Rye lends spiciness to the caramel-malt base, while creating a creamy texture. Dry-hopping contributes a fresh citrus finish. Pairings: blue cheese, blackened seafood, herb-roasted poultry.

Draft at mudville9 NYC. Pours a rye brown color with a nice spices taste. Hoppy and malt balance. Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bomber. Pours a nice clear ruby gold with a thin white head. Head seems to fade to a film, and hang out on the beer all the time. The scent is pretty bland. Hints of rye and citrus, but seems to come across very, very sweet. The taste is very sweet on the front. It fades into a bit of the citrus tone, and eventually into the rye with a touch of hops. The finish is definitely not as good as I'd expect. For a rye, it's decent, but there is a lot to be desired ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a nice rye beer. Nice bitterness from the Rye and hops, good malt flavor. Not as good as Hoss, but a good beer.

Amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is reminiscent of rye bread and pine hops. Flavor is like a mild rye bread with resinous hop notes. Pleasantly bitter finish. Wife: 3.3

ben4321 (3827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow, 8/9/13

Aroma: The nose has caramel malt, rye bread, a little spice, and some citrus
Appearance: It pours a clear amber-orange color with sheety beige head and lace
Flavor: The flavor has a nice balance between sweet and hoppy, with plenty of rye and spice
Palate: The body is medium, it has a little stickiness, soft carbonation, and a dryish finish
Overall Impression: I found this to be a really nice example of a Rye PA. Quite tasty. I thought the components were all nicely in balance.

bottle. Amber with one finger head. Hatter IPA with rye added. Not bad, but I’d probably prefer the original version instead.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Rated on 6-12-2013 @ 800 Degrees (Fort Wayne, IN). This draft beer pours a small ivory head that was fully lasting, transparent body, one ring of lacing, fast rising carbonation, and a golden hue. The Aroma is malty, caramel, rye, pine and citrus hops, and lightly spicy. This beer taste semi-sweet, bitter, malty, caramel, pine and citrus hops, and lightly spicy. The Palate is creamy and this is a light-medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer is quaffable and worth trying.

Two dollar bomber, CLICK. Faintly oily looking deep orange pour, medium carbonation and lacing. Soft floral hops initially in the nose, followed fast by spicy rye. Caramel malts detectable, suggesting balance. Light, playful mouthfeel brings out the spice and hops a bit, but the balance isn’t there quite so much in the taste. Very malty, tilting precipitously into sweetness in a way that suggests (as if the price tag didn’t) a good bit of age. Not bad, I guess.
