Hops. Flames. Flames. Hops. Did you get all of that? Good. Horns Up Rye IPA is a no holds barred India Pale Ale, chockers full of the best hops New Zealand and the US have to offer, all riding on a solid malt backbone with a hefty serve of malted rye to deliver to your taste buds the Lupulin kick you’ve been craving. Big pungent hops on the nose followed by hop flavour and bitterness cascading over the tongue with malt sweetness and biscuitiness from the rye. This IPA finishes strong and dry with a lingering bitterness that just goes on, and on, and on like a screaming heavy metal guitar solo, and an after taste that reminds you that you’ve just had an awesome hoppy experience, like the ringing in your ears after a decibel shattering concert. Horns Up!

Keg - The Beach Club, Collaroy. Poured a slightly haazy golden amber with a lasting white head. Aromas of citrus and tropical fruits amidst biscuity pale malts and rye hints. Mid-weight, medium carbonation and a moderate to full length and intensity resinous bitterness to finish

300ml bottle from Crafty Brew. Aroma was poor, maybe the bottle was a bit old? There was some pine and citrus, just not a lot of it. Beer poured a lovely clear amber with plenty of carbonation and a lovely white head. Tastes of caramel, strongly of rye and a hint of white pepper. Rye was a little overpowering for me but the bitterness was good, shame about the lack or aroma in this particular bottle. A little disappointing overall.

Looks..yellow orange, med-good size head. Smells..big stone fruits and resinous pine, caramel and definite rye which hints to me of a little of a peppery spice. Tastes..choc full of hops, juicy stonefruits, resinous and bitter, plenty of rye malt that they speak of, is slightly smokey, big long bitter finish. Impressive.

Jado (805) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2015
330 ml bottle. Hazy orange body capped by a tightly packed white head. Lemon, flowers, bread and spice in the nose. Taste is sharp citrus at first, soon overwhelmed by a very firm pine resin bitterness with some peppery spice notes. Long drying finish with a bitter aftertaste. A big beer but good with food.

varanid99 (1399) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 9, 2015
Orange pour with a fluffy white head. Citrus, pine, floral aromas. Taste is dry, spicy, grapefruit and quite bitter, finishes with long dry bitterness

Dervock (1506) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle - excited to get out of the bottle, pours hazy orange with a big white head. Aroma is a mix of floral hops with a hint of citrus, little bit resiney and some sweet malt. Taste is dominate by the hops, citrus comes through stronger. Finish is dry and flowery. Palate is dominated by the carbonation, which needs toned down a wee bit. Decent, beer not over done.

Muggus69 (2807) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2015
330mL bottle from Slowbeer Bit of a gusher - eventually pours a billowing head atop a hazy orange body. Nice hop-driven nose - citrus rind, grass, tropical fruits, spicy, toasty, doughy malt undertones. Lively carbonation, full body, with a sort of slickness to it. Reminds me of orange-passionfrui juice - some grass & spice in the background. Firm bitterness, dry oily finish. Pretty good, slightly ruined by overcarbonation.

RafeAU (628) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 29, 2015
On tap at Hopdog beerworks tap takeover at the Durham, May 2015. Pale amber pour, hoppy IPA with a bit of that spice from the rye and a slightly harsh bitterness. I preferred their mystery hop ipa but this was a solid IPA itself.
