COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewers used a variety of malted grains, including copious amounts of München and rye malts, to craft a solid foundation for the beer, and then tossed in flavorful American hops by the bucketload (Northern Brewer, Centennial, Cascade & Chinook).

BeerandBlues2 (9356) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a large, frothy light tan head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is light fresh apple and pear esters, faint apricot notes with pine, citrus, and floral hops, background notes of spicy rye and cracker malt. Flavor is medium to moderate hops, medium bitterness with the spicy rye accentuating this a bit, lightly sweet supporting malt with faint fruity esters late, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of shoe polish and black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Twisted Pine and Bristol should really do a collaboration.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Sampled on 10/9/2012. This rye beer pours a dark amber brown color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. with nice lacing. The aroma is caramel, fruity and spicy, with some rye and some hops. A medium to full bodied rye beer. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are piney and citrusy. Decent carbonation. Nice rye spiciness and a fairly sweet malty finish. There are some fairly aggressive hops as well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is mostly bitter, with some sweet malts.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Sweet up front, which is kinda odd. Usually a beer hits you with hops, then a sweet part, then a sweet finish, but this one is more sweetish, the a subtle hop bite, and a very dry finish. Nice mix of caramel and molasses and rye, and grassy hops.

nick76 (4170) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2013
The aroma is quite hoppy with pine and citrus with rye and paper. The appearance is deep amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is an average beer.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2012
On hand at Denver Summer Brew Fest 2012. Clear dark amber with a light nutty-hued head. Nose is pretty earthy with accompanying tones of caramel and gym shorts, and dank rye. Taste has a lot of earthy rye and dank burnt caramel with a light herbal bitterness. Meh.
