Draft at taproom. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Massive rye notes on the nose. Massive spicy rye on the tongue combined nicely with some grapefruit style hops which are quite flavorful. Finished clean. Nice example of style.

Can--pours a deep amber color with a medium, off white, frothy head that leaves some lacing. Aroma mostly of wet pine with lemon, the aroma was fresh like you would find in a brewery. The taste starts with the hops and follows with malt and some spice on the end. Moderate bitterness on the finish. Bruisin Ales drfabulous (7948) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 20, 2015

Can from tasty beverage Raleigh. Pretty large head when poured. Light copper color. Nice beer but a bit different than expected. More of a melon hop forward taste with just a hint of rye on the very backend. As an IPA it is quite good. Tasted of melon, Meyer lemons and a bit of an herb somewhere in there. Tasty for sure.

A decent rye, nothing to write home about. Pours a nice red with a white head. Smells of rye and grapefruit. Taste is mostly rye, with a bit of orange. Had on tap at the brewery. islay (2764) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2015
16 oz. can, consumed on 10-24-15. Pours a clear (although with haze in the final pour), dark amber with a large amount of thick, creamy, uneven, taupe head. Produces good, long-lasting, thick lacing. Has a leather-like appearance. Very good looking beer. Powerful, herbal, gym bag aroma from the hops (in a good way). Scents of blueberry, pine, weed, lemon rind, and dirt. Fresh smell. Flavor matches the aroma but more subdued. Cracker, soft pretzel, and rye bread flavors from the malt. Rye earthiness in the taste: Dirt, rocks, mud. Mint (think mint toothpaste). Dry, lightly spicy, ryed finish and aftertaste. In the aroma, the hops are first and foremost. In the flavor, the rye malt dominates. I’ve noticed that North Carolina brewers love their “West Coast” IPAs, but this one adds an Appalachian earthiness that combines with the West Coast pine and weed that make this beer fit the Asheville stereotype well. Medium body. Soft in the palate. I think a crisper, sharper palate would have better suited the flavors of this beer, but I can’t complain about the palate in its own right. Overall, a good, likable, and even memorable although not special beer. kathouse (1893) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Deep Amber and a cream colored foam. Rye in this beer is very aggressive. Spice is overpowering and throws off balance. Not a favorite.
