hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Draft... This beer rocks!… Deep, dark, dirty-orange pour with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is rindy and lightly musky - grapefruit rind and underarm. Full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. In the flavor, rich malts are outshone by acrid and citrusy hop bitterness. Lengthy, tongue-numbing, lightly bitter finish. World-class beer!

JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Dark copper color with a moderate/stable light tan head. Aromas of green hops, rye, pale malts and hint of lactose. Slick rye body. Quick sweet start. Rye spice and hops quickly attack. Some light fruit notes. Finish is lightly buttery. Solid rye. 6/14

john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Bottle. Deep Copper in colour with Reddish hints. Small off-white head. Very Hoppy; rather intense piney resinous hops. Fruity; grapefruit and orange citrus. Quite spicy. Malty; heavily malted, grainy spicy rye malts, caramel. Bitter hoppy and citrus fruity meets sweet malts. Increasingly hoppy and dry into the finish. Liked this. Intensely hoppy Imperial Rye IPA!

willisread (3349) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle from J’s. No date, but probably old judging on the most recent ratings on here. Pours a murky burgundy with a half finger of head that dissipates quickly. Tangerine and grapefruit aromas dominate the nose with a touch of peach and lemon. Full-bodied and chewy on the palate, syrupy, bready biscuity malts. Carbonation is muted at this point. More tangerine and honey marmalade. Finishes smooth with a lingering honey stickiness and peppery rye. Really held up pretty well for probably a year old.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy with a nice dry finish.

4.3

KansaiBeerLvrs (5153) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 1, 2016
Road Warrior Imperial Rye IPA 9%

Served in a snifter. It pours a deep red-purple like a beautiful hardwood with a light beige head.

The nose on this is quite good, a bit of peppery spice from the rye, an earthy pine & citrus fruit hop quality then a malt sweetness to balance it out.

The taste is bitter pine and earthy rye while you get a brief hit of sweetness in the aftertaste it is quickly dominated by bitterness. For hop heads looking for a slight twist on a Double IPA this will do the trick nicely
