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.

A - Pours a just barely clear ruby-orange with a finger of frothy khaki head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts, spicy rye, some bready malts, grapefruit and citrus hops, and a touch of pine hops. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet caramel malts with some grapefruit and citrus hops and mild bitterness. Through the middle, the spicy rye comes through with some bready malts, and a bit of pine hops and more bitterness. The finish is a mix of spicy rye and caramel malts with grapefruit hops and some bready malts. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a spicy, dry, and lightly bitter finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice rye beer with some good earthy and spicy rye flavor and great overall balance.

This is my first beer by these guys and Iím impressed. Wonderful toasty rye aroma. A dark brownish-orange color that hints at itís flavor. A hoppy Irish Red without the big maltiness. Medium body. Very drinkable. Nice toasty bitterness.

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

Tap at West Coast Brew Fest 2010. Hazy dark brown pour with a good foamy tan head.Smells rye. medium body; strongish carbonation. Flavor is lots of rye with lots of hop. Finishes a bit sweet - which is over matched by lots of hop. So bitter!!

On tap. Medium to dark brown with a cream/beige colored head. Aroma is definitely rye with some roasty notes and some semi-sweet notes - possibly chocolate? Flavor has some slight caramel malt sweetness with a lot of nice rye character. Some pepperiness and earthy hops towards the finish. Medium bodied. Overall a very nice rye!

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.

Draft at Toad in the Hole. Hazy deep brown with small fine head. Earth, pine, and brown spice aroma. Big flavors of bold, bitter hops, with faint prune and roast way back in there. Palate is dry, bitter, and slightly tart.

Nice aromatic dance between the floral hops and light spice of the rye. good balance of alcohol and malt and enough bitterness to keep me coming back for another sip. wish i had this on tap at home....
