COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA/Rye hybrid begins with a citrusy, earthy, slightly spicy hop nose. Soon the playfully assertive Cascade and Chinook hops flex their bittering muscles for balance and a clean finish to this medium-bodied ale.

At first sniff there feels to be very little nose, but upon drinking there is plenty of lingering rye and bitter hop taste to make up for this shortcoming. This beer is bitter, though not as much as some have credited it with. I feel the tnag that you get from the citrus and pine is being unfairly attributed to the bitterness. In all, it isa good slow drinking beer that you can appreciate over time.

Cloudy orange amber with medium to small creamy white head, somewhat lasting with streaks of lace. Aroma of rye, citrus, peach, some pine, caramel. Flavor is much the same. Medium body. Fairly bitter finish, a little dryness. Looking at older reviews I feel like they’ve improved this. Under appreciated.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Pours a dark copper, orange, with lots of floating particles, and generous head. Robust citrus, fruity, hoppy aroma. Pretty bitter hop, tangerine flavor. Bitterness and linger a bit strong.

Ratman197 (9061) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lingering off white head. Aromas of rye, earthiness and pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of rye, earthiness and light pine with a crisp dry lightly bitter lingering rye finish.

cbfobes (2155) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a dark amberish brown with a decent off white head, the aroma actually stinks like earth and dirt, really no hop presence at all, the flavor is of hold hops and is really skunky, really weird, not sure if this was a really old batch or what, but they took the earthyness to this brew just a little too far.

Chuckaduck (610) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Pours an off-orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma is spicy, sweet, sugary, some fruit, a little citrus. I can’t get a good handle on the aroma. Taste is odd. There’s a really aggressive leathery bitterness in back end which I can’t say that I enjoy. Some cream, earth, rye (but not the sort I enjoy). Woof! I may have gotten a bad bottle. This is not for me.

A not very rememberable ale, not terrible. There is little depth and balance to the citrus hop and rye characters. Very sweet, slightly bitter.
