Pours murky lemon yellow with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, floral and lemon. Light sweet flavor that finishes bitter but still seems to balance. john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle. Golden in colour. Very bitter resinous hops, citrus grapefruit and pine dominate over sweet toffee malts. Distinctly spicy and peppery; also rather earthy. Very dry finish. Really an IPA made with rye malt. Decent. (2010-09)

12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours moderate hazy/cloudy golden amber/light orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops and moderate rye/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, honey, light caramel, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine/citrus peel bitterness and rye spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, peach, pineapple, citrus peel, pine, spicy rye, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate rye/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero lingering hop/rye astringency after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitter/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a great rye pale ale! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate rye/bready malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the balanced bitter/spicy flavors. Very bright on hop flavors with great rye malt balance. Still tastes pretty fresh despite no can dating. A really enjoyable offering. chucklemation (1798) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Pours a hazy light copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is rye, citrus, spice, and resin. Flavor is almost tart lemon, rye, and some resin. Has a nice, smooth body with plenty of carbonation and low bitterness. Solid. markas101 (2530) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Bottle, Biostation, Michigan. Hop aroma with some grain and honey. Full body, sweet and thick with a resin rye finish.

Golden with a nice white foam. Rye and grass aroma. Great flavors of spice and hop resins. Finish is slightly astringent. Art (3220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Can at bar in NYC. Yeah it seemed like a rye beer to me but it was so old that the hops had faded to a gross malt bomb. :( 60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Clear bronze pour, some headish. Watery aroma, rye, barley, resin hop, malt, pine and something a little sweet, thinking it’s the peach. Flavor is more mild and not as exciting. Bready and earthy with more pine and rye hop. A slight bitterness at the end plays with the fruit to make this beer almost memorable. Still not my favorite. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange-light brown color with a small white head. The aroma is full of hops and citrus. The taste is full on citrus, hops and rye. An excellent rye beer.
