Bottle. Pours a medium gold with a fizzy white head and aromas tropical fruit and pine hops, a bit of rye and pear/honey sweetness. Flavor is a very nice mix of honey and pine and mango. There is a bit of a skunky hops that comes out in the finish from time to time, but it is a pretty minor flaw. dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle. When I first cracked opened this bottle I smelled an IPA. Poured a hazy orangish color with a pillowly white head. Left some lacing as it went. Aroma was pine,citrus, and earthy notes. Flavor was grass, citrus, and pine. Finished long and strong. I love this beer. Can you get it in 6 packs? I have only seen this in the sampler packs. Very good.

Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma is dominated by the rye. Taste is rye, light hops, light cabonation, quite tasty. Nice lacing and aftertaste gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2010
The nice frothy head with a golden orange looking beer underneath sets the stage for a nice drink. No real overwhelming aroma but pleasant. A good amount of bitter hops but nothing overpowering. I got a hint of caramel and orange sweetness but could not detect the rye. This beer is flat out pleasant to drink. It is just too tasty to have with food, a bit too strong as a session beer, but not to overwhelming to sit down with a few. revoke (10) - Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2010
I just can’t seem to win with Arcadia. I had a great sample of this on draft at Ashley’s in Westland, MI. I thought it would be good in bottles. Once again (3rd different beer from Arcadia), it tasted bitter and skunked from bottles. The draft version has that unique rye-beer flavor and a nice thick texture. It bottles I thought it was a completely different beer... I almost like drinking a rotten grapefruit. I’d go for Red’s Rye from Founders instead (if you have to do bottles). On tap, if you can find it, Sky High might be worth a try.

A hazy orange pour with minimal white head. A nice aroma of bready malt mixed with citrus and floral hops. A semi-sweet taste with some lemon followed by a very dry, bitter finish that is long-lasting. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2010

This was a pretty good and flavorful Rye Ale. Being a fan of this style beer i was excited to try this beer and it didn’t disappoint. The only negative thing i can say about this beer was it was a little thicker than i would have liked. msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2010
Bomber from Binny’s Des Plaines. Pours hazy yellow gold with white head. Aromas of hops, citrus, rye, and some wheat. Flavors of rye, citrus, and bitter malts. Basically a pale ale with a bunch of rye. Finishes bitter. Decent ale but not really my thing. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2010
This poured a cloudy light orange color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma was rye, light bittering and citrus hops. Flavor was a nice blend of malty sweetness, rye and mellow hops, also seemed a bit wheaty and yeasty as well. A nice little surprise to me.
