3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Sethdude! Thanks! Pours dark, hazy, translucent gold with a not too large creamy white head. Aroma is floral and caramel. Indicates hop is dominant. Med body or better. Instant hop burn. Floral, citrus, caramel, earthy are flavors coming to mind. Itís reminding me of that odd Australian thing - lemon myrtle or something like that. Sort of grabs the mouth. Finishing hoppy, dryer than not, and nicely bitter. With time I can get tangerine. Very nice drink. Has the flavor impact of a DIPA.

Tap @ 4 Hands Anniversary Party. Pours a bit hazy, orange appearance with a cream colored head. Very spicy, rye malty, big spicy hoppy, grapefruit hoppy aroma. The flavor is packed with spiciness from the rye and from the hops with notes of citrus, grass, and toast malts. This was a sweet beer and one of my favorites of my STL beer tour.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared draft at the brewpub. Copper-gold, center of the color palate. Nice hoppy aroma of the American variety -- this would make any westie happy. The beer drinks with a delightful fruity flourish, with citrus being the central character. Finishes with a nice tangy bite. Very acidic, the sting taking over at the end. Very good exemplar of an American Pale Ale, IMHO. (#4504, 2/25/2012)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at 4 Hands in a sampler. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head that stays around for a while. Good-looking, but Iím with Vince in that I expected this to have a different color; I guess it leans more IPA than rye overall. The aroma has a good dose of floral hops, rye, sweet malts, and some herbs, as well. Flavor of floral and herbal hops, citrus fruit, sweet and caramel malts, rye, and some other peppery spices. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a floral, resinous mouthfeel. My favorite of the four in the sampler, but my favorite overall from this brewery so far is that Copia Saison they brought to the Fresh Hop Fest. I expect very good things to come if theyíve taken some ordinary styles and done such nice things with them.
