Huge hop aroma came billowing from the bottle upon cracking it open. Beautiful orange color with 2 finger head and lacing. Fantastic rye spicy taste along with the floral/citrus hops. A bit bitey, but amazing. It shocked me just how great this beer is.

A great rye beer. Reddish golden appearance. Sharp hop and rye aroma. A bit of pepper and citrus.

I have had this brew in a 12 oz. bottle and on draft it is currently on of my favorite brews. Great beer if you like a spicy hoppy ipa.

Poured into a half liter glass. This is a sturdy IPA strengthened by a addition of rye. A good dose of malt solidifies this brew. Not a weak piney session beer. Not a hop-head amped up behemoth. This is a great and solid IPA. Bravo and Cheers!

My amazing girlfriend picked up the first bottle being put on the shelves at Harpoon Brewery in Vermont. I had this before when it was the 100 Barrel Series. It was so popular, they made it into a 375ml bottle and started selling it beyond the specialty beer shops. Taken out of my fridge and poured into a Newcastle glass. Best by 7/15/12
A - Poured a 3-finger off-white head with a creamy appearance. The head subsided to a quarter finger pretty fast. The beer is a light golden brown with tons of very hazy / cloudy bits floating around. It looks like a solid dry hopped beer.
S - Yep, great hops right on the nose creating that classic pine and grapefruit scent with bits of orange peel. Iím getting very sweet hops and Iíd like to say Centennial hops but Iím not quite sure. Very very fresh.
T - Thereís a nice solid mix of rye and hops. The rye starts to dominate but the astringent hop profiles blast away at full force and cover the tongue with delightful bitterness. The rye finishes out the taste as you swallow. Very very good. Thereís some roasted malts in this and a bit of nuttiness.
M - 80% bubbles on a single mouth swish that unleashes the great rye taste. Very very drinkable, medium-bodied and delicious rye taste that sticks around after swallowing. Iím a fan!
O - Yeah, I have to buy more of this. Delicious, drinkable and very nice as the weather starts warming up.

Harpoon Rich & Danís Rye IPA has a thick, creamy, off-white head, a clear, orange-golden appearance, and lots of lacing rings left behind on the glass. The aroma is of spicy, pungent, sweet malt, with a rye peppery aspect. Flavor is the same, with hearty bitterness and bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Harpoon Rich & Danís Rye IPA finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and highly drinkable. The 6.9% abv really does not present itself. Overall, this is a very delicious beer, and I think you should check it out. RJT

From bottle; Poured a copper color with a grassy and spice aroma. Starts as an IPA but ends with a touch of rye.

Amber hue of sweet nectar, my god this is a smooth beer. It has aromas of apricots, whisky and honey. A cloudy wildflower appearance. Carbonation is on the light side but very acceptable.
