j12601 (7350) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Max at a tasting at Paul’s. Pours a lightly hazed ruby amber with a medium sized off white head. Musky right away on the nose, soft yeast and wheat sweetness. Medium bodied, sweet and touches of caramel. Musky, a bit more light bitterness, touches of yeast. Easy drinking.

Braudog (5962) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a nice dark bronze with an average head. The aroma is mellow yet enticing. This drinks very nicely with a pleasantly rolling pale ale character, bringing an added extra gristy spice that I like to get from a good rye. Nice. (#4689, 7/9/2012)

Nephilium (1459) - Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Big blast of rye aromas, with a hint of lemon. Pours a reddish-amber, with a full white head. Nice and chewy mouthfeel, with a lot of spice notes from the rye. Finishes with a bit of roasted notes. This is a nice solid Rye beer, especially at under $4 a bomber.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Crazy how many new beers Epic keeps pumping out. There always seems to be a new one on the shelf. Handsome amber pour, not too much going on appearance-wise though it looks earthy and inviting enough. Nose was moderately floral and had just the faintest hint of spice to it, with leafy hops coming on as the beer opens up. Mouthfeel was medium, modestly spicy palate. The flavors overall were extremely understated, giving the impression that this is basically a moderately tweaked APA more than anything else. Certainly not too much rye that I can taste. Okay.
