Nose is of caramel, rye malt spiciness, and oranges/citrus hops. Perhaps a touch of pine. Pours amber, nice head. The flavor is a nice mixture of caramel, rye malt spiciness, and orange/grapefruit flavor and bitterness. Nice bitterness in this rye IPA. Enjoyable, drinkable beer before a Hawks game.

I couldn’t see the rye dimensions in this as clearly as I’ve seen it in other rye beers, and that’s a good thing. It makes for a fairly classic IPA, one of a number of beers in Seattle that challenged my notion of the "West Coast" IPA style. Fine, but just fine.

On tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest 2011. Ruddy orange pour, with a smallish dense head. Good balance of hops and rye in here. Same balance in the flavor. Just a tad hoppier than other ryes I’ve had, which I like. Really drinkable, maybe just a *tad* dilute. nbondi (203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Copper colored with off-white head. Pineapple, pine, bubblegum, and rye nose. Medium body, good carbonation. Nice, spicy rye with good long finish. Not the best, but worth trying for sho’. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Draft at the pike street. Pours a cloudy medium amber. Loose white head, lots of drippy lace. Big peppery tangy rye nose...god, i am rye’s little bitch. Creamy medium body, could use some bubbles. Toast caramel and rye mid palate, gorgeous. Dark resiny husky finish. Nice.
