COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Attacks your palate with a full on hop assault of Amarillo, Bravo and Centennial hops. 20% rye malt provides a spicy balance to the intense citrus notes, while a clean and dry finish begs another pint.

Floral and resiny hops abound in the aroma with a spicy rye and salt caramel aromas also..very nice. Good creamy caramel,spicy rye and earthy hops make the taste very good.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
on tap at the brewery Golden raisin color with brilliant clarity and little indication of carb. Nose is subtle with just a little grain and hints of grapefruit. Flavor is robust with bitterness balanced well with crystal malts and plenty of grapefruit and orange peel in the hop character. There is a touch of spice on the malt as well. Medium on full bodied with moderate carb and a dry finish. I can dig it.

Bomber. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A light earthy rye nose. The flavor is clear, rich spicy rye, caramel, lingering bitterness. Very good brew. The Amarillo adds a nice sweetness.

On tap at Lardo. Colour...hazy golden amber with a moderately thick white head. Nose...lightly spicy and hoppy with floral notes. Palate...a burst of grain up front to go with the foamy froth, then comes the rye spice followed by a wave of citrusy hops that longer nicely on the finish.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Tap at Three Creeks. Pours a low haze golden. Webby lacing. Nose is fresh citrus hops, fresh pale grist. Taste is husky, raw malt, big soap and huge harsh husky grain. Big IBUs donít have the malt balance to match. Still, probably the best beer on tap :/

Davidrbly (10) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Cloudy apricot color, almost like a hefeweizen. Aroma is citrus and a touch of yeast. Medium body with a slight slick feel to it. Citrusy bitter flavor, lasting into the aftertaste. Rye? Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle, brought back and shared by Grippitis. Hazy light amber, towering off white head. Heaps of rye character here, a nice compliment to the powerful citrus hops. Very tasty.

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 13, 2013
Draught at the brewery in Sisters, OR. Piney hop nose with some spiciness. Dark copper color. Good rounder flavors to start. Nice balance between sweet malt and rather rough bitterness. Medium body, a bit sticky. Good, substantial stuff. The high IBU and the rye complement each other well.

jgb9348 (4487) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Hazy orange tinted copper coloured body with a dense, four centimetre tall tan head - very nice and tons of movement from the bottom. Aroma of fresh hops, grapefruit, alcohol, a decent amount of malt and the slightest hint of rye - this one isnít too noticeable in the nose. Medium-bodied; Noticeable rye grain in the flavour with a bit of an earthy bite and a little herbal and grapefruity bitterness from the hops coupled with a little alcohol kick. Aftertaste shows a good sweetish flavour from caramel and toffee coupled with a pungent alcohol and rye bite at the end - very nice balance, better than most rye ipas Iíve had. Overall, a nice beer and one that should be sampled, especially if you like rye-based IPAs. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon (Pioneer Square) in Portland, Oregon on 27-April-2013 for US$4.09 sampled at home in Washington on 28-May-2013.
