I can't recall having a Rye IPA this heavy on the rye before. It's a proper rye-bomb so I would say it's a very acquired taste. I like rye so I don't really mind it but the taste is definitely right in your face. It's supposedly heavily hopped with all the c-hops but they fall a bit in the background. They could definitely shine through a bit more. All-in-all I enjoyed drinking it, but I'm sure there are many craft beer lovers that will have a hard time with this one.

Pours light amber. Heavy aroma of tropical fruit that is absolutely lovely. Some piney notes too.. Even the flavor does not disappoint. Easy drinking but still with a very intense aroma of tropical fruits like mango and a bit of grapefruit. A little soft lingering bitterness too. A fantastic crushable pale ale.
