Red, darker than a typical IIPA, thick tan head. Nose full of very resiny hops. Flavor is quite muted for the style, some dusty malts and floral hops, but there’s nothing "imperial" about this one. Just not much going on. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Wow, this beer is loaded with hops and alcohol. But yet, it is welll made. So, dont share this with your miller lite friends, cause this is a whole lotta beer. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2006
If I didn’t know any better, I would have to call this a beer a HOPPED UP QUAD!!! Dark red in color. Thick off white head. Ton of hops in this one. Hearty malt aroma. This beer IS obscene. I love It! brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Hard hop and rye aroma, taste is flavor and bitter hops with a solid malt background,and that wonderful rye zing in the background. Alcohol is barely noticeable.It just seems to me that hops and rye are such a natural combination,and this is another wonderful example,a double IPA and Rye. I recommend all lovers of Red Rye to check this out jazz88 (2699) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 7, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 Rating #1 Tap @ Amnesia Bar (7 4 6 4 16). A dark mahogany color with a tan head. Deep rich fruits (cherry), wood and earthy body with a malty caramel chewy base. A strong powerful aroma and flavor. Rating #2 Bottle (8 4 7 4 17). A brown ruby color with a foamy light tan head. A nice spiced rich malty citrus and hoppy aroma that foretells a big beer. Balanced well between being too bitter and too sweet. A peppery spiced dripping with hops syrupy goodness.

Pours a clear but dark brown with a light tan head. Smells hoppy with rye bread in the backdrop. Taste is of rye and hops with elements of doughy yeast. BuckeyeBoy (8469) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2006
22oz Bottle Pours out a clear amber topped withg a tall tan head. A very nice hop aroma. Pretty good sweetness. On this one. Along with some malt on it as well. thanks Indiana_Red IndianaRed (5031) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Bottle pours a very clear deep redish copper with a large creamy light tan head. Lots of stong carmely malts and bitter hoppy notes. Flavor is about what I expected. Rich thick malt flavors and lots of bitterness. Late woody almost cardboardy aftertaste. Very thick heavy palette. Long lingering bitterness.

Dark orange-brown color with thin head. Piney hop aroma. Flavor is a sweet maltiness with a bitterness that lingers through the finish. Not as aggressive as other DIPAs, but enjoyable throughout, and better looking than most.
