COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppy red ale brewed with Rye malt. Deep ruby red in color, this hoppy American Red Ale speaks to the adventure drinker. Rye malt lends a subtle earthiness and silky body, which complements the big caramel and chocolate malt flavors. Just enough Pacific Northwest hops are added to balance this bold and beautiful beer.

Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a dark reddish brown, a color not unlike a Dubbel, very little tan head. Aroma malty, sweet, raisins, figs, smells like a Dubbel, too. Huh. Body is surprisingly delicate, taste very nice, rye and slight bitterness at at end, lovely finish. Not mind-blowing, just interesting and tasty.

Great rye. His all the right notes, spicy, with enough body to keep the hops honest, while still being refreshing.

A very nice beer. Pours a really nice amber with a thick white head. Smells incredible, like tropical fruit and vanilla. Taste is creamy and little sour, with a hoppy finish. Had on tap at Hopmonk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 Soapy, a hint spicy, quite perfumey hoppy. Moderate body. Moderate to high bitterness. Well made if not quite hitting it out of the park. RERATE. Agreat hoppy rye infused pale.

22oz bomber pours with a clear amber body supporting a tan colored head of foam. The modest aroma is a little roasty, a little nutty as well as delivering some pine hoppiness. The taste is very nice as I get a pleasing mix of mildly roasted malts, a touch of nutty malts and then pine hops backed up by a dark German rye bread like spiciness. To midway a thin ring of citrus hoppiness joins in and helps the experience get even more bitter with hops as the malts seem to get a little bit roastier. Tasty stuff indeed.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - APR 21, 2013
Mildly roasted and spicy rye aromas and flavors dominate, with light bitter hop flavors in the finish. A refreshing, mildly roasted, spicy, beer with a mildly bitter finish. Rye is well showcased. Hops make appearance in finish. Good mouthfeel, decent carbonation and lower ABV. Has a hand-crafted, home brew feel to it. No complaints. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Hazy copper with tan head. Fantastic lacing. Caramel dominates aroma with earthy hops. Full, chewy yeast and malt follow through with a full caramel and toast flavor.

thetmaxx (787) - West Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Poured from a bomber. Aroma is hoppy but reflects the rye malt. Flavor is similar but with a balanced malt character and a nice rye palate. Great beer, lots of lacing and pretty clear.

Light brown pour with a white head. Aroma of caramel malts to go along with the rye and citrus hops, taste is a little spicier with the rye and hoppy flavor shining through. Good Stuff!
