tightslice (203) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is spiced malts, banana, caramel. Taste is big, sweet, spicy malts up front with bitter rinds on the finish. Amazing, rich and complex.

MadRobin (1964) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Very hazy, orangish rusty brown with a 2-finger khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of toffee, pine, caramel, tropical fruit, floral hops and rye. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, orange, pine, toffee, tropical fruit and rye. Tons of malt, tons of hops and plenty fruit all blend together in a nice balance. Medium/full body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smooth finish. Was nice that the rye did not over power the flavor. I like a lot of hops so this was a good choice. Smaltz recently opened a brewery near me so I will probably taste them all.

pkbites (688) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. Gorgeous light cola brown pour with brown head. Caramel and fruity nose. Rye is present but not heavy handed. Creamy, malty, fruity, and caramel palate with only a moderate rye flavor. This is a good thing as rye can overpower sometimes. High alcohol content is not really detected. me like!

AirForceHops (3225) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 27, 2014
12 oz. bottle, Purchased at Julio’s Liquors and received the Wild Six. Darker copper color with thin head in the snifter. Aroma is a pleasant fruit hop note initially followed by a nice rye and rounded by light caramel malt notes.

Oh YEAH! The flavor shows a nice rye presence through out the sip with a underlying fruit hop that transitions into a pine in the finish. The bitterness is a lingering pine with the fruit there put forward and giving way to the pine. Sweetness from the malts make this still on the balanced side. Overall this is a well balanced as described "bittersweet" piney, fruity with a light toffee/ caramel sweetness. Very nicely done, delightful to drink.

MunBro (375) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Aroma of rye and hops. Not a huge fan of the rye which is probably why I am not enjoying it as much. Nice malt and hop flavours though.

closey22 (904) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Amber with lasting thin rimming offwhite head; aroma is slightly hoppy slight malty; Flava is rich blend hops malt and smoke; feels light to medium decent foamy fizz; finishes dry slightly tart and dry

HomerBeerOdysy (18) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2014
APPEARANCE - Transparent coppery red. 5-finger head that lasts awhile. Some lacing. SMELL/AROMA/SCENT - Very aromatic. I could smell it from 3 ft. away. Strong piney, just a little sweet. Herbaceous. TASTE - Piney, herbaceous, cloves, rye bread. ABV very well-hidden. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Light and dry, with very good carbonation for a high ABV brew. Well balanced. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - This is the Levy’s Jewish Rye of IPAs. Magnificent resiny aftertaste that stays with you. A very drinkable ale. You can guzzle this one (if you dare).
