This beer is also available from the two brothers tap house on cask pour fridays and saturdays. I had this on cask, and it's even better, but currently I'm drinking it from the bottle. It's a deep reddish brown in color, clear with a light cream head. The aroma is definitely of hops. The taste is sweet, with a refreshing citrusy flavor from the hops, and a roasted malty afterfinish. It has a hint of warming alcohol. Actually, it's hard to detect the rye malt. Wonderful beer though, very drinkable. Even better on cask.

Bottle into tulip (best by 7/7/2013)

aroma- spicy earthy rye, citrus, pine, melon, slight fruit. Awesome

Flavor- rye, pine, juicy, herbal, some floral notes, good bitterness, hop forward

mouthfeel- meduim, smooth,

Overall- This is great, was not expecting the amount of flavor and aroma it packs. If you like rye and hops this is one to try for sure.

served in a pub glass. Pours a deep red-orange color with a 2 finger cream colored head that lasts well during drinking. Loose, light carbonation present.

Smells stroungly of old style sourdough rye bread. Light pine, spicy earthy smell with a touch of grapefruit.

Taste as smells. Very nice rye/malty sweetness with a touch of caramel. Finished with a slightly bitter piney-grapefruit tartness/dryness. I think I can taste some caraway seed. There is a pleasant taste of spiciness, but I can not tell what the individual spices are.

Full bodied, pleasantly oily mouthfeel. Not overpowering. Alcohol presence is balanced within the beer. Easy to drink. If you like rye, you will like this.

Crystal-clear reddish copper-colored beer with more than an inch of tan-tinged head giving up the gas in fat bubbles. Not much foam making it to my lip, but thick lacing and some of rising bubbles. Smells of grapefruit and a caramel malt made zippier by the rye.

Sharper greeting from all those 68 IBUs in the taste. Goodly grapefruit and piney kick, but backed up by darker sweet flavors -- toffee, caramelized sugars -- and a healthy rye snap. A glass starts out dry, but a bomber's worth piles up in your mouth a bit. You get a touch of the the rye and hops again every time you push your tongue around. Smooth and full-bodied, with light carbonation.

Oh, goodness, the ryes are growing on me. I'm going to want a bottle of this every time I see it at the store.

On tap at Two Brothers Tap House.

I'm not usually a fan of hoppy beers, but again Two Brothers makes me bite my tongue and enjoy a beautiful beer! The appearance was a dark amber red with nice white head. Smell was a bit spicy but I definitely picked up on some piney hoppiness. Because of the pine smell I expected the worse...not so! The subtle pine hop finish was blended beautifully with the maltiness.

Overall a decent beer and a definitely recommendation!

Poured from a bottle into my bruery tulip.

A- very dark brown. Very dark cola color is what it reminds me of. Some mahogany highlights patrol the edges. Nice 1 finger white head fades rather quickly to a polka dot cap. Good splatters of lace are in play. Good looking beer.

S- lots of hops! Citrus hops are here in force along with a Nice backing of floral and a splash of rye. Truly a great smelling beer.

T- great hop forward brew. Tons of citrus that is on the tangy side of bitter. Malts add some surface area so the rye can stand out. Hops are so fresh and sharp the rye takes a back seat But who cares, this is a great hoppy beer.

M- very good feel. Light to medium with a Nice subtle crisp carbonation that does its job and nothing more, which is just What I like.

Overall This beer is great. Huge hop flavors without any off flavors. The only thing that makes this a rye beer and not a top notch ipa is its color. As a bonus you could drink this all day it seems. Job well done two brothers

Pour Red Amber with a great frothy thick head. Recedes gradually leaving some lace

Scent Woodsy and floral hop aromas,some whole hop resin,not much malty stuff

there's a nice brief lead in of a good caramel before the hops catch up The hop's edge seems to get tamed a bit by the malts or rye but are rather flavorful,her resin,pine, a touch of smoke.

Mouth Seems rather full bodied but kind of flat for it's type. Out of curiosity,I took a swig from the bottle and some of that missing edge was there. Kind of strange,I can't recall another brew that's "Best Served In The Bottle".

Drinkable....yes It is a bit filling for it's type,rather tasty,not to big and boozy,but the shortage of carbonation put me off a bit.
