I had an old bottle, so take this at arms length. Good enough, not great, nice spicy flavor from the rye. Not much else going on for me. Enjoyable enough. chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2014
2 oz bottle dated best by December 2014.
Medium pour produces 1+ finger of off-white head. Head has good duration and leaves very nice lacing. Clear amber liquid.
Nice aroma of floral and citrus hops with lightly toasted malt.
Modestly complex and balanced flavor, with distinctive rye component.
M - smooth with perfect carbonation. Medium/thin body. Semi-dry finish.
O - a very well-crafted APA with added rye spicing. Excellent rye pale ale. Recommended. mR_fr0g (14024) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle picked up at GBBF. Aroma is grainy, spicy rye bread, raw grains. slightly worty. Clear bright orange coloured pour with a sticky slightly greeny white head. Some piney, slightly wet grassy hops in the nose as well. Flavour is composed of grainy rye bread, spicy pine needles, grainy wheat. Some light caramel and brown sugars. Nice malt complexity. Palate is highish carbonation, semi-sweet. Touch of chalk on the tongue. Pretty drinkable, maybe a little too sweet. OsuStu (287) - - AUG 19, 2014

Enjoyably well balanced beer, earthy hops nicely balanced by slightly sweet, nutty malt with hints of grapefruit and orange zest. Lovely beer.

One of my "go to IPA’s" especially for outside grilling and hanging out. Well balanced and not too hoppy if not in the mood. Great "bang for your buck" brew novice101 (323) - - JUL 15, 2014
This is a nice beer, the rye and malty back bone is really awesome as it provides enough balance and a good bit of spice to the citrus and floral notes. vlan1 (220) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours a clear yellow gold with moderate head. Aroma is mild citrus and garlic. Flavor is mild ,bitter and herbal/grassy with a unpleasant burnt flavor in the aftertaste. This stuff was really hard to drink and became even worse as it warmed. Considering the amount of good reviews I wonder if this was a bad keg/batch. Will have to revisit at some point.

Lemony spicy aroma. Slightly cloudy from rye. Thin head. Clean. Taste is rye with subtle spicy hop flavor. Light body finishes crisp and refreshing.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 12oz bottler poured into a shaker. Strong notes of rye bread and citrus as well as some caramel and pine. A big, puffy, off-white head leaves behind a messy webbing of lace. A big poofy island lingers for a long time, but eventually reduces to a thin soapy ring sitting on top of a clear, caramel-orange colored beer. The taste is a medium-high bitter, but balanced nicely with a smooth, medium sweetness. The medium body, oily textured beer has a creamy carbonation. It finishes with a caramel and rye, juicy/syrupy quality with some bread and fruit. The aftertaste is a light, mellow, dry and clean rye grain.
