651 ml. bottle. Vintage 2014. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, dark amber (SRM 15) body......nose is grapefruit peel, rye spice, light toffee/caramel....taste is slightly floral sweet, with toffee/caramel hints, orange peel, cereal malts, rye spice, becoming dry, finishing with a moderate hop bitterness, balance to the malts.....mouth feel, light of medium body, with slight watery notes, no alcohol, tingling creamy carbonation, with light acid finish. This is a delicately balanced beer with rye, malts and hops all playing a role. As a Pale Ale it is a bit too low on hop dominance, but with the added rye, it takes on nice complexity in both aromas and flavors. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

rondphoto (2288) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 26, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Nearly clear dark amber with a frothy beige head that rapidly drops to a cover, bands of lace. Sharp aroma of malt and bitter. Taste is nicely mixed sweet malt and bitter rye that move smartly through the palate to an edgy citrus bittering in a lingering finish. A pretty solid brew, worth searching out. Recommended.

onceblind (4577) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Clear copper like a fresh penny, with a medium rocky beige head. Lovely nose of spicy bread dough, pepper, caramel, and a dry-hopped orange citrus tone. Lovely flavor too, with some spicy rye malt mixing with a fresh leafy grassy bitterness and a orange rind bitter hop flavour. Nice hoppy yet smooth caramalt and rye undertone to sweeten. Flavorful and unique.

I pry the cap off my rye ale. I spy a copper beer and my eye detects a shy white head. As it draws nigh, a subtle but spry aroma cannot be denied. I cry with delight at the chai-like supply of flavors. Finishes dry. Oops, spilled some on my thigh, sigh. Bye.

Bomber. Spicy rye aroma with notes of hops and a bit of caramel malt. Pours cloudy copper colored with a big, soapy tan head and excellent lacing. Starts with sweet caramel flavor with a very smooth mouth feel. Finishes dry with spicy rye as well as piney hop flavors. Good, but I liked their others better.
