12 ounce bottle, no bottling date that I could find. Served in a DFH IPA glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a couple inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel malt, spicy rye, peppery spice, and pine and citrusy hops. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s the addition of some tropical fruitiness, earthiness and oranges. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s coating and is well carbonated. The 10% ABV is well hidden, it sure doesn’t drink like a beer that is that strong. One of my buddies gave me a bottle of this recently, and I’m glad he did! I wouldn’t mind trying this again, definitely worth picking up!

Clear deep reddish mahogany with an ample tan head. Spruce, caramel, hint of vanilla, bread. Quite strongly bitter, big malt sweetness. Chewy, oily, medium body, longer finish. Quite good.

Sample @ EBF.

Appearance: Bright golden-orange with a medium off-white head and good lacing.

Aroma: Burst of eucalyptus with caramel, peppermint and booze.

Taste: Moderate sweet. A lot of eucalyptus and peppermint with an heavy caramel malt presence, boozy notes and moderate bitterness. A bit more "balanced" than the aroma, but still cloying.

Palate: Medium to full body. Moderate to medium carbonation. A tad creamy. Sticky eucalyptus finish. Warming, borderline burning finish.

Overall: We aren’t in the "easily drinkable" category. A flavorful, but boozy and cloying DIPA. Way too much eucalyptus.

Attractive crystal clear copper with half inch of lasting foam. Aroma is hop heavy, leaning towards the resin/tropical fruit end of the spectrum. Also a pungent spiciness (presumably the rye). Taste has a big grainy kick at the start, and the there’s definitely rye. Pumpernickel beer. Bitter and sweet in balance. Chewy and boozy, alcohol is really pushing into barleywine territory.

Niall73 (2413) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours amber with an off white head. Big sweet bread, toffee, funky fruit lightly nutty aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Sweet ripe trop fruit, toast, marmalade, some pine, candy and a lightly bitter nutty light grapefruit finish. A touch too sweet and sticky but tasty.

Maxbier (803) - Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Clear copper with tan head. Boozy, grassy, some tropical aroma too. Lots of bitterness up front, grassy rye malt sweetness. Concentrated mango peach and pine in the finish. Enjoyable but not at all sessionable. This has to be the only drink of the evening (ok, maybe two).

Copper color, not much head nor much aroma. Great blend of hops and malt though. Some bitterness, then malty sweetness with a finish that is not bitter and doesnt linger.
