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.

BeerandBlues2 (12100) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Can at home. Pours lightly hazy pale orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention leaving a thin film and light lacing. Aroma is heavy hop bouquet (floral, herbal, pine) and medium spicy and earthy rye malt. Flavor is heavy citrus, resin and pine hops and bitterness, somewhat pithy with medium earthy and spicy malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

RSRIZZO (1949) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2016
12oz can (courtesy of neighbor Bob) poured into a Shaker at 43°. Color is a bright gold with light carbonation and a thin tight white head. Aroma is strong pine sap and grape fruit resin. It has a lighter medium body with a light mouth feel. Flavor is rye, corn and grapefruit zest. After taste is dry with the rye giving a nice pepper taste. Overall its a nice easy drinking brew, would be good to have around on a hot summer day.

StefanSD (2370) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Draft at O’Briens pub in Ouray. Golden with a small white head. Aroma of fruits that I just can’t place. Tastes spicy with bitter herbs, grapefruit and some tannins. Malt base was a bit bready like a Jewish Rye, Palate is medium, finishes long and dry. Overall: nice APA.

ben4321 (5688) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2015
12 oz can from Whole Foods Wine and Spirits in Boulder, 11/24/15. It pours a mostly clear golden color with a thin white head that leave a coat of spotty lacework. The aroma is citrus / grapefruit hops, some rye bread spice, and a bit of pine as well. Nice hoppy flavor profile with a good rye malt backbone. Clean and decently bitter, not over the top, but well balanced and very enjoyable. Light-medium bodied, crisp and dryish on the close.

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.

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.
