3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Severed on draft at Capital City. Poured a copper color with a little haze, nice head and lacing as I drank. Basically an IPA with rye added. Had good aroma but lacked a true rye bite. Could have upped the malt for more sweetness to balance.

Served on draft at the Virginia Craft Brewers Festival, Devils Backbone, 8/25/12. Pours a hazy dark rust color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of big rye notes, herbal and earthy hops. The taste is earthy and herbal hops with strong rye notes. Medium bodied, refreshing, lingering bitterness, very nice beer.
