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.

Great gold pour with a white head. Nose is grapefruit, bright hops and lots of Rye. Palate is thin, not sure where the hops went, Rye, bitter and an easy finish.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2015
[Tap] Deep golden color with a frothy head on top. Spicy aromas of rye malt and Noble hops. Notes of pine, biscuits, crisp rye, black pepper and floral flavors. Dry and light in body. Not super flavorful, but everything is well balanced and the rye notes are pleasant in this one.

Salmoniform (1229) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Slightly gazy straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is straw, peppercorn, tangerine, grapefruit. Mouthfeel is great with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a spicy hop bitterness and a peppercorn/rye finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

slowrunner77 (7284) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 26, 2014
"bright citrus, skunky hops and rye on the aroma, fruity and spicy flavor. goes down easy at 5.5% though the aromatics and flavor make you think you’re drinking an ipa. well done."

Block (1756) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Smooth, some creamy characteristics. Hoppy upfront, sweet body, a little bit of kick, maybe spice at the finish.

Dogbrick (9672) - 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.

Tide (2287) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2014
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.

Can from Rob - thanks! Pours a very slightly hazy dirty yellow with minimal head. Citrus and dank nose. Crisp lively palate - maybe a touch astringent late. Slight spice. Okay.
