Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of hops, light rye, light fruit, lightly toasty malts, and a hint of cocoa. Poured copper/amber in color with a small, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Lightly hazy. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malts, cocoa, rye, hops, slight caramel, and resin. Medium body. Chalky texture. Average carbonation. Chalky, hoppy, rye, finish.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2009
Growler. Aroma of tropical fruits, rich, sweet, rye malt with a nougat character. Flavor is very sweet, surprisingly sweet almost, considering all the hoppy, tropical fruit notes that continue to come through. Pretty simple, and a bit too sweet for me to want to finish a whole pint, but not bad either.

dogfish120love (1000) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2009
Pours amber/copper in coloration. a somewhat hoppy aroma . The rye is undoubtedly noticeable in the flavor yet an ipa esc quality shines through it due primarily to the notable grapefruit flavor.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2009
Growler from Bellport Cold Beer & Soda. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of light fruits and sweet malt, a touch of citrusy and floral hops. Flavor of grainy rye initially and some crackery malt and bitter hops in the finish. Light nuttiness too. On the sweet side, yes, but overall pretty decent. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Cask at 3rd Manhattan Cask Fest. Hazy golden appearance. Aroma is lightly toasty and fruity and a little bit of citrusy hoppiness. Low esters and quite clean tasting. The beer is in great shape. Nice crackery pale malts and a touch of soft zestiness as well. Lingering lemon citrusy hop finish. I like it.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Cask at 3rd Manhattan Cask Fest: Pours a nice copper with a well retained tan head. Chewy malt aroma- some rye sweetness, bready caramel notes and a light American hop spiciness. Rounded palate. The flavor has a balance of nutty crystal malt notes, sweet bready rye, and a spicy, lightly resiny hop finish. Pretty typical profile, but this stuff served fairly well on cask.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2010 Appearance is a dark amber red, white head. The aroma is rye, hops, caramel. Like a pale ale with rye in it. The flavor is rye, caramel malts, and hops (floral). The finish is mainly a floral hoppiness, some rye left on the palate. Enjoyable beer.
