Can: Honey, caramel, and pine aroma, malty. Murky ochre, thin yellow head. Full body, a little hot. Piney bitterness, honey underneath, kind of muddled. Grapefruit peel finish as the maltiness fades away. Tasty.

16oz can. Pours a medium amber with very little white head. Almost no carbonation. Sweet malt flavors. Caramel, bread. Lots of sediment. Meh

AWISLguy (1160) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2013
16oz can from BrookFalls Discount. Pours an amber orange with an off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma has citrus and sour fruits and pale malts and earthy grain. Taste is of grapefruit and grapes, with some solid caramel malt back. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly bitter with some length. An interesting brew; not sure what style they were going for.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Can: Pours cloudy, iced-tea brown with a short, tan head. Toasty bread, caramel aroma. Taste is rye malt, caramel. Bitter resin and alcohol. Not exactly enjoyable...a bit harsh.

ADesenberg (552) - Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Can: pours a reddish copper brown color with a tiny little tan head. Aroma is malt with some spicy rye. Nice heavy mouthfeel with a bitter backbone. It’s all malt upfront with that spicy rye again. This is a wonderful beer if you are looking to fill up on something. It’s pretty heavy feeling, in a good way. Tasty beer after a long day at work. Enjoyed this much more than the first time I tried it.

Beerman6686 (4170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Poured a semi hazy orange with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, herbal hops, and booze. Taste is pretty standard asa, lots of malt and hops and booze.

Scrapersnbeer (1465) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Doughy, bready malt smell with knotty hop background. Creamy looking bright amber color, features some slimy lace. Semi-sweet malt taste, bitter in a way that is chalky or stoney. Could be labeled as a ’double red’ IPA, the style that’s malt forward bit still on the bitter side. Thick coating bodied beer, had the feel of coffee with cream. Plus .1 for the awesome can design with a literal fascist pig.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Can. Cloudy amber color, scant edge head. Aroma of pine, flowers. Taste is very bitter pine resin.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
can. pours slightly hazy red with a nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. fruity caramel, toasted, spicy and doughy malts, grass, strawberry-like hops, warming alcohol, citrus. average to moderate carbonation, medium body - oily but not too heavy, bold spicy-citrusy finish. tad too sweet though. actually enjoyed this caramel-forward brew, maybe because of rye presence and assertive hoppiness.

Daytonbeer (634) - Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Pours cloudy and red with an off white head and no lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, and cotton candy. Taste of light malts, burnt sugar, and light friut. Enjoyable brew.
