3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of piney and citric hops, a bit stale, with some rye spiciness and a bit of malt. Flavor has some chewy malt, sweetish and a bit caramelly, fruity notes, strong bitterness with piney and slightly grapefruity hops, a bit stale, and some spicy rye notes. Medium-bodied. Decent, but past its prime.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Slightly hazy amber color with a decent white head.
Aroma of honey and stale hops, beer is obviously too old with only faint citrus and piney aromas.
Citrus peel flavor, some juicy light caramel malts, marmalade, faint spicy rye and hi bitterness.
Medium bodied, pretty quaffable, but lacks freshness. Could be great when fresh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Before I even open this and pour it, it picks up an extra +1 to overall solely for the name being awesome. Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a thin white head. Malty and sweet, a bit of rye with some slow citrus hops and caramel. Medium bodied, spicy citrus. Big grapefruit and pungent quinine and earthiness on the finish. Didnít quite live up to the great name it has, but still a decent enough rye ipa.

A mild ryePA. Nothing here is big - not the hops, not the rye - but it comes together nicely enough. Far from best in class though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A caramelized rye beer with a good citrusy hopping. Very good.
How: A few 12oz bottles shared by friends at a tasting, probably fresh.
The look: Clear darfk golden body topped by a persistent small beige head.
In long: Nose is clean and bright rye and citrus fruits. Taste has a good fresh rye presence with its usual intrinsic spiciness. Some caramel. A generous hopping that is predominantly citrus fruits. Obviously plays in the same territory as the classic Founders Red Rye, a little less rye-forward and less hop-forward as the Red Rye, kind of a lower intensity version of the Red Rye. I liked it a lot. Another rating, and I have become so proficient with this whole ratebeer thing that I am now riding my bike with no hands while using my smartphone to upload this rat
