UPDATED: SEP 11, 2011 Nice aroma from citrus/woody hops. a bit hazy, but all beers there are unfiltered. Has a great malt backbone, and great flavor from hops, Amarillo? Updated, the rye comes thru more now, and this beer is about as good as it gets for an IPA, perfect balance. Thanks "dude" updated: 9/2011. I had thought this beer had strayed a bit from greatness, but man its back! Fantastic, and its the best IPA in the area.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 Draft. Thickest head I?ve ever seen on a pale ale. Flavors are robust, wintry, meaty. Tons of malt chewiness with rye spice. Finding the hops here is tough. Leaden.

jgb9348 (5820) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2016
Dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of cereal, grain, toffee, earth, malt, alcohol and a bit of light fruits. Medium-bodied; Strong toffee and caramel flavours with a bit of grain, some light alcohol notes, but a bit of rye and specialty grains along with some lighter funk from the yeast and residual yeast. Aftertaste shows the grain, alcohol, toffee, earth and especially nutty flavours with no real offsetting flavours - pungent and strong. Overall, a pretty poor beer that doesnt show much hops, no real complexities, just bitterness and a bit of deep malty notes - more of a scotch ale than anything else. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-December-2015 for US$1,61 sampled at home in Washington on 09-October-2016.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Sampled on draft this beer poured a toffee color with a large creamy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet pine and a bit of spicy rye. The flavor was tangy and sweet pine with undertones of pepper and rye. long finish. Moderately full bodied. Decent.

12 ounce bottle. Copper color topped by a massive foamy beige head. Big toasted malt nose has obvious notes of rye and spicy hops. Bittersweet toasted malt upfront. Resiny hops and rye malt are there as well. Big hop prescence. Well crafted and a must for hop lovers. A very good East Coast IPA.

demannu (401) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Deep copper color with a of white head, no retention, no lacing. Citrus and floral hops on the nose. Semi dry & smooth beer with a medium body. Flavor is balanced and not overly aggressive. Notes of both floral and citrus hops along with rye toast pair up nicely to create an enjoyable beer that is not over done with hops or rye.

dmac (5715) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2016
12oz bottle. Poured a deep clear mahogany body with a smaller to average sized foamy beoge head. Aroma is rye spice, citrus, spicy flower stems, dough and a hint of menthol. Flavor is a slight step down but solid none the less, notes of rye bread dough, old citrus, earthy dry hop cones, floral. Body is medium but sort of flat in the middle and finishes with tight bubbly carbonation.

Aroma is slightly floral with hints of rye. Appearance is dark copper with a decent white head. Tastes of West coast hops up front floral with a touch of citrus. Then the rye notes come in a second or 2 later. Finishes with a little hop bitterness but not overly bitter at all. Nice balance to this rye ipa as some Ive tried go over the top with the rye. Pretty smooth on the palate. Overall very good drinkable rye ipa.
