It has a great body and texture to it, not very aromatic tho. Medium body with a very bitter finish.

Taster at Whole Lotta Brews going on at Whole Foods in Folsom. Aroma and flavor is a tamely hopped rye red. Sorta watery in parts. Ok beer.

651mL thanks to ChinoSkillzian. Good foam. Clear amber. Good lacing. Nose is vanilla dairy, stickier, slightly moldy with candied orange, maple. Taste is raw grain, bitter oatmeal, rustic and husky. Pretty husky but still drinkable.

Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a dark reddish brown, a color not unlike a Dubbel, very little tan head. Aroma malty, sweet, raisins, figs, smells like a Dubbel, too. Huh. Body is surprisingly delicate, taste very nice, rye and slight bitterness at at end, lovely finish. Not mind-blowing, just interesting and tasty.

Great rye. His all the right notes, spicy, with enough body to keep the hops honest, while still being refreshing.

A very nice beer. Pours a really nice amber with a thick white head. Smells incredible, like tropical fruit and vanilla. Taste is creamy and little sour, with a hoppy finish. Had on tap at Hopmonk.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 Soapy, a hint spicy, quite perfumey hoppy. Moderate body. Moderate to high bitterness. Well made if not quite hitting it out of the park. RERATE. Agreat hoppy rye infused pale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber pours with a clear amber body supporting a tan colored head of foam. The modest aroma is a little roasty, a little nutty as well as delivering some pine hoppiness. The taste is very nice as I get a pleasing mix of mildly roasted malts, a touch of nutty malts and then pine hops backed up by a dark German rye bread like spiciness. To midway a thin ring of citrus hoppiness joins in and helps the experience get even more bitter with hops as the malts seem to get a little bit roastier. Tasty stuff indeed.
