3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Great Lakes Brewing in the Cleveland Airport. Poured a medium amber, hint of orange, clear, good head. Aroma was slightly spicy peppery and citric hops. Flavor had a decent malt backbone, lightly caramel, some peppery notes presumably from the rye, and then a nicely balanced hop finish that was citric and pine oriented. Good stuff.

Got in a trade from Local beer swap. Pours a nice copper with small head. Slight malty flavor, spritzy malt/hop combination that is slightly weird.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour is a bright orange, not too hazy. The aroma is only slightly hoppy, more rye overall. The taste is fairly mild. Vastly different from an ipa, especially since I just had one before this. Was expecting more hops for sure. Only so slightly bitter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Diamond Market. Pours to the pint glass clear golden orange with a small creamy white head on top. Aroma is sweet malts, orange rinds, honey. Flavor is orange rinds, light hop grapefruit bitter, tiny hints of rye spice, and a very sweet sweet malt presence that dominates. Medium plus mouthfeel, slick, nearly syrupy, with medium low carbonation. Decent beer but disappointing by GL standards. Wonder if this is an old keg.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade and caramel malt. Body is full and crisp. Citrusy hops dominate the palate, while caramel malt and ripe fruit provide some support. Finish is long, dry and spicy. Excellent brew.

My favorite beer of all time. I love Rye and along with a strong complex, hop flavor it has everything I want in a beer.

Bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. Pours dark orange with a thin white head. Has a lot of lacing. Has some solid rye notes on the nose. Has some decent citrus on the tongue along with some of that rye spiciness. Finishes clean. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazed butterscotch orange amber with a creamy white head that fades somewhat quickly to a thick rim and light coating. Aroma is semi-sweet caramel malt and rye grains with a touch of mango. Taste is strongly rye malts into grapefruit citrus and bitter floral hops. Aftertaste teases caramel malt but bitterness predominates. Spicy and a bit sticky. A high quality variation of the style.
