This is brewed with a variety of specialty hops that are hard to find with today’s shortages, including the evasive Simcoe. This beer is clean, brisk and lighter than some with just the right amount of residual hops. The rye adds a spicyness to its malt flavor. Awesome!

On tap at Belching Beaver, pours a clear blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings out floral hops, light dank notes and biscuity malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with biscuity malt, piney hops, and hoppy astringency on the finish. Piney and dry, with no residual sweetness. Very good.

Taps clear golden with a nice eggshell head. Aroma delivers up rye, woody hop and citrus notes. Flavor features more rye, but woody hops and citrus are still present and has some malt character as well. Mouthfeel offers firm body, good fizz, and a rye and a rye and hoppy finish. Get rabid - but if you get too rabid, please call Lyft or Uber. Or a cab.

Flavors are very clean. Come through with citrus and vanilla lemon. A nice IPA well done with good flavors. Lemon vanilla and a bit of awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great piney and spicy nose. Golden-copper color with a white head. Medium weight and carbonation. Bold bitterness that leads to an earthy spice with mild sweet undertones.

Poured into a pint glass.

3.0 A: Nearly clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of foamy white head. Retention is about average and a few wisps of lacing are left.

3.5 S: Spicy earthy rye. Floral and citrusy hops with an emphasis on orange and grapefruit. Touch of caramel maltiness with a strong yeasty breadiness.

3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Spicy earthy rye. Floral and citrus hops per above. Moderate bitterness. Lots of yeasty bread.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and chewy.

3.25 D: Decent beer overall. No real problems, but doesn’t stand out either.
