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.

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.

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.

reggiedunlop (3724) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2012
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.

Tap at Flying Saucer, Sugar Land.
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.
