Had this on draught tonight... I don't have much rye experience either. This one was interesting, kind of a "raw" taste to it -- my wife said it tasted as close as she's had to the way a typical wort boil smells, and I kind of see where she's coming from. I liked the hop profile, but there is a kind of a sweet/spicy punch, maybe due to the rye(?), that was a little rough. I liked the one I had, but I'm not sure I could sit there and drink 4-6 in a row. Anyway, I don't actually know anything about tasting beer, so to each his own.

I thought this was really, really good - better than Celebration even, and I drank a lot of Celebration this winter. I wanna know what % of the grain bill is rye in this. I plan on drinking way too many of these tonight.

I'm starting to stock pile this beer in my basement, for some summer days by my pool...

All I can say is yummy. Love the hops profile this beer has. I'm stockpiling while it's still in the stores. Only problem is I can't keep the bottles from popping open and hopping into my hand!

Just tried this tonight for the first time. Like others, I haven't had much rye experience. This is a pretty fine beer, however. I like it quite a bit.

I'm having one right now. I also love this beer, and I do understand the "raw" comments people are making, I use a lot of rye in my brewing so I'm looking forward to brewing this one as soon as I can. Does anybody know what hops are in this? It almost has a German noble hops taste to it.
