Bottle shared with blankboy and garthicus at Rhino. Bright clear refractive reddish amber with an average creamy fomay lasting off-white head. Sharp pungent peppery/catty aroma, fairly grainy. Taste evwn more pungent cattiness, increasing resin bitterness, hard to judge the abv. Average body, good carbonation, long increasingly bitter finish. Really good, different. Thanks, Sammy!

pours a great dark copper, with hoppy and malty aroma notes. One finger foamy head. Full bodied, the hops compliment the malt very well. A great rye IPA.

(Draught) Pours a clear copper body with a medium egg-white head. Aroma of lunch meat, florals, grain, urine, herbs, and grass. Flavor of herbs, nuts, grass, rye, caramel, citrus, and pine with a dry, bitter finish.

fidelis83 (2441) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Pours a clear, brownish dark amber with a chunky 3 finger eggshell head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is big citrusy hops, earthy grain, a bit of caramel, gravel dust, floral hops, white tea, a touch of roasted nuts and some honey. Flavor is full of light citrusy hops, bitter grapefruit, earthy grain, toasted pine nuts, dry grass, a touch of pine, caramel and some spicy hops, or rye, sort of general spiciness to the finish. Palate is medium bodied creamy and slightly slick on entry, has a medium carbonation and dry finish. Nice IPA overall, a very well executed implementation of rye in beer.

I am not a huge rye beer fan but this one had a pleasant complexity. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a large creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was dry and spicy with notes of pepper, rye and was a little bit roasty followed by rough piney hops. The flavor was sweet malts, pine, grapefruit, honey, rye, pepper and almost yeast. The finish was long and sweet with lingering pine, grapefruit and pepper. Medium body. Interesting.

OK, so I’m one of the last to try this? Figures, west coast thing. Yes, big first smell impressions. Citrus big near IPA double bullshit happenning here baby. Yes,these rye beers are in the same vein as the DIPA. I’ll tell you what tho, these SN beers really give you your money’s worth. Yes, big bitter craft beer fer sure. Id say this company makes some pretty good beers for the enjoyment to price ratio. Comes across with good impact start to finish. Numerical rating is for my personal enjoyment.

Far more rye to this one than other rye beers I have had...which leads to some rather odd bitterness. Both the rye and the hops have an odd bitterness that clashes. Aroma of old gym clothes. My 25th S.N. brew and my lowest rated one... disappointing.

12 oz bottle. Nice atmospheric-looking label. Pours hazy orange-brown with a medium beige head with decent retention. Aroma is peachy, grapefruit, rye. Taste is bittersweet and a bit spicy; has a lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel is creamy, carbonation is average. This is a really nice IPA.
