3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from the Brewery This was purchased on the day the brewry was hosting a Grand Opening of their new location. A very nice lady filled a growler for our Special Olympics Polar plunge in Virginia beach. The ale poured a clear to hazy amber clor with small head and no lacing. The aroma was light citrus. The bitterness did dominate the taste as well. This is a complex beverage that is most enjoyable. The finish had lingering hop bitterness mostly citrus.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours reddish with a small, off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, caramel, and light rye. Flavors of citrus and light pine hops, sweet caramel, spicy rye and a touch of earthiness. More hoppy than expected, in a good way. More citrus, light pine, caramel and rye in the finish. More rye spiciness as it warms. Alcohol is very well hidden. A tasty beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from the brewery. Reddish pour with a thin khaki head. Light floral and grapefruit aroma. The bitterness from the hops is met with an assertive toffee and chocolate balance in the malt profile. The bitterness lingers for a while on the palate. Really good as it is but I would prefer a stronger hop presence.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler shared with friends, thanks Ken! Pours a clear amber with an off-white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of of dark grains and rye with a bit of backing floral and grassy hops. Flavor begins with some resinous pine with a rye backbone and has a bit of citrus come out with hints of sweet grains.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear dark vibrant red color with a thin creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of stone fruits, toffee, rye, earthy and herbal notes. The taste is bitter rye, herbal hops, toffee and earthy notes. Medium bodied. A little bit bland and definitely off-balance.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a brewery-born growler. Pronounced red hue, shiny and clear, with an airy head. The beer emits a decidedly caramel aroma, with an earthy backdrop. It drinks with a muscular mouthfeel, slick and laden with flavor -- caramel malt and tangy pine, both the rye and hops evident but subdued. Sneaky for 9%, so be careful! (#4579, 4/29/2012)
