22 oz bomber from "Lifesource", Salem Oregon. $4.95 Dark chesnut brown with a really impressive thick,creamy light tan head. Mostly hoppy/fruity type aromas..floral and slightly resinous. touch of rye but it isnt great Hmm a strange one mostly malty coffee type bitterness.. resiny hops..and again a spcy rye backing..but again its very slight. Quite nice mouthfeel to this one..very smooth and rich. A very nice beer but i feel cheated at the lack of the rye aspect Id be willing to consign this to the CDA category

A- Peachy brown with a head that had a nice look but fell quickly

S- Coppery banana bread

T- Strong rye, very straightforward bitter rye flavor compared with other ryes ive tried. Some malty goodness in there too.

M- Soft, doesn't stick around too long but leaves feeling clean and with a nice bitter pucker

O- Not the best rye i've had, much more straightforward and less balanced than others. Cool label if that counts for anything.

I'd recommend giving it a try. It definitely was much more what I expected ryes to taste like. Seems to be a lot of new ryes popping up in the bay area. If you like this definitely try to find speakeasy's scarlet and bear republics hop rod.

Got this from Bbothen as pay off from a Fantasy Football BIF!

Pours amber/caramel with 3+ fingers tan head. Insane lacing & head retention

S: Faint bready scents

T: Peppery spice, herbal & tea hoppyness, along with some biscuitty malt up front, plus nice piney notes. As this warms I pick up orange peel, then woody hop notes. again much bitter tea notes. Finishes crisp, semi-dry with more woody hops, a touch of caramel & pear fruittyness comes through as well

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, crisp, nice balance

A flavor pack amber that delivers rye crispness & plenty of hops complexity

Poured into a Chuckanut pint glass. Pours a dark mahogany brown with a fine, rich two finger vanilla colored head (looks just like a vanilla milkshake). Aroma is strong caramel malt, rye, cherries, faint hops, inviting. Flavor is caramel malt, yeasty rye bread, dark dried fruit, more muted than the aroma. Finishes with pleasant light caramel malt, rye and light grassy hops. Medium bodied with a light creaminess. A quite nice rye ale that also has the light fruitiness of a red ale, they make a good combination. Flavor is a bit laid back and is balanced enough and tasty enough I wish it was bit more aggressive. Looks and feels good, flavor is light but enjoyable. I'd buy this again.

Tasty - darker and more malty than most rye-based beers I have tried, but the combo works.

Pours a deep chocolatey brown with a fluffy head. The aroma is malty, with wood, coffee, chicory and carob. A healthy dollop of burned brown sugar. The flavor follows along, with dark caramel and cigarette ash, but behind it there is a bitter rye sting on the finish, a sharp, black pumpernickel character, with a slight sweetness on the end.

Tasty

Center poured from a 22 oz bottle into an etched pint glass. No freshness date.

A nice deep amber color with a thick, creamy 1/2" head. Leaves thick clingy lacing. Good retention.

Smells of pine and dark bread, a little dry toffee. Nice but a little faint.

More pine and dry toffee lead on the taste, a touch of baking chocolate, nice rye spiciness, a little pepper. Ends with some roastiness and grapefruit zest. A little more rye and citrus comes out as it warms, less pepper, along with more hop bitterness. Comes on with just a little caramelly sweetness and ends clean and dry. Quite bitter/hoppy overall, but with some nice malty flavors.

The texture comes on creamy and full, ends light and crisp. A bit too light maybe. Gets a little softer on the finish as it warms.

Nice complexity and a great appearance. Love the rye notes too. It's a bit too hoppy for the style to me, could use a touch more malt, but it's well made and interesting. Would buy again.

Picked up a growler tonight and anxious to try after passing over it numerous times. Poured into my Duvel glass and I am met with a dirty brown colored ale and a beige foamy head that stays awhile. Light lacing. The aroma definitely has the rye whiffs and also some chocolate, roasted malts, wood and slight leather. Nice. The taste is very rye with caramel hints and a nice hop kick to it with a slight spicy swallow. A lot of rye aftertaste with some salivating buds wanting more. Mouthfeel was a tad thin but it's a minor flaw. Overall I was impressed by this beer. If you are a rye fan this will be right up your alley. A nice beer worth seeking out.
