roasty tan other rye or black IPAs, which is nice. An extremely creamy head, yet overall it’s not all that exciting. Reasonably priced compared to other Crooked Uinta beers.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Pours a beautiful clear mahogany with a VERY thick and rather fine-bubbled light tan head that hangs around for a bit and leaves some generous lacing. Though the head is thick, at least the bottle I got didn’t fizz like the champagne in the locker room of the team that just won the World Series. Aroma is not particularly strong, but does have tempting hoppy and rye notes. Flavor, though, bursts with rye, hoppy, malty, and subtle caramel and bitter notes. Very satisfying! Smooth, firm texture leaves behind a hoppy and rye finish that will have your lips a-smackin’. Get in cahoots with this ’un!

Bottle. Aroma is cheese funky with some citrus. Cloudy brownish orange with a little rough across the palate. Tangerines and deliciousness taste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, caged and corked. Big-time pour, all around. Thick and oily, dark and rusty, with a big head. The aroma is both sweet and hinting at an oily, hoppy monster. This assaults the pallet at the first sip -- thick as a fresh loaf of bread, rich with rye and pumpernickel flavors, and a very noticeable Chinook presence. Big. (#5259, 9/19/2013)

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/31/2013. Pours slightly hazy orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance and good rye presence; and good strength. Taste of tangerine, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness. Good amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral, caramel, spicy rye, bread, herbal, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance with good rye presence, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Double Rye IPA. All around great balance and complexity of hop and rye malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Bomber. The beer pours to a deep amber color with a large head. The aroma has a distinct rye, caramel, a mild citrus hop scent as well. The taste has a sweet upfront taste with a nice balanced finish. Overall a different but very good D RIPA.
