Draft at Rattle N Hum. Pours a mahogany body with a tan head. Pine, rye, and caramel malt with a light etoh warming. Malty dry body and a bitter finish. TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Tap at the Diamond.Poured a mahogany brown with a thin head. The nose was rye big time. The front of this beer was on the light side, pretty crisp, but when the malt kicked in, it really comes to life. Big malt flavor with lots of rye to go around. Very earthy flavored, but not in a bad way. Nice dry finish. Extremely drinkable. The best six point I have yet to try. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2008
(Draught) Pours a cloudy deep amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma of florals, Belgian yeast, and toasted rye. Flavor of rye, oak, hops (floral, citrus), banana, and clove. WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Cloudy reddish brown, small head. Nose of spices, hops, and fruit. Tastes of sweet fruit, rye, with a hoppy bitter finish. Enjoyable, not quite memorable. chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2008

Cask at Pacific Standard. I loved this beer. Really good stuff. Bright amber pour with some bubbles from the cask pour. Bread, citrus, yeast, and a ton of good sweet rye malt. Not as spicy as some, but just enough. Nicely bitter. Yum. hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
So I guess I am another person who rated this a 3.6, purely by coincidence. Hazy amber in color- looks like murky apple cider. Aroma- some yeasty esters and phenolics, as well as some citrus, apple. Taste is pretty hoppy with some citrus and floral, some yeasty esters as it warmed (banana), light phenolics, and some nice sublte rye character. Finishes with lingering hop bitterness and yeast phenolics. Overall pretty nice. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 23, 2008
750ml growler bottle courtesy of goldtwins. Pours a hazy amber with a nice tan head. Smells of citrus, wildflowers, some dough. Tastes earthy and lightly bitter with a nice citrussy finish. HailSquishface (16) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2008
Got this in a trade with Sixpoint.
Poured a dark ruby with a huge long lasting creamy off-white head into my Kuhnhenn tulip. Leaves a lot of lacing.
Smells of bread, caramel, flowery, and citrus.
First tastes are sweet, fruity, spicy rye, followed by grassy, citrus bitterness.
Meduim bodied with a dry finish. beastiefan2k (3981) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2007
I guess I will stick with the mode rating (completely coincidental). The beer is a dark amber color with a small sticky head. Aroma actually has something new for a Sixpoint beer, not a completely hoppy beer. There is a sweet spiciness that I attribute to the rye, like a lightly phenolic-y wheat. This is actually as strong if not stronger than the usual hop aromas of citrus and thick sweet floral tea. Taste combines the two aspects, with a reduction in the rye presence. The beer is sort of a light assault on the senses with the strong rye and strong hops. This was probably the best Sixpoint experience I had in a while.
Tap at Blind Tiger, served in tulip glass.
