Earthy, dry malt backbone. Peppery spice notes, high bitterness. Pine, spruce, orange rind.
DATE: July 6, 2016... OCCASION: Greeting Shan after an attempt to score Hamilton tickets...but she is still in good spirits... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... dark, handsomely gradient amber body with ample bubbles... a frothy, off-white head settles evenly and leaves cloudy ribbons... a fresh, light, toasted bread aroma begins, with the spiciness of rye--pepper, lemon and suntan lotion (?!)--with a heaviness towards the dough... the first sip is invigorating, with a medium-bodied, creamy, thickness that is almost chewable... nutty, toasted, and bready, with a lemony citrus kick... nice peppercorn crackle, with a strong back end finish that lingers.... this beer packs a powerful flavor profile without tipping its hand in terms of ABV... an excellent stand-alone that compliments Smuttynose’s portfolio...

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Bottle, thanks vino! Amber color with nice white head. Aroma is piney, resinous, sticky. Taste is more piney, resinous, sticky, a bit spicy, bittersweet finish. Medium carbonation. Simple, but what it does, it does well - very nice, although I don’t get a lot of rye spiciness in here... Hangover (1136) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Dark orange pour with a medium off white head. Nice sweet citrus aroma. Citrus flavor up front, resinous hoppy middle, lingering malty, spicy finish. This beer is straight up delicious. TylerGreenDC (953) - - MAY 24, 2016
Draft. Nice reddish color. Flavor is slightly syrupy sweet, without much else. Odd under-carbonated mouthfeel. Just kind of meh.

, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium slightly sweet and sour aroma with overaged mango and a hint of vanilla. Darker yellow/orange color with small natural white head and slightly hazy liquid. Medium taste with slightly overaged fruits, sweeter malts and hops. Rye can be tasted easily. Medium/wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with hops and fruits. Averagely balanced. Medium body with light/medium carbonation. Overall, good quality though unsurprising product. Good implementation of rye.
Another beer from Smuttynose’s arsenal that manages to be a really solid beer that’s readily available and inexpensive. This is a great Rye IPA that combines spicy/earthy rye bite and general IPA hop bitterness, but that manages to be tasty and refreshing, all while costing about $1.50 a bottle. It’s stuff like this that makes Smutty such a great brewery. AdmiralVernon (1195) - SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2016
Great IPA! I loved this one with a well balance of flavours, bitterness and sweetness.
