Pours a clear amber/caramel with a medium off white head. Aromas very caramely with mild earthy/rye spice. Flavor follows suit...caramely sweet and doughy but earthy bitterness too. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/rye and bitter/dry.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 07/25/12 Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep amber color with a small, but well sustained head of white foam. The nose has a deep fruitiness with a touch of spicy rye. Slight pine and a touch of plastic. The flavor has a touch of caramel, some earthy pine, and a slight twist of rye. None of the flavors are vibrant and it’s a little lifeless on the tongue. Not bad per se, but lacking personality. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a dull finish. Rather forgettable unfortunately. Update: 01/27/13. 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans. The new label fooled me into thinking I hadn’t had it. Let’s give it another go. Appearance is the same. Nose is light white pine needle and spruce notes with a bread and cracker backdrop. The flavor strikes a nice balance with just enough malt balance and solid hop bitterness the whole way through. Solid pine and resin notes up front, nice herbal punch in the middle with just a hint of mint on the back end. Light toast and rye cracker from the malt side. Definitely better than the first time.

Brown gold pour. no head. Nice level of pepper, honey and hops on the nose. Taste is very chewy up front. The rye dominates and hops balance out the middle. Caramel at the finish.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 1, 2012
tap at 1702 Tucson, AZ-pours bright clear orange with a small soapy eggshel head. nose is bright citrus and rye. flavors exhibit the rye more than the hops. this is kind of wierd and not really all that well put together. ok body with a long rye dry finish. a intersting brew but lacks much hops. Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye is way better if you ask me. Maybe i should have had more samples of this brew.

Palidor19 (3036) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2013
solid beer all the way worth a nice balance between the hops and malts. the bitterness packs a small punch with just enough room left over for noticeable malts.

alobar (2991) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with a white soapy head. Minimal aroma of bread and yeast. Bread, yeast, hops at the backend for flavor. Good bitter ending. Very nice.

jandd1983 (2986) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2013
It poured a cloudy amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of pine and some grapefruit. It had a medium mouthfeel with some pine hops and a nice lingering bitter finish. A good IPA.
