Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is of pine and grains (sort of bread-y). Flavor is good: pine, citrus, hops, malt, bread, and coffee. However, didnít get so much rye. Good overall, worth a try!

GarrettB (988) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2014
July 10th, 2012 - I canít remember where I got this, or where I drank it, or why, but it must have been at the tail end of a trip. At the very least, it was likely another beer in a summer which I excluded most carbohydrates from my diet. Beer was one of the sole exceptions, which meant each beer had to be worthwhile. This one pours a deep, hazy orange, with a thick head and lots of off-white lacing. Some orange peel and hops expresses in the aroma, which a general sweetness that brings much of that orange marmalade quality found in some sweeter IPAs, but coupled with some fresh, cheap leather, too. The taste is sweet up front, but pushes fresh orange (in contrast to the aroma) and even some banana, with a medium to short aftertaste featuring some fresh cherry sweetness. Itís sweet, tangy and unique, but totally separate from the rye flavors I was expecting in both the nose and the flavor.

EricTeusink (657) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Drank with deadCATAtlanta while installing my garage beer fridge. I am a touch annoyed that we didnít get this fresh, as it was still a solid beer past its prime. Scent is cereal and a touch of booze. Rye bitterness lasted, but the hops had faded. Nice amount of sweet. Pour darkish amber with decent head. Light-Medium crisp body. Bottle - Share from DeadCATAtlanta

DaCar (2) - Long Beach, California, USA - SEP 29, 2013 does not count
Served on tap at the brewery, poured a beautiful orange/rust color with a nice creamy one finger head. Got a strong floral smell with a nice grapefruit aroma lofting around. Drink was smooth and full of flavor, great finish along the back of the tongue.

Wittales (611) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Appearance was clear copper gold with lasting creamy off white 2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet pale, crystal malt base, then hops of citrus and tropical with spicey rye. Taste are slightly sweet malt upfront gaves way to spicey rye, but subtle. Hops of lemon, grapefruit, and orange, melon with hints of alcohol. Palate are creamy smooth CO2 with medium body, lasting spicey rye hoppy finish. I likey, try if you like the Rye.
