Murky hazy dark amberish copper with a thick foamy off cream head. Nice doughy and earthy rye malt nose with a citrusy leafy hop tone. Lovely flavor of a clean rye doughy malt with some balanced bitter leafy hop tones and a kiss of citrus rind. Nuanced and full and tasty. And there’s a touch of black roast malt on the finish.

Bottle from the brewery. Pours a nice dark bronze with an average head. The aroma is mellow yet enticing. This drinks very nicely with a pleasantly rolling pale ale character, bringing an added extra gristy spice that I like to get from a good rye. Nice. (#4689, 7/9/2012)

Nice beer. Great aroma, like the deScription - rye bread with a hint of lemon. Flavor’s like nose, bittersweet. Very drinkable.

Had this at the 2012 Twin Cities Beer Festival. Nice rye/wood/barrel scents, had a nice sweet taste.

maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours an orange-copper color with almost no head. Lots of hoppiness to the nose with a hint of floral notes underneath. Tastes almost like an IPA, though with a different note from the rye in there. A really interesting drink!

3.8
nealblind (1965) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 23, 2014
Mid brown pour some soapy bubbles. Aroma is slight choco, toast, slight tang, beany. Full grainy flavor, spice, peachy hop flavor. A bit slimy watery and dry palate.

Another good beer from Epic. Pours a dark creamy amber nice aroma you don’t need to like rye bread to enjoy this one. Would recommend.

ah ha! first! Must have just put in cold case lucky me. Pours a nice coppery bronze color off-white copper head with nice lacing. Nose is bready sweet and spicy. The drink is a nice spicy rye lemony breadiness, not rye overpowering, light and crisp taste I found somewhat refreshing. Will buy/drink again.
