Bottle. Pouts a copper/amber color with a foamy white head. Nose is rye, grassy hops. Palate is full, firm, medium carbonation, light film, nice texture. Flavors of dry grassy hops, biscuits with a dryness and a light rye aftertaste. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Bottle. Poured copper with a tan head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Aromas of rye and citrus rind. The flavor found rye, citrus rind, and light malt backing. Medium body and a mild bitterness. Gottsacker (5) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 24, 2012 does not count
Bottle in pint glass. Nice overall IPA notes, typical SNB beer. The rye has a nice earthy tone, slight pepper corn. I enjoyed this beer. jnkor (364) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Interesting beer. Aroma is akin to a common IPA, but more earthy. Appearence s a nice copper, but more amber. Taste is the highlight, a mild bitter sweet IPA with n earthy taste. Palate is frothy, and slightly bitter finish, leaving a sour taste. Very nice twist. Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Aroma: a complex aroma, smells more earthy than an IPA
Appearance: light brown in color, clear, head is slightly frothy when poured but is then very minimal.
Taste: Starts off nutty, then has a medium bitter taste.
Palate: Frothy and lively carbonation with a nice bitter finish.
I overall loved this beer.

Pours a clear amber/copper color with a huge tan head...great lacing and retention. Aroma has mild citrus, some earthy/spicy notes, and slight doughy maltiness. Flavor is spicy and piney with mild grapefruit and nice earthy rye notes...slightly bready. Mouthfeel is medium and lively with a very bitter dry finish that lingers nicely. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2012

Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land.rmussman (1701) - California, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Pours a decent amber with a thin head and a nose of lightly roasted hay and crispy leaves. Flavor is floral hops, toasted rose petals, and a toast finish. Tingly mouthfeel. Not bad.
Really nice IPA. Super excited about the rye flavor. Served ice cold and this brew had a great head on it and a sweet aroma. Great on the palate.
