New to the area, so exploring to find solid brews for each style. So far, this could be my favorite IPA for the DC/Balt area. Given, I've only tried about half dozen or so IPAs here...but this has to be near top tier. Great balance, in which the rye malt give some extra sweetness. Has that east coast-slight English IPA feel, yet some mild West-Coast hoppiness to it. Hazy light to medium orange appearance. This will make the cut of beers to bring back to FL to share.

Can from State Line. Nose lightly woody but strongly citric with great rind/peel. Pour a cloudy pale orange with some brown undertones and subtle hint of pink, head is large creamy yellow-tinged beige, some lace. Taste bright with citrus, low wood, strong earth and rye, medium caramel, lemon, light herbal touch, semi-dry, low bitterness. Sticky lips, medium-full body, not heavy but to be reckoned with. Straddles the line between flabby and sharp, hard to give an unqualified recommendation but is clean and balanced, does refresh well. [2017.07.29: 3.3]

Bottle. Fairly light-colored, almost peachy-looking. Effervescent and light on the tongue, this has a nice mellow fruity basis. The rye gives it a little bit of a grainy aspect, but it’s collectively a lively and pleasant drink. (#6332, 9/19/2016)

On tap at the BNA Party last week.Slightly hazy deep golden color. Spicy earthy resinous and pine with a bit of bready spicy malt to counter. I really enjoyed this beer.

Bottle. Pours brown with a thin khaki head Not a lot on the nose. Lots of rye on the tongue along with a pine element. I’m not sure the two really go that well together. Finish lingers a bit. I agree with the eh!

FROTHINGSLOSH (8164) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Sampled on draft this beer poured a hazy golden-peach color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was cactus, a bit of catbox, pine and was somewhat sweet. The flavor was pine, cactus, sweet and tangy with a moderate bitterness. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

Poured from a bottle in Maryland. Very lite and citrus for a rye. Smooth front. No head. Rather nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden beer with a short off white head. Sharp hop and spice nose. I am a big fan of rye in an ipa and this is a great example. Orange zest and red grapefruit, resin and pine, with lots of rye spice. Full flavored hoppy beer.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of light rye, some floral and lightly resinous hops, caramel and pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, but boring.
