Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2006
Great looking pour, a reddish-orange body with a Huge off-white head that coated the glass with thick lacing. This thick DIPA has quite a strong grapefruit and pine aroma with some fruit flavored caramel that works its way out once the head subsides somewhat. The flavor is big but more balanced than the aroma, the caramel becoming almost chewy. There’s still plenty of hop bitterness, but the malt tones it down. Both peppery and bitter on the tongue, the finish is a decent (to a hop-head) amount of grapefruit and earthy bitterness. Not bad at all.

For some reason I think there’s probably very few on the site who know who Lenny Bruce is, let alone remember him at all. Still, a solid tribute to the man.

Bottle. Pours a ruby copper body with a small white head. Strong Ale-like aroma consisting of resinous grapefruit hops and dark sugar caramel. Bitter flavour with lots of bread astringency and alcohol. The finish is a tad rough due to the heat but there are some positive bitter rind flavours. Maybe a bit TOO over the top.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - DEC 23, 2006
Thanks to Juancho who brought all the way down to El Salvador from NY. Great pour with a nice medium head, and a beatiful caramel/coffee color. As a coffee lover, I definitely tasted coffee notes which were accentauted by the strong but not overpowering hops. Really nice.

Red copper. Thick head. Even lacing. Chewy hop aroma prophesies a solid but not overpowering hoppy beer. Thick syrupy hop flavour. Thick body. Hop finish. Solid and delicious, rich in hop flavour.

bomber. Deep amber/copper with ruby highlights. small to medium off white head. Aroma is lots of citrus, rye, and pine. Taste is citrus, rye, with a slight piney bitterness that last throughout the taste. Alot of caramel and malts are also evident. Full, slick mouthfeel. very nice.

I had this on-tap at the 1850 Landmark Inn in Milwaukee. I had sampled this beer (more than once, actually) at the GABF, and it was the best rye beer I had there. However, I still prefer Founder’s Red Rye, although this beer is very good. It was served in a tulip glass and was a reddish brown color with two fingers of white head. Maybe it was the glass, but this beer had almost a cabernet wine sort of color to it, which was appealing. The smell hoppy, without a lot of maltiness that you might expect from a beer made with rye. But the rye was evident in the taste, but not to the extent that is in Red’s Rye. I felt that more rye taste may have made this beer taste a bit more balanced. The hop bitterness was good, and pretty untamed due to what I perceived as a lack of malt balance. Mouthfeel was good...not too sticky but also not watery. Drinkability was also decent. This beer has a high enough ABV that you’re well-advised to not go slugging down 16 oz at a time, but I could have multiple 8-10 oz servings of this beer. All in all, I’d recommend it.
