On tap at blue monk. Pours ambet tam capped by a silkey off white head. Nose of rye, malt, an pine. Taste starts with dry and spicey rye that transforms into sweet caramel. Finish is bitter with pine resin. Yum!

Bulk_Carrier (2575) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2015
On tap at the Olde Lincoln House, Ephrata, PA. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy bronzed golden orange color with a slim bar pourís kind of white head that dissipated gracefully. The smell started with a slight rye malt gracefully blending with a grassy to light citrus hoppiness. The taste blended the spicy rye with the grassy to citrus hop. A light semi-crisp spice to citrus aftertaste leads to a semi-wet citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonated definitely as an AIPA, the bitterness invades and punches my tongue appropriately. Overall, this was a good AIPA with the rye malt to accompany a nice spice. I would definitely have again.

Bottle. Bright orange-copper color with off-white head and substantial lacing. Spice, pepper, orange, grapefruit, and malt flavor. Solid malt backbone with citrus (orange and grapefruit) and pine notes. Rye spiciness throughout, especially in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at lady gregoryís. Dark yellow with red tones. Amber. Huge fluffy head. Heavily carbonated. Not too much aroma with all of the head on top, Iíll revisit this later in the tasting. Sharp clean hop bite. The bitterness is real on this, and I love that. Itís hard to isolate the flavors. Some citrus with lots of pine. Bitter finish. Really no nose throughout which is the only downside I can come up with. Iíll drink this again.

kramer (5346) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper body with a small one finger tight bubbled beige head. The nose is really spicy with the rye, backed up by a hefty citrusy hoppiness and minimal malt. If smells pretty delicious. The flavor is plenty spicy from the rye, big thereís an overly heavy caramel sweetness below it thatís a bit of a turn off for me. Finishes pretty nice, with a bright and bitter hop bite. Medium bodied and fizzy with a lingering finish. Decent stuff, but a little too sweet.

Krej (153) - USA - MAY 7, 2015
This is alright but not very ryey. Not my favorite rye beer but itís still pretty good. Thatís all there is to say really.

Clear orangish-golden body with thin white head. Some lacing. Massive juicy citrus aromas with melon and fresh grass scents. Tastes of grapefruit, ripe peach, tangerine, and prickly pepper notes. The rye malts perfectly balance the abundant hops producing a mellow smooth finish.

Grass and soil nose, not strong. Cloudy copper, full of fine floaties, medium yellow head, nice glass adherence. Sweet curacao, malt. Orange peel finish. Medium body, easy carbonation, warm. Good bitterness, but unusually sweet on the front end.
