Raspberry!
Poured from tap into 16 oz plastic cup. What little head there was dissipated immediately. The top of the beer surface remains embossed with the pour, lending character and richness of body. What head remains is lace in the meniscus.
Darkly translucent. Even bright lights nearby don't shine directly though yet it's a terrific burnished copper color,
As noted before, there's complexity to the flavor, with little malt/breadiness, a bit of resin, and a good dose of dry fruitiness. Somehow I'm picking up raspberry from the taste and scent, I won't complain.
Savannah tells me that BxB has a good distributor, and can be found even at Madison Sq Garden - kudos to them!
Next time I'm in the area, I'll be sure to stop back in!

Served on-tap at the Keg and Lantern in Brooklyn, NY

A: Pours a crystal clear medium copper-ish amber in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some faint burnt orange highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts with lighter aromas of rye spiciness and a moderate amount of citrus/grapefruit hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of caramel malts with just a hint of sweetness and moderate flavors of rye spiciness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit hops and some lighter flavors of herbal hops all of which impart a moderate amount of bitterness which fades away fairly slowly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of dryness int he finish.

O: This beer was really enjoyable because there was just enough rye spiciness in the flavor and aroma to differentiate it from a regular IPA but not so much as for the rye to dominate all of the other flavors. I found it to be fairly easy to drink and it hid the alcohol rather well.

On-tap at Keg & Lantern, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down, leaving some patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sweet caramel malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of caramel malts but isn't sweet because the malts are contrasted by spicy flavors from the rye.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a good balance between the malts and rye.

Had on tap at the Pizza Plant tonight.Poured into a standard pint glass a slightly chill hazed deep burnt orange with a thinner but well retained off white head.Aromas were quite spicy with a deep herbal sharpness,a faintly nutty base is there as well.Aromas are full on spicy rye and big earthy/spicy hops,a spicy explosion on the tongue,a firm nutty malt base goes well with the spiciness.A very good hoppy rye,my first Bronx beer is top notch.
