A slight brown tint with a creamy head, this beer has a nice aroma of citrus and spice but not bold. Very nice body lends itself to the spicy rye flavors. Hops balance pretty well and the finish has a tannic like finish.

Tap at Sweetwater in ATL airport, just not that good, a little spice of rye a little kick of hops but nothing to make me want to drink more of this.

Might be a bit jaded this is always available, loads of malts some tropic citrus and loads of fruityness which turns into bitterness. Good beer

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange/gold with nice frothy head. Good head retention, too. Aroma is bright citrus - tangerine, grapefruit, melon, some orange. Taste is distinct rye, some sweetness from the malt, good pine/resin characteristics (though not as distinct as I’d prefer), and some more citrus notes. I get tangerine quite clearly here. Decent IPA and good incorporation of rye.

Bottle strangely enough from the Gatlinburg Walgreens. Overall a fairly muted beer. Neither the hops nor the rye had a big bite. Good but maybe it sat a little too long too based on store turnover.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle at the Renaissance Waverly bar, 3/17/14
Aroma: The aroma is caramel malt and rye bread, a little grapefruit, spice, and a floral hops
Appearance: It pours a copper color with a small, frothy head, and some decent lace on it
Flavor: The flavor is similar to the nose, caramel/rye, light sweet, grapefruit/spice light bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, a touch thin, with a plus carbonation and a spice tingle
I thought this one was only okay. The hops just don’t come through in a meaningful enough manner, and the overall beer is just kind of on the dull side.

Draft - Huge grapefruit with a nice caramel backbone. Little beige heat and a clear copper. Lots of caramel and grapefruit, with a hint of the rye spice. More sweet than bitter but nice.

On tap at the Atlanta airport. Good beer. Didn’t like it as much as the regular ipa MB had, but good. Nice rye tang to it.
