Good use of the spicy rye flavor with a nice hop finish. Above average pale ale overall.

12 oz. bottle. Amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus, spice and fruit. Taste is considerably more malty than the aroma. Spice, caramel, some citrus, light pine, and a nice biting finish from the rye. Decent.

Poured a nice amber color with a small head. Smooth for an IPA with no heavy after taste. Wife shrugged when she tasted it which is different from her usual scowl when tasting an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: hazy translucent pale amber with one finger of creamy light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone and tropical fruit, earthy rye, bready malt, light citrus and floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body , moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter and mildly spicy finish. (3/5)
Nice - there’s a definite rye presence that’s very well integrated with the IPA bitterness, such that neither really dominates. Certainly it’s not as heavy-handed or spicy as some rye ales I’ve had. I’m not saying there’s necessarily anything wrong with a spicy rye beer, but this different, more subtle approach makes for an interesting change. Nothing earth-shattering but a nicely quaffable rye. (14/20)

Originally rated on 4/2/08. Never had a rye ale before but it was fairly decent, copper-tanish color. rye and malt scented and flavored, has a little bite to it. I Will probably buy it again.

12oz Flasche. Das Foto hier zeigt das falsche Bier. Hellbraunes Bier. Kräftig fruchtiges Aroma mit Roggen und Sauerteig Noten. Geschmack nach Krustenbrot und bitterer Frucht.

Bottle. Thanks, Nate. Big citrusy, full, and mildy stinky nose. Medium copper color. Light caramel initial flavors, with some peppery rye in mid palate (a light burn), nice late balance. Fruity and flowery from id palate onwards. Thin-medium body. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the local H.E.B. Copper color with some mild head retention. Aroma is a nice amount of fruit and mild hints of spicy rye.
Flavor is a very nice balance of rye malt and nice fruity and floral hops. The balance is really nice here. Seriously, very nice medium body with a mild level of carbonation that gives a smooth texture. And with the 5.6 % it just flys down the throat. Nicely crafted.
