4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh 2012 bottling. Delicious. Big, balanced, complex aromas and flavors of stonefruit, peach, mango, pine, skunky onion, florals and mild citrus. Wonderful, mildly bitter, lemon rind, ruby red grapefruit, citrus notes linger on the palate. Refreshing, yet full-bodied. Reminiscent of a DIPA and definitely hoppy, as the malt takes a backseat to the hops at this time. Tastes very fresh... as a new batch should. Dare I compare it to Stone Enjoy by 12.21.12... A good brew, which I wish was year-round.

The nose is mild with some initial fruity hop and some pine needle underneath. A weirdly sweet beer. Lots of sugar mixes with a very fruity hop profile, it has apricot, orange and papaya notes. It’s bitterness is pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium, earthy, slightly sour aroma of sweet malts and berries on the background. Golden color with small artificial head and slightly hazy liquid. Medium/strong, slightly sour and complex taste with malts, brown sugar and hops. Some berries. Averagely balanced with wide taste spectrum and long hoppy and malty aftertaste. Medium body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, a bit weird and messy, because has features of different styles.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a bright amber yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is semi-sweet and bready with a hint of pine. Nice body, light and syrupy texture. Full mouth feel. Smooth semi-sweet citrus with only a slight bitterness on the roof of the mouth. Smooth finish with flavors that linger for awhile. Solid and very refreshing and enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.25 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of creamy off-white head. Retention is good and lots of lacing is left.
4.0 S: The grains mesh to make something quite pleasant - earthy spiciness from the rye, grainy barley, oaty oats, and mild neutral wheat. Seems like there’s a lot of rye comparatively, you could comfortably call this a rye brew. Big orange citrusy hops, floral, and spice. Big and powerful. Pretty good.
4.0 T: Tastes like it smells. Tons of earthy spiciness, spicy hops, caramel malts. Again lots of floral and orangy hops. Mild-moderate bitterness. Again, big rye component, which I really enjoy.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasantly creamy and super smooth.
4.0 D: Really nice beer. I can see why so many enjoy it.
