3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark copper medium bone head. Aroma is fresh hoppiness. Flavor has a resiny upfront hop bite to it, which leads to the sweet rye and allows some of the hops to come through with citrus and pine. The bitterness is a little too high for this to be drinkable but if you like rye’s you’ll like this.

Bottle. Pours honey color. Big frothy long lasting off white head. Aroma of pine, but also spice. Flavor has citrus and lots of pepper spices. Good lacing. Big hoppy mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good beer that I’d drink again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a golden color with one finger head. Aroma of potent rye bread, rice, and floral grass hay hops. Gives way to a light sweetness and medium light bitter throughout. Very unique and surprisingly pretty good. Yo Adrian- come have a sip of this!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is medium carbonation, off white to creamy head of 3/4in with gentle bubbles in glass. Slight haze and light amber color. Aroma of bread, pineapple, maybe some apricot(?)--could be a blend of the malt sweetness and pineapple combined. Taste is somewhat thin, slight citrus dryness with back of tongue hop bitterness in finish. Rye could be a bit stronger. Overall a smooth beer, needs a little more depth/complexity to be outstanding.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Amber color with a long-lasting off-white head. Aroma is malt-forward with bread and biscuit ahead of the hops. Taste is initially sweet but that’s quickly followed by pepper, cloves, and maybe even a hint of ginger before the bitterness kicks in. The finish is quite bitter and long. Overall flavor is quite complex. The mouth feel is a little less firm than I’d prefer, but still tasty, even it it’s not an every day beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of my least favorite Great Lakes beers, mostly because of the buttery aftertaste. The peppery spice is nice, though....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 355ml. -Courtesy of MatSciGuy, shared with him and Marko (thanks!). Orange/golden coloured, small off-white head, pleasant hoppy nose. Sweet malty, citric hoppy and light alcoholic with moderate bitterness in the finish. Interesting but somehow pretty ordinary brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear rust orange with white head. Has a grainy and citrus hop aroma. A very earthy and grainy taste with strong malts and hops that linger with a bitter aftertaste.
