dark orange foggy pour , no hops aroma . malty taste with a late hops bitter flavor . I like it mrsp1107 (6) - Clinton, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2014 does not count
Not too hop-forward for an IPA, but rye doesn’t come through as much as I would like. bytemesis (9489) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Tap. Pours clear light amber, medium off white head, good lacing. Aroma is light pine, gras, cardboard. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, sharp rye and grassy hay notes on top of pine. Medium body, a bit harsh NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Slightly hazy copper pour with an off-white head. Aromas of subtle citrus hops and earthy rye malt. Flavor is rye malts predominantly with light hop character. Decent but nothing special. BrewHaMeister (456) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2014
12oz bottle pours a hazy copper with an off-white head and nice lacing. Aromas of rye, nuts, toast, and malt. Flavor is mild bitter. Nice.

This bills itself as a rye IPA but is really too dark and sweet to be an IPA. It is a brownish orange color, rather clear w/ a rather long lasting head of large to medium bubbles. The nose is of pine and earth w/ a bit of an herbal tinge. Flavor is yet more earthy but in a nice way that sort of reminds me of an exaggerated version of the hop character in a nice bitter. This is a bit on the sweet side which is generally not my thing but it works here due to the creamy texture, which I will presume is the result of the inclusion of rye in the grist. It finishes very mildly w/ a lingering sweetness and just a touch of bitterness. This isn’t a world beater but it’s a pretty tasty beer. Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2014
The rye is there in the nose, with an underlying base of caramel. Pours a reddish-amber, with a quickly fading off-white head. The hops are there, and blend well with the rye, this isn’t on over the top IPA. Nice lingering bitterness on the finish, and a nice drinkable beer. Fatehunter (2640) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a hazy dark straw colored body.
The aroma is rye, musty lemon (in the best way) and earth.
The taste is mild rye at first, moderate lemon bitterness, then it ambles towards a muddled bitter finish.
The texture is crisp with soft edges.
An enjoyable IPA. The taste finish could have been a little more structured though. Tiger_08 (138) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
March 26, 2014. Bottle pours bright amber with lots of carbonation a small off-white head, lengthy retention and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is firstly malt and rye as well as some citrus hops, and pepper. The taste is bitter, spicy, and peppery with some malts and rye. The mouthfeel is soft and fizzy. Palette is just short of hitting the mark for balancing the hops with the rye and spices, despite this being the best offering in the summer 12 pack. Brewbie (497) - New York, USA - APR 6, 2014
12o bottle. cloudy dark amber, nice fluffy tan head. strong malty aroma, biting rye and hop taste, some spice, a little sweetness in the finish.
