Bottle thanks to northernbrews for sharing. Clear amber-red pour with a small foamy head. Aroma is an odd combo of caramel, oak, rye and dank citrus hops. Tastes like a vanilla, oak-y IPA. I actually like it but could see why most wouldn’t. Hops are pretty dank which I like. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Subtle rye spice as well.

Bottle: The aroma consists of oak, rye, citrus, and caramel. It pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, citrus, and rye. It’s light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

Bottle shared tonight by Michael, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a smallish off white head that dissipates slowly. Aromas of earthy, spice, flowers, pine and resin with just a hint of bread deep underneath. The flavor follows the aroma quite well but adds a bit of caramel to the maltiness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Nice beer, I enjoyed it and I’m glad I got to try it.

RBSG 2014: Coppery hue with small head. Nice oak and rye bread notes and while the hops are there big time on the nose, I did wish they were a little bit more forceful on the palate. The mouth feel was killer smooth but yet had a bite on the finish. Nice to try once.
