Draft. Amber with small tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of floral hops. Some malt sweetness upfront with a bitter hop finish.
Keg pour at RC Brewfest. Clear, reddish-brown with a light head. Sweet aroma with a light malt scent and some floral notes. Smooth taste with a slight bitterness, a bit sweet with a lot of things going on - hops, rye, citrus. Very nice and different from the standard IPA. magsinva (1241) - Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Pours a deeper cloudy orange, white head, no lacing. Aroma is orange and rye. Taste is sweet-bitter rye. Palate is dry with little lingering bitterness. Thin. OK, but the rye overwhelms any hops. Itzjerm (2811) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2011
This is by far the best offering by Blue Pants. Solid IPA, the Rye definitly counters the hops which creates a very balanced enjoyable beer. I will get this one again. Hops were slight on citrus. Good mild IPA. DiarmaidBHK (4797) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2011
On tap at the noon. Pours orange with a small head. Rye dominates both the aroma and the taste. Can’t say I’m getting much hoppiness out of this one.

Draft. Sampled at Magic City Brewfest. Poured a hazy golden copper with a medium-sized off-white head. The rye adds some interesting grainy and spicy notes. This seemed awfully mild for an American IPA. I’d have pegged it as an APA or simply a rye ale. Pretty good. 7% ABV seems oddly high for a mild, otherwise sessionable ale. bleeng (1681) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - APR 22, 2011
Hazy dark yellow. Nose is a bit hoppy, lots of rye and malts. Taste is full of grain and rye. A bit sweet. But easy drinking. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 8, 2011
Draft @ the Nook. Hazy orange in the glass with an off-white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Aromas of milk chocolate? Caramel flavor with a light hop backing. Medium body, smooth, and a caramel aftertaste. Kind of off for an IPA. I checked twice with the waitress to insure she brought the correct beer. Needs a big hop kick!

Growler from Liquor Express. Pours a hazy gold with a huge, foamy, white head. The aroma is oranges, apples, wheat and flowers. The flavor is sweet up front, with a little bitterness in the finish. The palate is light, fairly carbonated, very smooth and a little oily. Overall, a very interesting IPA. brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2011
Yeah. First to rate a beer...And on date night to boot! Tap at J Clyde. Lightly hazy golden copper color with a light head. Almost a wheat like presence in the aroma with lightly citrus hops. A bit of hay. The flavor follows suit with an interest malt profile. Soft grain that still screams wheat to me with a very light citrus hop presence. More of an American pale if u ask me . Soft mouth feel and med body. Good and session like if not for the 7%.
