(22oz bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of rye, roasted malt, earth, and woody notes. Flavor of rye, grass, caramel malt, and a splash of citrus. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2009
22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with GAManiac. Pours the color of sherry with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left considerable spotty lace. Pleasant aroma of rye grain, a bit of citrus, and a few notes of coffee, which surprised me. The flavor is again mostly rye grain followed by some fairly bitter grapefruit pith hops. A tad dry towards the finish as well. Nice solid beer. blutt59 (6573) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2009

Bottle at Andy’s tasting, I believe from Paul. Pours a clear amber with a light white head. Nice bright citrus hops and rye on the nose. Medium bodied with a good malty sweetness. Finishes with a good grapefruit bitterness and a touch of caramel.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a small, off-white head, hazed amber body with small particles. Aroma of coffee, rye, hops and a bit chalky. Taste is spicy and herbal with notes of coffee. Medium carbonation. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle: Rusty brownish orange pour with a dense tan head. The aroma is a mix of dark bready rye malts, light citrus and resiny hop character- nice. Creamy body- nice bready lightly sweet background meshes with resiny bitterness. Light grapefruit notes are there as well leading to a piny lingering finish. Solid.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with off-white head. Aroma of some bubble gum and some malt. Flavor is fruity, hoppy, with nice small bitter. Mouth feel is medium body with high carbonation. Over all, not bad, easy drinking and tasty! jrob21 (3760) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Amber clear color. Piny resiny sticky hops are pretty nice. Very impressed with the french broad guys as they can make a wide range of very drinkable and enjoyable beers. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2009
tap @ TacoMac, John’s Creek. Pours cloudy copper brown, light tan rocky head. Looks fresh. Tastes fresh. Aroma is a sweet caramel, nice rye, lots of malts in the nose. Nice scent of citrus and pine hops. Flavor has a nutty malt character, sharp and bold. very full flavored. Kinda what i expect in a rye ale (thanks to spike). Nice toasted notes. Then there are th hops. Yum. superb bitterness. lots of earthy bitterness from the abundance of hops. If this beer could be oaked... wow.
