Bottle into a shaker glass.
Whoa Nelly! that is some big flavour. Pours a darkish almost red colour with a two finger off white / beige head. Foam hangs around and leaves great lacing. Smells like a pine and citrus forest with each overlapping the other. Flavour is big and bold. Light sweetness and then screaming loud hoppy bitterness all the way to the end with a lingering coppery note at the end. Was that the rye?
Won’t be for everyone, but that is a hell of a beer, and one will see you through.

From bottle. Poured with a ridiculous 2 inch head. Color of a dark amber homebrew. Smells good but tastes of unbalanced bitterness. Disappointing

4.1
ShaneJ (900) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle from Purvis Cellars (September 2014). Dark amber-brown, fluffy white head, herbal/floral, peppery. aniseed, sweet malt dominated by the citrus hops, strong bitterness, thick texture, full body, big peppery, bitter finish. Excellent.

3.7
Maris (1596) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2014
From a 500ml bottle on 28/12./2014. Pours a cloudy amber with a biggish head which disappears quite quickly. Has a very pleasant nose featuring lots of fruity hops. In the mouth, there’s a good dash of caramel malt, some citrus and stone fruit (orange and peach), and a big rye influenced hop bitterness, which has more than a touch of saltiness to it. Has a medium body and is perhaps a touch over carbed. All up, this is a quite solid rye IPA. I’d like a bit more countering sweetness and a touch less carbonation, but these are relatively minor quibbles.

3.5
Davros (3310) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2014
Pours copper with a large head.
Nose shows soft floral hops, resinous notes, spicy and bready rye along with a little tropical fruit.
Aggressively hoppy flavours focussing on pine and a sharp, aggressive and almost metallic bitterness. Some spicy rye but very little malt sweetness to balance things out.
Carbonation is pretty crazily high.

3.4
Jado (805) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2014
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy red-brown with a rocky off-white head and soda-like carbonation. Aromas of caramel, plums, pepper, pine needles and red grapes. Taste is rich caramel up front giving way to a very firm pine resin bitterness in the mid-palate. Slips away to a lingering bitter and spice aftertaste. Pretty good but quite full on.

3.4
Rangi (671) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 24, 2014
Very tasty wee beverage. Great hop and malt combo going on with the beer leaning more toward a malty red ipa. Nice spice involved. Very tasty very good would have again.

3.9
LesArgen (383) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2014
This one’s a little like a siren, luring you in with a sweet, easy aroma of honey, resin, pine needles and nice, dry rye hops. Then, before you know it, you’ve been smashed on the rocks of a hop and rye beast, but what a way to die. There’s a good deal of roasted malt in the finish as well.
