Good use of the spicy rye flavor with a nice hop finish. Above average pale ale overall.
Dark orange reddish pour from draft at Springbrook. Nice cherry rye and boozy flavor. Hoppy and topical. Not bad wombat23 (1415) - Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus, spice and fruit. Taste is considerably more malty than the aroma. Spice, caramel, some citrus, light pine, and a nice biting finish from the rye. Decent. blahbobbyblah (103) - Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Poured a nice amber color with a small head. Smooth for an IPA with no heavy after taste. Wife shrugged when she tasted it which is different from her usual scowl when tasting an IPA.

Appearance: hazy translucent pale amber with one finger of creamy light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone and tropical fruit, earthy rye, bready malt, light citrus and floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body , moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter and mildly spicy finish. (3/5)
Nice - there’s a definite rye presence that’s very well integrated with the IPA bitterness, such that neither really dominates. Certainly it’s not as heavy-handed or spicy as some rye ales I’ve had. I’m not saying there’s necessarily anything wrong with a spicy rye beer, but this different, more subtle approach makes for an interesting change. Nothing earth-shattering but a nicely quaffable rye.

(En fût au Radio Coffee & Beer): Moelleux biscuit melanoidin, épices rouges et une pelure de tangerine. Saveurs entières, buvabilité transperçante.

Originally rated on 4/2/08. Never had a rye ale before but it was fairly decent, copper-tanish color. rye and malt scented and flavored, has a little bite to it. I Will probably buy it again. DrNosha (2332) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2015
12oz Flasche. Das Foto hier zeigt das falsche Bier. Hellbraunes Bier. Kräftig fruchtiges Aroma mit Roggen und Sauerteig Noten. Geschmack nach Krustenbrot und bitterer Frucht. GreatDane1632 (1169) - North Dakota, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Rated based on notes taken 22 Sep 2012 -- No notes. But rated a 4.0 on untapped. Good for it. Adjusted for inflation. maekchu (3888) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Thanks, Nate. Big citrusy, full, and mildy stinky nose. Medium copper color. Light caramel initial flavors, with some peppery rye in mid palate (a light burn), nice late balance. Fruity and flowery from id palate onwards. Thin-medium body. Very nice. KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2015
