Another new beer on my stop this past weekend. Just an incredible beer. Tons of spicy/piney hops in the flavor. Floral, citrusy hops in the aroma. Very hop forward kind of beer. The hops chosen really go well with the malt bill here. Really smooth, really brought together super well. If it’s on tap and you are visiting, get it.
On tap at the brewpub. Deep golden amber. Thin white head. Super super musty like and old basement. Some earthy spice-pine bitterness. Subtle citrus. Medium heavy body. Long earthy bitter finish. dwyerpg (6378) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 30, 2017
This is okay. The malt is a bit sweet but not too heavy on the rye. It’s pretty good at times but not at othera. Eh. bhensonb (15621) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Tap at the brewpub. Pours dark and very ruddy. Aroma of malt and rye. Med body. Flavor is "Amber mall" and rye. Maybe some citrus hop. Malty, but rye saves the beer. bytemesis (9003) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Tap at fifty fifty. Pours quite hazy Amber, medium creamy off white head, good lacing. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, prominent rye bite. Medium body, lingering bitterness. Zymurgeist2 (2349) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 8, 2015
On tap at the brewhouse as part of a flight of everything they offered! Clear amber with khaki head. Overt malt and perfume. Taste is mostly malt. Thin-ish mouthfeel.

more bitter and dryer than either their pale or their ipa. good body, generous hopping. less balanced than either of the aforementioned beers but quite tasty."

Draft at the brewpub. Hazy golden. Nose grassy hop and biscuit malt. Taste of the spicy rye, strong bitter mid, and peppery finish ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2013
On tap at the brewery in Truckee. Dark orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is slight rye spiciness, dank hops, pine resin. Interesting take on a rye IPA, but everything is a little to far on the subtle side. wchesser (2121) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Danker hops than the Rockslide and darker amber. Much less citrus notes, but the rye is very subtle, too much so for me. Good beer but not a great rye IPA. Ratman197 (15220) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2012
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of rye, earthiness, pine and grapefruit. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, orange zest, pink grapefruit and light pine with a smooth dry bitter lingering rye finish.
