Rust bucket is a balance of rye and barley malt. The rye gives it a little spiciness which combines nicely with the hops which contribute a citrussy note.

Benzai (15094) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2017
Tap @ The Sunflower, Belfast, shared with Niilstrong. Hazy medium to dark orange color, medium sized off-white to beige head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma and flavor both are moderately malty, lightly rye, very hop forward, light tropical fruit hops, fruity in general with a nice hop bitter finish. Medium body, decent to medium carbonation. Nice.

esmanuel (3) - Eastleigh, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2017 does not count
Bought from The Beachcomber, Rathmullen. Smells of pepper graipfruit, a touch smoky. Pours a dark copper, cloudy. Taste first of a hoppy IPA then quickly kicks in malt and pepper with a dry finish. Really enjoyed this, I would recommend.

500ml bottle from McCambridges Of Galway (3.95):
Great stuff & definitely up there with the best from the brewery that Ive tried so far. The beer was very fresh & lively with a lot of hop bitterness & tropical fruits coming through, something that is usually missing from a lot of Irish brewed IPAs sadly. There was a good balance between the tropical flavours, hops & the caramel sweetness that followed & as a result the beer was a very easy one to drink. The taste was flavoursome & varied with plenty going on, the only slight negative being the amount of sediment that was showing in the glass but its definitely a beer Ill be on the look out for again.

Scrumpy369 (677) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2016
On tap at Monroes, Galway. Hazy yellow-light orange colour, small white long lasting head. Nose is tropical fruity. Mango, passion fruity yummy. Taste is medium bitternes. Fruity, hoppy taste. Very nice and refreshing but not really rye-y.

beerbomb65 (46) - Dunmore, County Galway, IRELAND - MAR 28, 2016
from bottle pours a hazy amber colour with a small head and a little lacing. A citrussy and hoppy nose, pine resin and fruity. Taste of orange marmalade and some toasted grain and hoppy bitterness, slight spicy note, good carbonation but not much rye only faint. Decent enough beer though, enjoyable.

Draught at The Beirhaus. Almost clear gold with decent lacing. Malty with tropical hops. Fairly dry with good bitterness.
