viscious and full flavored. Full of pine and citrus with patchouli in malt and a hint of rye at just the mid palate. moldy stink and hay entwined near the finish. Marvelous.

Tap RnH: Hazy golden with a fading white. Phenolic aroma with some mild pine and chewy bready notes. Crisp body- phenolic flavor with a piny spiciness and a light rye malt note. Not bad.

citrus, and spicy aroma. hazy orange, minimal head, medium bitterness, sticky texture with a very long bitter finish. i liked the beer but can only drink one per session- the graininess makes it a little rough going down- heartburn inducing.

GABF. Hazy yellow with small white head. Aroma is lemongrass, light fruity hops, touch of rye. Taste is fruity esters, light-med hop kick. Not much bitterness, not a lot of rye either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Toad in the Hole. Cloudy pale orange with minimal head but strong lace. Fresh tangerine and cookie spice aromas, plus a bit of bread and funk. Very sweet, with delicate citrus notes. Sweetness is too much for the medium bitterness. Pleasant overall but hard to drink.

Pour straw clear. active carbonation small white head. Citrus throughout. Dry start semisweet middle spicy hoppy finish. The key feature of this beer is definitely the rye malts adds a lot of spiciness to it.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Glass at Fat Head’s. Hazy orange pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma is over the top orangy hops (I love me some Centennial!) with some spicy hops and rye malt. Flavor is rye malt with orange, banana, clove and a citrusy finish. Very nice, but would love to try a version made with American ale yeast.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma was slightly hoppy of citrus hops... Flavor was much sweeter than I expected, tasted more like pineapple juice than beer.... Okay, not really beer, definitely unique

Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and rye. Medium body with flavors of bready malt, yeast, citrusy hops and spicy rye. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruit aftertaste. Above average overall.
