COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The combination of malts complement the generous amount of late-addition American hops, creating a perfect balance between the earthiness of the rye and the resinous hoppy aroma.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Bottle. Clear brown/amber. Aroma is spiced rye malt, with toast. The taste adds caramel, very very light roasted malt, and an earthy hop balance on the finish. Light easy mouthfeel with perfect hop resins. Good stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap in a shaker. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, some light rye/spiciness, pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, worth trying if you’re at some bar with a not so great selection.

Picked this up in Wells, ME on a recent trip. One of the best among the many new rye beers coming into the market in recent years. Wish it were more than a seasonal as I love the mix of spicy rye with plenty of hops that hit my taste buds from the very first pour. Glad I purchased a 6-pack rather than just an individual bottle - it was a gamble that paid off for me..

Yet another one on tap at Battleship. Pours a dark brown amber color. Aroma is of hops, grass, spices, and yeast. Flavor a little roasty rye (if you can imagine that), malts, earthiness and hops. Medium bodied. Lightly resinous on the finish. Good one for the changing season.

Draft in a mason jar at Community Oven. Nose is spicy rye, caramel malts and stale bread crust. Flavor starts with Citrus orange, floral hops, and a strong amount of spicy rye. Body is lots of grain. As it warmed up pine comes through in the finish. This beer is hop forward and should be received well. Something about the rye and pine didn’t sit well with me. Perhaps it was the pizza I was eating. I used to really like this brewery and it’s nice to see something new from them.

Nice hoppy with grapefruit and pine. Pours dark brown with good creamy head and lacing. Finishes with some bitterness and a little sourness even. Rye adds great malt. Soft carbonation.

On tap @ Community Oven, which is next door to the Blue Lobster tasting room. Pours a light amber brown, to the clear side, with a thin off white head. Rye bread aroma with a pretty strong hop scent. Lots of hops in the flavor as well, with rye spice. Average in body with a smooth feel. Interesting brew.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is cloudy but the color is medium to darker amber with a small off-white head. The description says this is "stoked with hops," and that is true. Instead of rye and grains that one expects from this style you get a full floral hoppiness. Medium body. The taste does have a little but of the rye and grain but like the aroma it is the hop bitterness that takes over and lingers toward the end.
