The aroma was very hoppy with citrus and floral notes, but I didn’t detect any rye in the nose. The beer had a nice light yellow color with low foam, low head retention and low carbonation. Though categorized as a Rye IPA, I could not detect any rye whatsoever in the flavor. Basically, this is a classic American IPA without the rye. It had a nice balance of malt and hops that was clean, smooth and crisp.
