Takeout Rye IPA is a well-crafted example of a mild rye-based ale, but is a bit too subtle to be considered a truly exemplary Rye IPA.

This brilliantly clear, amber-colored brew with a somewhat fleeting white head starts out with a touch of woody hop aroma with a background rye spicy note to complement the package. The flavor demonstrates a light moderate hop bitterness and a touch of rye spiciness on top of a somewhat sweet malt backbone. Hop flavor is rather low for the style. The brew has a medium body with light carbonation that, in combination with the rye, delivers a smooth character to the mouthfeel. The finish retains the same characteristics as seen in the initial flavor profile. Overall, this is a nice brew that simply needs to be a bit more assertive to meet the IPA style.
