Pours dark amber with a decent off-white head. Has a nice pine hops aroma and maybe a little floral. Flavor is very well balanced hops and malt with some spice from the rye. Had good lacing. Very surprised overall, only because I didnít know what to expect. Very good brew overall.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2006 You guessed it, this beer pours red. A nice shade of red too. Small white head quickly diminishes. Thereís a real hop/malt combo happening in the aroma. Fresh squeezed orange dominates with subtle hints of pine and grapefruit rind. This combo carries over in the flavor - grapefuit and other sour fuit are evident. The finish is smooth - and leaves you with a hint of lemon. Nice drinkability and just really solid all the way around.

Bottle pours dark caramel, quite cloudy, large frothy off-white head, clingy lacing, with very soft carbonation. † Hops, slight pine, and citrus rind on the nose. † Semi-sweet bitterness, citrusy, with a nice malty background. † Quite smooth and well balanced. † Solid body, creamy mouthfeel. † Finishes with a floral quality, smooth hop bitterness, and lingering citrus notes. † I really enjoyed this one! † Thanks goes out to TAR for this one!

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 14th, 2005: Two beers in a row that exceeded expectations. This beer is a light amber color with a medium thin off-white head and minimal lacing. Rye is prevalent in the nose, along with some hops and caramel. Medium-bodied with a blast of citrus and floral hops flavor. Rye and grain is much more understated than in the aroma and it works well. The finish is lightly sweet with a touch of spice. Well-done.

Pours amber with a white head. Smooth taste with above average hops. Sweet sugary red ale taste with a hop kick. A great combo, results in a great beer. Far better than I had anticipated.

sfontain (807) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Small sample from 12 oz. bottle at From the Vine beer tasting in Lewis Center, Ohio. Reddish orange; small, off-white head. Aroma citrus and hops. Flavor similar. Medium body, very slight stickiness. Too hoppy for my tastes.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2005 Bright dark copper color with a taller head of tan bubbles. Couple small rings of lace. Fresh hops aromas of grapefruit flesh and orange rinds. A true hops head aroma. But as it warms some malt goodness is detected in the nose. Hops juice from the start. with fresh pine and mild citrus. Lots of malt sweetness to back this up, but not real strong. Some caramel and pale malt flavors. Finishes with a touch of acidity from the hops that seems to cleanse the palate. Enough slickness that you can feel the rye. For some reason I am back on the hops wagon and this one is carrying me to the hops field of dream. Finish with a floor malt taste that went well with the mexican food tonight. The mix with the red peppers is awesome. this is only my fourth or fifth brew from the brewery, but I will be in search for more!

This is my kind of beer! The aroma is dripping with oranges and grapefruit, like a tangy fruit salad. Beautiful deep red in color, kind of thick like cider. Te flavor explodes with tart sweetness of the variety of malts, caramel and rye, and the hops dig in their teeth and deliver a balanced attack. Very crispy and spice finish with a grapefruit aftertaste. This brew is a real winner! Thanks to Sliphium for the love, props to Brad!

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Bottle: After reading the commercial description, I sure wasnít expecting a big citrus hop aroma. Pours a hazy amber with a decent off-white head that lasts a minute or so. Very nice lacing. Very hoppy from start to finish with more intensified hops in the finish. Outside of the big hops I only get a faint caramel lingering in the far background. Seems very much like an IPA. A little more balance wouldnít hurt.
