On tap a while back. Poured an amber/copper color with an off white head. Aroma of citrus, spice, caramel, earth, maybe some pine and citrus. Flavor had a good dose of citrus, caramel, citrus, rye and a bit of alcohol. Good stuff.

Deep amber pour with a foamy head. Lots of pine and citrus hops in the aroma, along with a hint of rye. The rye comes through more in the flavor, along with a good dose of the hop bitterness. Nice work by the AZ brewers.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2010
6/11/10 on tap at papago. clear rich dark coppery color with a soft white head. the nose is super citrusy and spicy... almost numbingly so... along with caramel (but not sweet), onions and musty dampness. the flavor shows the same components... caramel and malt (but not sweet), tons of citrus pith, grapefruit, earthy spice, orange peel and alcohol dryness on the finish. rye is a beast in the aftertaste. insanely creamy and slick but so crisp and spicy. it is terribly hoppy but not bitter. nice work... now dry hop some in a rye barrel! 8/4/8/4/16/4.0

Cask at Four Peaks-I hit this one very lucky. Mild hop and wild rye nose. Taste of strong rye, and nice mild hops. Very smooth milkshake. I could drink this all night. Excellent on cask.

Pint @ Four Peaks Scottsdale. Dark sunburned tangerine pour with a 1/4 ivory foam that left after a sip or two. Quite aromatic with bright citrus, grapefruit, and pine...not a huge rye presence in the nose. Flavor is very well balanced and is more rye-forward with caramel, honey, and malt balancing out the hop presence. Crisp and extremely tasty. Wish they did growler fills of this one!

On tap at Sleepy Dog since Four Peaks couldn’t get their release straight. Pours a thin brown color -- really weak looking, actually -- with a trim beige head. Smells like a baller IPA -- loaded with hops and grapefruit. Tastes of both with added notes of malt and rye on the finish. Approximates Yulesmith in flavor, but looks like a Diet Coke. Odd, but tasty.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Pours a nice brown with a small tan / white head. Aroma is soap, hops, caramel, malt, rye. Flavor is citrusy hops, touch of rye, good amount of bitterness, a bit herbal, oily mouthfeel with a bitter herbal hop rye finish. Tasty brew.

Draft at San Tan: Pours a clear golden amber with a small head with some lacing. The aroma is driven by rye. I almost imagine a loaf of it. The hops are subdued on the nose with maybe a some pine. The mouthfeel on this beer is good tending toward a little oily. I’m glad to see our AZ brewers collaborating on this and I hope they do more. I was told the ABV is 7.7 which is well hidden and dangerous. It’s an okay beer overall and one that I would order again but not as good as the best that some of the contributors brew on their own.

@papago. Pours a dark amber color. Nice aromatic nose of hops, pine notes and citrus. Very woody sharp rye notes yet crisp and very drinkable. Suprised how the combination of rye and high hops works well. The ibus were not too terribly high which worked out well. Malt blended well which inhanced the flavor. The end resulted in a muted bitter alcohol aftertaste which was bearable. You could sit down and have more than one without being on hop overload.

Pint at Four Peaks Scottsdale. Pours an orangish color with very little head. Aroma has some nice hops, rye, caramel malt and a bit of alcohol. You can certainly taste the rye and a good dose of caramel flavor. The hops are a bit muted, less of a bite than I would have expected, but the beer is very nice. Fairly well balanced. This one isn’t a mouth puckering IPA, but its good.
