Default SA Belgian Style iPA and American Style Rye Ale

After work me and a co-worker of mine went to Cheeseburger In Paradise for a burger and a beer. After the waitress took our order, she told us Sam Adams was having a tasting and if we're interested she'll send the girl over after we're finished.

She came over with 4 samples, 2 Belgian style IPA and 2 American Rye Ale. we each had 2 samples of each, we needed to be sure which we liked best, meanwhile I asked if she had any free Sam Adams pint glasses, told her I am a homebrewer and I use SA bottles for bottling. she said no but she she said she can give me a T-shirt intead. she came back and said, "I totally hooked you up" She gave me a SA T-Shirt, baseball hat, and 2 sample bottles.

We both liked the Belgian IPA better, but the American Rye was decent, admittedly it was the first Rye Ale either one of us ever tasted.

Any tasting notes on either?

What kind of hops did they use on the IPA?
