22oz Bomber poured amber with a mostly lingering off-white head. Aroma consisted of rye, grapefruit and a hint of earthiness. It is a medium bodied brew with a crisp if not a dry finish. Flavors were subtle with surprising little hop; most notable was rye, earthiness, and pink grapefruit with a dry bitter lingering rye finish. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark reddish pour with nice fluffy off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, earth, some nuts, nice spice, lemon, grainy notes with a hint of floral and grassy notes coming in as well. Taste is a mix of caramel and toffee, some nice spicy and slightly lemon rye, mainly spice, yeast, some floral notes, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet and dries out well. Pretty tasty.

22oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 44°. Color is a deep dark amber with mellow carbonation and a small off white head. Aroma of spicy hops and peppery rye. It has a medium body with a crisp mouth feel. The rye comes out up front with pepper, then a touch of toffee, the hops give spice and a nice citrus. In the after taste a mild bitterness comes in and the spice lingers. Overall its a great brew with an easy drinking complex flavor palate. Beaver (1828) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2012

bottle. cola brown pour with a small and quickly subsiding tan head. faint nose of american hop grass / citrus swimming in an ocean of crystal and roast malt caramel / chocolate / toffee. small bit of honey and gum noticed as well. medium body is chewy and goopy while the carbonation is light and the acid mild; all-together it’s flabby and syrupy and falls apart as it moves across the middle. small touch of rye seed / bread character is overpowered by the gritty, earthy hop flavor and moderate bitterness. too many ingredients and none with any direction.

Bottle @ home. Pours a hazy, reddish brown appearance with a bubbly, light brown head. Very piney and especially floral hoppy, spicy, mild citrusy, herbal, toasty, rye malty aroma. Toasty, slightly caramelized, mild rye malty, herbal/soapy/floral hoppy flavor with mild citrus and pine notes. Somewhat spicy, floral finish. A touch chewy. Not bad but nothing special. onceblind (10290) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Tap at Brewery. Clear nutty red, small but laceful head. Smells remarkably just like rye bread, slightly toasted. Taste was toasty and bready with loads of rye tones, very not-subtle but that’s ok. Quiet bitterness until the finish when it becomes a little bigger, but the hoppiness isn’t very pronounced. It seems that all the bitterness comes from the rye, and there is much of it. It’s like the liquid version of toasted rye bread.
