Picked up a single at the Downtown Wine and Gourmet in Harrisonburg, VA on 9-19 for $3.99. Bottled on 8-13-13.

Beer poured copper with a nice white head that is leaving some lacing behind.

Nose is citrus city with hints of caramel malt and rye.

Taste has a nice caramel malt backing with a nice citrus and rye spiced finish.

Mouthfeel is moderately carbonated, medium bodied, and refreshing.

Overall this is an excellent beer, i have found i really enjoy rye infused brews...definitely try it if you have the chance!
