Rye is the word on this one. Interesting flavor. Well crafted and I enjoyed it.

12oz can into tulip glass. Can date on six pack holder 2-4-14 I believe.

Pours very light in color, with a small white head. Very carbonated from the onset. However I prefer to drink this straight from the can, it seems to pack a bigger hop kick. This is a very easy to drink beer with lots rye but not a lot else going for it. Drink from the can.

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.75 A: Clear yellow orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy/foamy white head. Retention is very good and a decent bit of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Dirty spicy earthiness in this. Rye runs the show. Touch of grassy hoppiness. Planky woodiness.

3.5 T: Like the nose, lots of rye earthiness. Grassy, woody, dry hay. Crisp toasty maltiness.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slight creaminess and plenty smooth.

3.5 D: Not bad. Nothing special, but it'll scratch the rye itch.

Reviewed 3-28-15. Water goblet. Canned date 2-2-15.

Appearance: Pours a deep, clear gold with 1 finger off-white head, with little slow carbonation. Nice lacing. Retains a ring of white along edges.

Aroma: Whoa! Fruity - grapefruit, kiwi, sweet, citrus.

Taste: Dry, light arrival. Rye spice & hop bitterness on mid-palate. Light, clean finish with lingering rye spice (like rye bread). Not malty in the least.

Mouthfeel: Light, moderate carbonation, slightly astringent.

Overall: I really like this! Light, fresh & springy. The aroma is fantastic. This would be a great spring/summer regular. I'd still pick a pilsner over this 10/10 times, but this is good. The rye is less noticeable as it goes on. Overall, a light, dry, crisp, extremely pale ale. Very sessionable.

Nice rye bite on this one. But the flavor does not last or linger. A lot of it could stand to stick around longer. Still a nice beer though.

I can't drink enough of this beer. It is outrageously refreshing, and it tastes exactly how the can looks. I'm not even kidding. Stare closely at an ice-cold can, appreciate the palate of colors, and imagine how the beer might taste. Bam- you've got it. That is exactly how it tastes.

It's not as hoppy as the average IPA, but has an absolutely delicious earthy bitterness and is basically the taste of spring embodied. The rye definitely gives a very nice spicy character to it. I can't recommend this highly enough.

Also, I love seeing quality beer in cans. Cans are just so convenient and the contents taste just as good as bottles.

I didn't get much of the rye in this. The hops is not terribly strong. These two attributes make for a lighter, crispier ale. It is very enjoyable but surprising considering the rye piece of it.

Resiny, slightly sweet grain aroma. Rye is dominant in flavor, with a touch of citrus. Finish is more spicy than bitter.

Can from free beer week contest. Thanks! Pours clear golden with a fluffy two finger white head. Really beautiful. Sweet candied citrus aroma, light grass, a small hint of pine, and even smaller bit of rye spice notes on the smell. Flavor starts with light malts and a hit of bitter, and then it just falls off. Bland bitterness and really dirty unpleasant finish on this. Really unfortunate. Light bodied with medium plus plus carbonation. Everything about this beer is excellent except the most important part: flavor. What happened. Still drinkable and I think this can be fixed, but strange off flavors in the aftertaste here.

A-poured a two fingers thick eggshell-colored head into a tulip glass. The body is a bright amber color.
S-rye, some sweetness, slight hoppiness.
T-piney with a spicy finish.
M-medium, coating, nice carbonation levels.
O-delicious and quaffable. Not quite terrapin or good people's rye but it more than holds its own.
