This bottle is around ten months old. The age helps. Not the prettiest beer, but the aroma is heavy on the rye and malt, sweet yet giving off a few alcohol fumes as well. Tastes pretty darn good, full of orange and honeybun, yet with a rye tang that keeps things interesting, plus a strong hop finish that prevents the brew from growing too sweet. The heat rears its head as the beer warms, meaning that, while Rye Squared is tasty, it’s best enjoyed in small doses. (2/27/09) pacond (188) - Muncie, Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Hops and lots of malt. This is a big beer with burnt caramel and sugar flavors. Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Hops, rich bread malt, spice and citrus aroma on this hazy orange brew with a white head. Starts subtle and then hits you with tons of bitterness from a great deal of hops. Slight sweetness at the end and then the bitter lingers.
I prefer the square root of this. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours brown with an off-white head that does not fade. Aroma is floral/citrus hops, rye, resin. Flavor is slightly bitter with a big malty finish. Mouthfeel is very smooth. Really easy drinking DIPA. GTAEgeek (2284) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2011
On tap at the Nook. The pour is dark orange with a large foamy, off-white head. The aroma is apples, citrus hops, some light resin and pine, and syrup. The flavor is intense, but pleasant bitterness, with a nice malt backbone. The palate is heavy, thick and creamy. Overall, a big, smooth and surprisingly drinkable IPA.

Aroma of floral and grapefruit peel with just a hint of carroway. Appears dusty and amber. Tastes of Orange peel and alcohol with just a little cream. Delicious and big.

16 oz pours a orange amber color with a small white head. Aromas of rye, hops and citrus. Sticky mouthfeel with a nice bitter finish phylomatic (3) - Trussville, Alabama, USA - APR 16, 2011 does not count
A: Imagine my name is Orange and I only like Red a little. Nice head with a stubborn retention.
S: I really like the smell. I’m going to make an attempt at explaining it. Forget the malts. I’ve got hops out the wazoo! To make this short, I can create a case for each of these: herbal, perfumy, spicy, leafy, grassy, floral, piney and citrusy.
T: After the smell was so good, this was disappointing.
MF: It’s smooth, little bite. Not a lot of carbonation, especially compared to the head...meh...
overall: Not quite encountered such a juxtaposed selection of attributes in a beer. I like it, but the taste is quite bland in my opinion. BeerFanDan17 (1121) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - APR 13, 2011
An insanely delicious Double IPA. Extremely hoppy and slightly spicy in character. Mild alcohol flavor with intensity. But, great hop-malt balance. That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2011
12 oz bottle crushed at the Rendesvous Restaurant & Beer Emporium in St. Augustine, FL. Golden orange pour with a sticky head. Aroma of big hops and rye. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel. Very hoppy but wonderfully balanced at the same time. A fantastic beer. Loved it.
