Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 22 oz bomber. Murky dark orange pour with a sticky white pillowy head that leaves sticky lacing.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is oranges and lemons with some biscuit malt. I don’t get any rye in the aroma.
The flavor is more like I expected. I get a nice amount of rye, which is complimented with some bitter oranges and biscuit malt. Low to medium bitterness.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2010

Hazy golden appearance with a slight white head. Aroma is hoppy with hints of fresh grass. Flavor is hoppy with a sharp somewhat floral astringency. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, though assertive. Good beer, could have used a bit more body to balance some of the strong tartness present. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2010

Bomber from Hop City, Atlanta. Bright light amber pour, with a robust head that settles fairly quickly. Nose is very soft, with floral notes and only a trace amount of spicy rye. Body is medium, with somewhat prickly carbonation seeming to bring the rye out just a bit more. Sweet and fruity hops still the dominant flavor though. Not bad. ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Pours a clear orange with white head. Aroma of rye and grapefruit. Taste is similar, very crisp and refreshing hop finish, the rye rounds out finish nicely. Crank Tank!
