A: Dark amber and copper color, slightly clouded, no head but plenty of lace

S: You can smell hops, malt and a hint of sugar

T: wow, this is quite a combination! This beer kicks you right in the taste buds in a way I was not expecting when I first tried this at the brewery. Even though it’s not exactly the highest IBU IPA in the world, it certainly is a bitter one; the combination of the hops they used to pair with the rye certainly makes a strong combination. The finish is extremely long lasting and the bitter hop flavor stays for a long time.

O: When I first tried this at the brewery I was blown away, it was so aggressive and intense. I quickly fell in love with it and walked over to the counter and bought one of their “Cane and Ebel” T-shirts right away. I’ve introduced this beer to a few beer drinkers and non-beer drinkers alike and there are always mixed reactions, but either way once you have this beer you’ll remember it.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/28/2014. Pours moderately hazy deep copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of mango, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, caramel, rye, toast, floral, grass, candi sugar, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of mango, tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, caramel, rye, toast, candi sugar, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, mango, pineapple, orange/lemon zest, caramel, rye, toast, floral, grass, candi sugar, and light pine on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of malt and hop flavors; with a nice crisp hop/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a slightly creamy, smooth, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice hoppy rye ale. All around good balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Dark copper color with a caramel one finger head with medium retention and leaving lots of laces.
Delicious aroma of grapefruit, American Amber Ale yeast, passion fruit, spices and a hint of pine and rye.
Sweet flavor of rye, grapefruit, American Amber Ale yeast, spices, lots of caramels, earth, papaya, pine and lemon. Dry with a long bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 7.0% abv is very well hidden.
Great beer. A bold and beer with strong flavors given its hop profile and rye, but very well balanced. Its sweetness could be tuned down a bit. If you like Rye beers and a hoppy punch, you got to try this.
