3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear light amber with a faint head. Slight hoppy aroma with a bit of grass. Clean taste with a hint of spice and rye; slight bitterness. Smooth overall with only a faint bitter aftertaste. Smoother and less powerful than other ryes Iíve tried. A bit unexpected as Iím used to ryes being more forceful, but the more restrained character is nice.

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 Iíd 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 donít 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. Didnít like it as much as the regular ipa MB had, but good. Nice rye tang to it.

Pours just like the picture. Smell is hoppy and fruity. Grassy notes, similar to an ipa. Tastes sweet, hoppy, bold, and full of rye. Pretty easy to drink. Good stuff that is in my standard rotation

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper with no head. Nose is a little fruity and floral, a touch of resin, and earthy bright malts. Bitter beginning with grassy acidic hops, spicy rye malts, and a doughy earthy blonde finish. Eh.
