awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2011 On tap at Eccentric. Clear amber. Sweet piney nose. Incredible hoppy, piney, citrus, caramely red taste. Chalk this one up in the pool of beers that tick me off b/c Bells doesn’t bottle or growler them.

Patrickctenchi (4840) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2014

BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft @ the source. Dark amber with tan head. Aroma is piney and tropical, with caramel undertones. Hint of spice. Flavor is unabashedly bitter. Dry throughout. The rye lends a kick of dark spice. Real good, but not my favorite ale from Bell’s by a margin.

Sarlacc83 (1366) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2015
Tap at Belmont Station for CBC A: Dark red, swirling near-white head. N: Grapefruit in spades, pine, earth, some orange peel, grass, and dirty diapers. T: Sweet mostly; less bitter than I would have hoped. M: Medium body. Filling, creamy carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Not a beer in my wheelhouse (though it’s better than Double Mountain’s version.) Malty and sticky if you like that kind of thing, but definitely well made.
