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.

uoffgator (49) - Miami, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Beautiful head with an evident chill haze after pour. Very hopy with a surprisingly evident citrus bite. Aftertaste resonates of watered down and somewhat astringent taste.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
On tat at Elwoods Linclowood. Seemed old as the hops seemed to be dead. Pours a clear rusty amber with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of tangy malt, hops and lemon tea. Taste is much the same as the aroma with a spice

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2012
A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a nice smooth rye bread with floral hops, very nicely done. In mouth, a smooth nutty malt with piney hops, menthol notes, oily, nice and smooth. Bottle at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 21 2012.

Onslow (1410) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz b ottle. Orange amber brew with off white head. Nice aroma of malt, citrus and pine hops. Taste has a nice malt / rye profile with a fine and complex hoppiness kicking in at the end of the swallow. Average palate. Not an extreme IPA but an extremely tasty one.

Sammy (11251) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle fresh from Sprecher brewery. Floral hops, golden yellow body with a generous retained white creamy head. Average mouthfeel, with some astringency, but still a good drinker because of the edge and hop profile. Really bitter as the IBU 73 shows. Must try for hopheads and anyone a fan of the bitter or sour camp.

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Tap at the Sprecher tour/reserve tasting. Amber pour with a big clingy white head. Aroma of citrus hop and earth. Medium palate. Big citrus, earth, and rye taste, although it was a bit astringent. Paired with a monterrey jack cheese with morels and leeks - good combo.
