Beer of the month club bottle. Pours cloudy light orange with a tiny white head. Aroma of orange peel, honey, pine, and a hint of spice. Flavor is strong orange zest with a spicy rye tone. Some nice bitter bite, and dry rye finish. Light mouthfeel and pretty drinkable as I have found with other Sweetwater pales. Good beer.

Strong aroma with many different smells present. Excellent taster, very flavorful with a strong malt flavor. It has a light, copper color.

12 ounce from Ale Yeah. Nice malty rye. Hoppy and slightly musty. Really clean body and very drinkable.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2013
From bottle. Medium fruity hop aroma and a little spicy rye character. Medium golden amber clear with mild haze, topped with rocky-foamy white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Solid IPA, mild malt sweetness with a light rye spicy note. Good fruity hop flavor with medium bitter finish and lingering bitter after.

Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours a pale orange with a white spongey head leaving a bit of lacing. Aroma has fresh fruit and pine. Sweet hoppy and fairly subtle. Taste is of sweet fruits, pine and some citrus. Very faint caramel underneath, but this brew is about the hops. Medium bodied and somewhat sticky and quite dry -- only real indication of rye presence. Finishes bittersweet although fairly short. A tasty, solid IPA, that is a bit muted likely due to the rye.

12 oz bottle. BB 11/21/13. (Midtown Wine) Nashville, TN.
Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Sweetish intense fruity hops, exotic fruits, malt and nice mild bitterness in a delicious aroma. Mild bitterness, fruity and piney hops and strong malt in the balanced flavour. Smooth! Good IPA.

Westmeister (1524) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Draft from Taco Mac Cumming. Pours a clear golden color with medium white head and decent lacing. Smell is light citrus, but does not bring the expected big rye spiciness that I would expect from a rye brew. Which in my opinion is not a horrible thing. There is also a pleasant sweet malt aspect. Taste is again mild citrus with just a hint of the rye edginess, but really comes out as a clean crisp and refreshing brew. The rye doesn’t really shine, but this turns out to make it a really nice summer drinker. Quite different from its Georgia breathren at Terrapin.

pnesbit (79) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle pour of a gold copper with a nice off white head that leaves a little lace. Aroma of forward grapefruit hops some lemon zest and rye spice. Taste of more hops and a big rye spice and slight caramel malt with a alight citrus finish. Med body with a nice spicy finish with a Slight citrus. Over all well balanced beer with a great spin on the normal ipa with rye spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Omni Hotel at CNN Cener in Atlanta, GA. Lightly hazy, nearly clear amber-orange with white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, rye spice, pine and biscuit malt.
