Draft to taster at French Broad during RBWG. Looks good; a transparent copperish orange with fomy off-white head and lively carbonation. Smells of bitter hops and rye spice with a fairly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

On tap @ French Broad. Pours a dark orange appearance with a dark golden appearance with a white head. Light citrus and spicy rye in the nose. High bitterness. Lots of rye and grainy notes. OK.

Taster on tap at the brewery. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head, decent dots of lace. Good, citrusy hop, and bigger spicy rye notes. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Moderate bitter taste, a hint of citrus zest, light sweet. Very nice rye pale ale. Great, smooth, crisp texture to it. Easy drinking stuff, but satisfyingly flavorful.

It poured a dark orange color with a small white head. The aroma was of rye, spiciness, tart grapefruit and caramel malt. The taste was of rye bread throughout with malts and grapefruit hops. Nice.
