French Broad Rye Hopper has a thin, off-white head, a brilliant orange, bubbly, mostly opaque appearance with some noticeable sediment chunks roiling about and a bit of a lacing sheen left behind on the glass. The aroma is odd- sharp, intense, acidic citrus and even an almost turned orange juice smell. Hop resin, sweetness, pepper, and bread are also detected. Taste is unusual, too- sharp, sweet, acidic citrus, peppery rye, white bread, and a bitterness that grows as one drinks through the bomber bottle. Mouthfeel is medium, and French Broad Rye Hopper finishes dry and tart.
