This beautifully complex, boldly hopped, amber-colored IPA uses rye malt to give the beer a subtle spiciness. It’s bittered with Bravo and Nugget hops before heading to the hop back packed with whole flower Chinook. Finally, we bomb it with Centennial, Citra, Simcoe, and Columbus, creating a pungent ale with intense notes of citrus and pine.

jgb9348 (5174) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Rich light brown and a deep copper and bronze body with a bright pumpkin coloured glow and a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of rye (what else?), grain, alcohol, hops, earth and a touch of caramel and brown sugars. Medium-bodied; Assertive grain and rye flavour with some mellow earth and a little sweetness and a touch of hops noticeable. Aftertaste is relatively simple with a touch of sugars and some faint rye and hops - nothing special here. Overall, a pretty disappointing beer with not much hops, not much rye and no complexity at all. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Fair Lakes (Fairfax), Virginia on 02-August-2015 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 24-September-2015 to celebrate the Pope coming to Philadelphia (and Washington/New York).

Bottle. Copper pour with a thick fluffy off white head. Aroma is pine and Jolly Rancher sweetness. Taste follows and adds a touch of rye spiciness and citrus. Medium mouthfeel and spritzy carb. A little too sweet but otherwise a really solid offering.

Pours an amber with half-inch head, decent lacing. Sweet malts, caramel, some brown sugar. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Malty with motes of honey, followed by bitterness at the back of the tongue. A very drinkable offering from Yards.

boto (1969) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Draught: this one pours a fairly clear coppery color. There was a small off white head that left minimal lacing. Good aroma! A touch of rye and citrus hops. The taste is good. A good balance of rye, citrus hops and malts. Nice.

Bulk_Carrier (2884) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Bottled 12/16/2014. This was poured into a nonic. The appearance was a nice looking hazy burnt orange to ruddy red color with barely any head to it. What lacing is there slides. The smell starts off with a fairly decent sweet to light spicy rye malt. There’s a slight sweet fresh grassiness to it. The taste took the sweet/spicy rye and allowed in a tad caramel malt to balance. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style though a bit old on the date, still I bet if fresher, this would portray everything necessary for a good Rye IPA. Overall, I get it. It works for me as a Rye AIPA. Hopefully, I’ll find another fresher.
