COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Iím going to grab a $1.99 bomber of almost any beer I havenít tried, natch. This one poured a hazy bright amber with a generous white head and decent enough lacing. Nose is dusty hops, citrus, rye bread. Generous malt. Taste is quite bitter, almost spicy, so lots of hops, but also a shit-ton of malt. A fight between a bready, malty rye beer and an IPA. Bitter, dry finish. Almost really good but misses the mark.

Large white head with nice amber body and medium amounts of lacing. Aroma of bread and biscuits with hints of citrus. Flavor has hint of sweetness mixed with malty citrus notes. Very balanced finish, nice beer.

Hazy dark amber beer. Massive fluffy off white head. Light palate, crispy. Seltzer minerals - bitter. Orange citrus and a trace of creamy malt and rye spice. Semi dry finish. Nice but a bit too similar to the Farmhouse IPA.

Malty caramel sweetness is combined with a bit of pine and citrus zest. Crisp finish with a bit of hops bitterness. Interesting.

Draft poured into a giant goblet. Not bad. Lots of rye bread and a little spicy hops. Something is just missing here. It just didnít really do it for me.

Poured into a perfect pint. 4.0 A: Moderately hazed orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is pretty good and tons of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Citrusy hops with emphasis on orange, mango, and papaya. Caramel sweetness to accompany the bready maltiness. Not a whole lot of rye in the nose, but enough to add a touch of earthy spiciness. Earthy hoppiness secondary to the citrus and herbal underneath that. Equivalent balance between malts and hops. Good. 3.5 T: Again equal balance between hops and malts. Citrusy orange and mango with earthy undertones. Mild bitterness. Caramel sweetness with breadiness from the malts and yeast. Rye is more apparent in the taste giving the earthy spiciness that it does. Again, good. 4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess and quite smooth. 3.5 D: Quality beer with no real faults, but not really that impressive. I think more rye would have given this more of an edge over a standard IPA.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. SLightly cloudy amber ale with generous and persistent head. aroma a spice, citrus and flora hops. Taste is mild malt, crisp hops up front, lingering slightly citrus finish. Well balanced but still distinctive.

BMMillsy (1150) - Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 This would not stop foaming and overflowing from the bottle. Pours dark reddish. Smell is funky an spicy. Simething off about thr flavor without much hop bitterness. Not a huge fan of this one. Seems muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
