Hops and pine cones mixed with cereal and nut aroma, although muted. Medium body, hoppy flavour and a bitter finish. One dimensional, especially considering the style but enjoyable none the less.

Iechyd da Joe. Copper/ber pour with a white frothy head and clinging lace. Syrup, honey malt aroma with bitter hop hints. Malt flavour with a strong peach influence. Syrup texture. Sweet overall. Its a beer that grows on you.

[bottle--thanks, Eric C!]
Sweet strawberries and cream and pine and grapefruit aroma--fresh hops. Slightly hazy amber under a dense, eternal pristine foam that laces the glass. Plenty of hops in the taste--pine and strawberry (Centennial?) complemented by a sweet base malt that has some toffee character but not overmuch. A moderate bitterness is there in the end to balance the sweetness. Medium body, moderate carbonation (could use a touch more), sweet and bitter grapefruit peel finish.

Keg at loose moose Toronto. Slightly hazy amber colour. Not a big aroma, its fruity that's about it. Taste is good though. Sweet, tropical fruits, caramel, grapefruit, good bitterness. Not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy bright orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of rye upfront, followed by some crystal malt, and subdued hops. Flavour brings out loads of rye upfront, followed by a mix of different hops, and some crisp biscuity malt. Very dominated by the rye, leaving a long astringency. Not the easiest to drink, but well-made.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours orange with gold highlights, it is translucent (hazy) with a few lees floating about; the head is off-white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: pineapple, mango, and toffee. The taste is light sweet that finishes very dry and medium bitter; there are notes of: grapefruit pith, rye, mango, and strange note (I assume from the rye; almost floral). The palate is medium bodied, light carbonation, slightly astringent, and a long bitter finish. Overall, interesting, but the rye isnít pronounced enough to vastly differ it from an IPA.

Poured from 650ML 6.6%bottle. into a tall dickís last rersort glass from Myrtle Beacxh,S.C. Anywho big head,coppy orange,smells lots of lemon kinda like cleaner,some pine and a liottle boosy ior sweet wit a warmth and grapefrut, and grass?. Taste is grape fruite and lemon,tingly tonge,some bitterness,a tad little sweetness and itís kinda ruff and goís right to my head and is heavy bodied. This is for hop headís. Itís a stronger flavoured hoppy beer. Not awful but one 650ml bottle is deff more then enough. Itís another type of ipa type beer really with rye.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2013 Great brew! Well balanced RyePA with some spicy, nutty notes from the rye, nice floral hoppiness and medium bitter finish. Great beer; one of my favourites... wish it was available year íround, and in a 6er.
