Like this one a lot. A very fresh, hoppy IPA, without being super bitter. Strong citrus notes and to a lesser extent pine from the hops. But what makes the beer is a perfect complement of spiciness from the rye. Blends together perfectly! A-

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a slightly dark golden color with a thin white head. The aroma a stone fruit, slight floral, rye notes. The taste is slightly sweet upfront followed by balanced bitter finish. The rye is there but not over powering the overall flavor. Overall a very good Rye IPA for me. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with an off white head. Very spicy, dank resiny hoppy, mild pineapple, piney aroma. Spicy herbal, piney hoppy, light fruity, a bit chewy, spicy rye refreshing flavor. Cool beans. Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2013
22oz bomber pours up with a crystal clear gold body that supports a tall dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up soft floral hop notes, cantaloupe, bits of citrus and then a touch of mango. The taste has a pleasing degree of grapefruit, tangelo and mango like fruity hoppiness where bitter hops run out ahead in the front of the flavor. To midway it gets a little spicy just as a light white wine fruitiness is noticed. Nice IPA. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Pours a light orange with a small white head with some lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, rye, sweet biscuit malts, light dank hops, and some light tropical fruits (mainly cantaloupe). Taste is citrus (grapefruit and orange), pine resin, rye bread, sweet malts, biscuit malts, tropical fruits, and some light dank grassy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi-moderately bitter, medium long, juicy and refreshing finish. Overall, a pretty nice, refreshing, sessionable rye IPA.

22oz bottle. Hazy golden orange with a smallish white head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, bubble gum and rye bread. Flavor is toasty/bready malt, bitter hops and a dryish alcohol finish. Medium body with average carbonation. Great aroma in this one, overall a really nice IPA. Beerdrinker79 (2218) - Idaho, USA - SEP 20, 2013
22 oz bottle- Pours hazy pale golden with a two finger head that slowly reduces. Aroma is spicy hops, piney and sweet sticky malt. The taste is PCNW hops, piney and citrusy, resinous and oily, there is a balanced malt there, but it is light enough that this is all about the hops. The body is medium and coats the mouth, high carbonation. Nice IPA, I don’t really get why you have to take a "Trip" just to make a straight up IPA like this one! bhensonb (15751) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light golden amber with a whitish head. Fruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is lighter stone fruit or maybe citrus over very mild malt. Mild hop burn. Noticeable rye. Hop and rye spice build with time. Finishes dry and decently bitter. Excellent. Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Thought the aroma could have been better; however, the flavor is real solid with a lot of juicy (non-oniony) hop character. The finish is quick and bitter. I sort of pick up the rye on the end but it’s harder to tell with these hops congregating in this brew...oh that band, have you ever microwaved a CD?
