Hancock Tower, Chicago. Clear golden color, thin white head. Citric hop aroma. Balanced hoppy flavor with a dry finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not bad by itself, but an excellent pairing with brie cheese!
12oz can. Unfiltered bright orange-tan body. Steady foamy white head. A lot of Rye in the aroma, coupled with some earthy lemony hops. Brighter than most Rye beers, but kind of odd and unenjoyable still. Sticky sweet tones all over the place. I am really not fond of Rye 90% of the time. Kind of gross, not off, just not enjoyable at all. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
12 oz can from my buddy czar, thanks mate. Pours a slightly veiled golden-straw with a thick, resilient white head. Aroma is dry potato, peppercorn, dust. Flavor is spicy, fruity, cereals, pepper. Finish is very spicy, pepper, mint, some herbs. A tad bit lemony, too. Medium body, average carbonation. BillWyce (1074) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours hazy golden color with a 1-finger off-white head. Mild citrus hops aroma mixed with a peppery, grassy rye note. Body is medium and a touch oily. Brief, mildly dry finish. Grassy flavor mixed wit grapefruit hops. A peppery rye note at the back. trapped (3097) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 17, 2014

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a nice golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades rather fast leaving a decent leave of foam on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with some hints of a mainly a bready smell along with a bit of a citrus hoppy smell. Some other light peppery rye smalls are there as well with just a hint of pine.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and light rye taste mixed with a tangerine sweetness and some grapefruit upfront. There is a little bit of caramel that is later lost as it is buried by more citrus tangerine and grapefruit hop. All the while the rye builds a bit with it bringing along with it some lighter hop flavors of pine. In the end, with the bittering of the grapefruit hop and the moderateness of the rye flavors, one is left with a somewhat moderately fruity, bready rye, and decently bittered grapefruit hop taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. Both are rather nice for the mix of rye bread flavors as well as the hops and makes for a nice easy drinker.
Overall – A rather easy drinking sweeter and more moderate rye brew. A nice one to try if you get a chance. Weevo (175) - Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2014
