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.

BLADT (625) - 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.

Emeister84 (985) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Caramel, citrus, pine, and subtle pepper on the nose. Clear amber-red with a somewhat lasting off-white head. Dry, some fruity maltiness, light pepper spice, bitter citrus. Medium bodied.

tectactoe (1855) - Michigan, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Tap: Amber-ish, copper color with a red-like tint, cloudy but not opaque. A thin khaki film quickly traverses to a collar. Aroma of grapefruit flesh, candied orange peel, sweet caramel malt, a touch of resinous pine needles, & a bit of melon on the back-end. Taste starts with more of the moderate bitter pine & hop oil with melon, grapefruit, & orange peel that comes rushing in mid-palate. Toasted, nearly burnt bready notes with some sweet caramel, dry yeast, & just a mild kiss of spiciness from the rye that hits the palate after the swallow. This is almost more of a red ale & rye ale hybrid than an "IPA", but it was pretty damn tasty nonetheless.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2014
On draught at Gallo’s Tap Room. Dark amber color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy hops, caramel malt and slight citrus. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draft Sample @ Brewvival. Reddish amber pour with an off-white head. Toasty malt, burnt grain. A bit of singed grass and forest fire. Rich nutty malts, rye spiciness. Robust bitter woody hops. Medium body, somewhat oily.
