3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can. The beer has a very pleasant, sweet aroma. Almost like a combination of grapefruit and peaches. Pale yellow and hazy with good carbonation and a nice amount of white head. The taste is very interesting, hoppy and bitter. Fizzy on the palate with a bitter aftertaste.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy golden with a nice foamy and big head and lots of lacing on the glass. Floral hops on the nose combined witha bit of malts. Taste is a bit of spices, citrus fruit and rye. Nice enjoyable beer, easy to drink.

Very flowery smell and taste of hops. Slight lemon detected with a little spice. Cloudy dark amber color with minimal head. Tart to slightly sour aftertaste. Overall, I enjoyed it.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Undated 12 oz can purchased near brewery about 3 months ago and kept refrigerated.
Pours golden with a small, partially durable head.
Smells spicy and floral, rather as expected.
But the flavor clearly reveals wild yeast. Unintentional I believe. So much for unpasteurized in this case? Effects actually fit somewhat with the spicy rye profile and don’t detract that much from the beer, but it certainly doesn’t taste like it is supposed to.

Can to pint, pours a clear golden orange. Scent is citrus and bready. Taste of light citrus hops, grain, and rye in the finish. Easy to drink this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hop dominated. Overwhelming dryness and bitterness and not even a hint of the malts advertised in the company blah, blah, blah. Nonetheless, quite good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Bottle: shiny, golden color with orange edges. Nice clarity throughout, topped with a big-bubbled, foamy white head. Aroma is kind of... sweaty a first. Strange. Lots of "green", vegetal-like hops; light, wet, floral. Bitter grapefruit peel, dry finish with spicy rye notes, though not as much as expected. Taste has some alcohol warmth, white pepper-like, earthy spice, lots of bready, dry, spicy rye... Much more present in flavor than in aroma. Hops are leafy, ashy pine needles with a heavy finishing bitterness. Some bready malts come into the finish for a rye bread kind of feel. Decent beer, I’m just not the biggest fan of rye. This was enjoyable enough.

Definitely one of the ones I liked better from Arcadia. I am usually a fan of ryes also and this one had a nice crisp toastiness to it.
