COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a bold Rye India Pale Ale with an added spiciness from a healthy addition of rye malt. The rye also contributes a nice red hue to the beer. Despite being heavily hopped during the boil, we add a generous amount of hops during the end of fermentation to give this beer a pronounced citrus hop aroma and flavor.

oobawa (867) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2016
Tingly and lingering like a good rye IPA should be, but the sweet malt center might be a little too heavy for its own good. Gets thick in the middle, a tad syrupy with a deep caramel vein, until the piney hop finish rouses all the loafers. Not bad, but could use a little more vitriol.

aracauna (3550) - Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Not really hoppy enough to qualify for IPA, but a solid malt backbone and a bitter hop finish. A little astringent.
