COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a black as night hoppy American ale with hints of pine needles, roasty malt, and spicy green peppercorns. It is brewed with 8% malted German rye and bittered with Magnum and Columbus hops with Simcoe and Amarillo hops used for flavor and aroma. At 5% alcohol it is a sessionable but full-bodied brew.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Tap at the brewery in Jax. Poured a hazy, muddy, deep ruby to brown with really no head or lace. Nose is cafe latte, milk chocolate. Taste is rich, heavy roasted malt, toast, pumpernickel. Pretty raw and sharp body. Excellent bittering hops. Far better palate than the other offerings. Also for an FYI, 8% rye will never create a rye flavor in beer. Rye is extremely subtle and would need 30% at least to make something a "Rye Ale", which this is certainly not. Could pass as a brown ale.
