COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with a generous amount of German Rye malt and an abundance of American hops, our ale embodies an earthly flavor and finishes with a hint of spice. This powerhouse of an ale excites even the most dormant of tastes buds.

Great newer canned APA. Rye adds some spice, but not overly so, just at end. Good value, will definitely have again.

Dogbrick (8023) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2014
On draught at Freshcraft. The beer is a hazy golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, malt and citrus. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, toasted malt and slight citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

Can from Hazel’s beverage world. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, rye, hops, pine and a bit of tropical fruits. Bitter finish with grapefruit, pine and hops. Good pale ale, although a bit one-dimensional in terms of flavors.

RABinCO (1274) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Can from Weber St. poured into a fluted glass. Pours hay, looks a bit like a pale lager. No real head. Aroma is spicy, floral, grassy, with a bit of cat pee. Taste is a bit thin, but pleasantly bitter, spicy, and citrusy. A bit earthy on the finish. Overall well-balanced. Would definitely drink this again.

rollinsr (383) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours golden with very little head. Aroma is an excellent blend of sweet sticky citrus hops. Flavor is more hoppy bitterness but ends a little too abruptly. This is still a very good beer that deserves a higher rating in my opinion.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 11/20
Steve_0 (2624) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle at Niko’s with friends. Pour is clear orange with a big white head and good lacing. Big weedy, ganja, garlicy, oniony, grassy, biscuity, and resinous aroma. Taste is heavy weed, garlic, onion, resin, and vanilla cake with a big bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty "meh" IPA but the garlic notes are a bit too overbearing.
