From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a light crystal clear pale gold with a thick frothy white head. Malty nose. Flavors of straw with some mild hoppiness, producing a lingering bitter finish. Quite smooth and crisp.

legion242 (2193) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Poured a clear yellow with a frothy head. Nose was funky. Taste is neither real hoppy or does it have the maltiness of a bock. Sort of a mess.

thegreenrooster (3215) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pour is a clear golden with a average white head. Aroma is a nice mix of the rye malt and hops. Flavor is about the same. A nice spicy rye starts things out but after the swallow a decent bitter hop is left on the tongue. This was a nice rye-IPA style beer.

Draft at Beer Bistro. Thin head with attractive lacing action. Gold color just to the point of turning amber. Looks and tastes pretty malty, even chewy, without that much hop at the start. Halfway through the tulip glass, I start to pick up some of the European hop note, but it never gets overpowering. Then right at the end I caught a little bite of yeasty bock spice, a reminder that this is a style that can turn to bananas very easily. But this beer doesn’t.
