Strong rye, burnt sugar and oatmeal aroma. Deep copper color with a one-finger foam. Strongly carbonated flavors of rye, burnt sugar, maple and english yeast strands. Overall, nice and flavorful. Slightly dark and robust flavors with a nice hop bitterness on the finish. I’d give this a B+ rating. AndyW68 (1541) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 5, 2013
Orange with white head. Aroma is much better than taste. Aroma is lavender and citrus. Taste is overly bitter and not anything to balance. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light amber-orange color with a small head that quickly fades. Somewhat unique aroma of rye spice, lavender, citrus, and some other spices that I can’t identify. Taste is decent but a bit artificial. Lots of spices and lavender, light stale hops. Moderate bitterness. Dry finish with a slightly odd spicy aftertaste. Ok beer. r464 (2360) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2013
A bit dark and malty, some char and grain. Earthy with a bit of hops to the end. Different, but not a standout. vyvvy (6391) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours hazy copper with a soapy beige head. The aroma has mushy caramel malt, spicy rye, undercooked dough and light nuttiness. Not much in the way of hops on the aroma for an IPA. It has a medium / full body taht’a lush with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor begins with dry caramel, some syrup, rye spice, earth, and spicy hops. the finish is dry, earthy and piny. Decent beer.

A Carmel red with a frothy white head. The rye is hot and make the hops take a back seat. It's like an untamed American rye whiskey.

Drought. Light amber color with creamy beige head showing good retention, lavender aroma, sweetish mildly hoppy taste, average carbonation, long finish. A mild IPA. Ratman197 (14674) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of rye, earthiness, pepper and pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, earthiness and light pine with a smooth dry lingering rye finish. jhp40219 (449) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 29, 2013
12 oz bottle poured into imperial pint glass. Pours a copper/ dark orange with a bit of a red hue. Large white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of spices, hops, malt and cinnamon. Taste is pretty malty for an IPA. Malts, rye, citrus and hops in the taste. Hop bitterness really don’t come through until the finish. Nice full body, pretty creamy texture, carbonation is a bit high though. Overall an interesting IPA in that the hops aren’t as dominant. Finhead (1742) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Hazy, brown-orange pour with an off-white head. The aroma has caramel with just a hint of spicy rye. It has a light, slightly oily texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a very dry finish.
