Definitely light, spicy rich rye flavor to it... Noticeable belgian yeast taste... Pretty good beer... Light in body, not bad, fairly consistent with the Black IPA style... Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Dark brown, slick coffee from the malts and very floral hops. In the mouth it is big and smoky with plenty of fresh hop flavor. This is excellent drinking. Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Draft @ the Neighborhood. Pours a deep coffee brown / black with a creamy beige head. Big piny nose with a ton of roasted malts. Didn’t pick up much "Belgian" in there, damn tasty non the less.....Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2011

tap @ the brew pub. Pours a deep brown / black with a frothy off white head. Great nose of rye and roasted malts. Some light piny hops in the background as well. A damn tasty brew.....
On tap at Urge in RB/Poway on April 28, 2011. They had 8 different brews from Maui that day. Listed as Cascadian Rye IPA. Roasty and sharp, but too much smoke in the nose and palate for my liking.
