Bottle pour. Strong belgian like aromas with the hops and citrus. Sediment from the bottle floats in this darker golden brew. Stronger bitterness. Long lasting head.

Bottle. Dark gold color. Good hop aroma. Dry malt flavor with lots of bitter, citrus hops. I can’t taste the rye, but this is a good pale ale.

Tap at Bottlebar East. Pours murky straw gold with medium white head, great lacing. Aromas of rindy citrus fruits, and rye. Taste is awesome: lemons, floral hops, juice, wood, apple, and malt. Finishes slightly bitter not too dry. Medium body. Balanced well. Nice beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden with small white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, rye spiciness. Tastes jumps out as pine bitterness, light but smooth body, flavor develops into sour rye, grapefruit and lemon, bitterness mellows and changes into spice with a slight sweetness and bread on the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great aroma, nice white head about 2" thick. Beer smells strongly of citrus, lemongrass, slight hint of pine and rye. Flavor is not as strong on the hops as the aroma would lead one to believe, but certainly not bad, nice rye aftertaste makes for a great finish. Surprisingly light for the ABV, I think I will buy this beer again once the weather warms up here in MN and maybe review again.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a good white head that diminishes rapidly. Aroma is mostly citrus, with grapefruit, lemon, mango, spices, along with a bit of rye notes underneath. The taste loses much of the enticing citrus impressions. They are still noticed, but instead there is a heavy grainy and skunky flavor that is present and most prominent that isn’t very appetizing. That heavy grainy taste gathers strength after the initial sip throughout the aftertaste. Medium in body, with a rough, bubbly texture. I’m not a fan of this one.
