Draft at Moriartys. Slighty hazy deep amber pour with fizzy white foam that left a smattering of lace. Rich medium dark caramel malts infused with earthy resiny hops. Heady alcohol feel. Sense of a sugary Belgium Quad in the background but the hops and alcohol overpower it. A spicy Quad liquor.

Caramel malt with medium to high hop bitterness, hints of Belgian yeast, and just a little spice. If they hadn’t told me so, I wouldn’t have guessed that this was a rye IPA with Belgian yeast. Lots of sugar, tastes kind of like a Belgian Dubbel with extra hops.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grain, rye and slight caramel. Malt and rye flavor with banana esters before a grainy malt finish. Took a great beer and made it mediocre.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear coppery amber with a very thick buff head. Aroma has malty core and firm fruity notes, pear and apple with a cherry hint, as well as a subtle woody note. Bold flavor surprises with a strong joppy tone, woody and a little evergreen, plus fruity and malty notes. Alcohol nip is strong but not fierce. Firm, ragged mouthfeel leaves a woody and fruity finish. A heavenly brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at 7-11 Kittery, ME. Amber color with a small ring of lasting head retention. Aroma is rather nice, fruity yeast with floral and a strong pine undertone.
The sip starts with fruit tones of apple and pears. Throughout the middle is spicy rye and ending with some alcohol without any burn after the swallow. The finish has a blast of sugar and pine hops that produces mild bitterness. Oily/ slick texture over the tongue. Overall not bad but after it warms the alcohol becomes much more noticeable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
He’Brew / Cathedral Square St. Lenny’s is a unique brew. Yeast and hop aroma coming from a copper translucent pour with a thin head. Taste has a Belgian yeast quality with a hop kick -- well-balanced with the rye showing through It is a little too boozy on the finish. Different, yes; in a good way, not really. St. Lenny’s is ok, but not the right mix of qualities.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wegmans KOP. Pours clear amber with a small khaki colored head that dissipates quickly to a few small bubbles on the top of the glass. There is decent carbination bubbles in the glass. The aroma has apple skin, candied sugar, dark fruit, and a lot of citrus hop notes. The taste has a lot more Belgian notes than expected. There is a big boozy dark fruit.. raisiny prune.. on top of a big spicy hoppiness. This is a Belgian IPA but boy does it seem a bit high on the booze scale for 10%. Not bad, not great, but I enjoyed. I wouldn’t buy a case though.
