2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours mildly murky, orange-golden color with an ample, fairly well-retaining eggshell colored head. Pleasant sweet citrus nose with some depth set off by the rye. Powdery texture becoming increasingly astringent. Flavor falls a little flat. Particularly, for a rye. Biscuit and some mild citrus. The citrus becomes bitter at the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours clear gold/orange with slight head. Aroma is pineapple, fresh cut grass, orange. Taste is definitely malt-centric...rye comes in aggressively. Not enough sweetness to balance the strong rye presence. Lots of earthy/grassy flavors at play with nothing to balance.

Bottle into a tulip glass. Pour is a haze orange. Aroma is of citrus and grass. Taste is a crisp malt with a front end hoppy wash. Finish is clean.

12 ounce bottle. Slightly hazy yellow gold color with a small rocky white head. Aroma is sweet grainy malt with hints of rye. Flavor is more grainy rye malt with notes of citrus and bitter hops. Smooth and well balanced. Very nicely done. Very drinkable.

4/18/14. Draft at Bull McCabes. Pours golden amber with thin head. Nice hoppy nose. They've done a great job using the rye the build out the mouth on an otherwise sessiony ale. Nice hop and malt balance. Very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good powerful pale ale. Noticeable hops and rye aroma. Good deep amber color with a decent white head. Great full mouthfeel with some weight without being heavy. Good carbonation. Flavors were balanced and smooth. It leaned toward the IPA side a bit with the rye adding a spicy character. Nice drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: amber orange, short light beige head. Aroma: peppery rye, juicy citrus, caramel, light herb. Taste: starts with a slightly sweet dose of caramel and caraway, giving way to bright citrus, cool pine, and earth. Finish: dry and delicately bitter, with a nice waft of rye heat to cleanse the mouth for the next sip. Notes: I’m a huge fan of rye beers, and I liked the balance of this one quite a bit. Would drink again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle best by 2/7/14 (whoops) poured into shaker. Hazy amber honey color with a two-finger foamy white cap. Head retention and lacing are both minimal, but carbonation is impressive. Aroma is spicy rye, pepper and fruit (mango maybe?). Flavor starts out as snappy rye transitioning into a citrusy middle and a very clean finish. Another winner from Terrapin.
