3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #879 - January 4, 2013 - 650ml bottle at Metro, 6.9%. This was a deep coppery brown coloured pour with a mild tan foam that faded to a ring. Nose was peach, mandarin orange. Mild alcohol warmth and carbonation.Taste is a mild peppery smokiness from the rye grain, mild toffee and caramel malt sweetness, but a boatload of hop punches, citrusy, grassy. Finishes smooth, nice bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hooray! There’s a date on this bottle!!! Bottled 01MAR12
Pours a light golden beer with a frothy white quilt and excellent clarity. Nose is bursting with tropical fruits of mango, pineapple and then grapefruit comes through slightly sweetened by the malt. Nice nose. Medium bitterness with plenty of fruity hops and some hints of dry and sweet malts. Again, well played Laughing Dog. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a semi dry finish.
Man, I always avoided my local, because they haven’t dated their beers. I have a friend that brews for them and even so, I’ve steered clear unless he’s brought it strait from the brewery. I can this, of the beers I’ve had of theirs, when they’re fresh, they are really, really nice. Hope to see more of this behavior.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle. Hazy like a here with thick clean white head. Even with significant hop scents and taste this beer had a strong biscuity, bready taste up front with just a hint of the rye spice I was expecting. The rye is there but this could easily be enjoyed by someone who is not a fan of rye bread because it is not dominating. Hops bring serious citrus zest without a puckering bitterness.

Golden and cloudy with a thick white head. Bottled on 5/25/12 but it still has a fresh taste. Citrusy and hoppy but not too overwhelming.

Not bad. One I had was bottled June 2012. Would be better fresh. Munich hops appear the strongest aroma wise. Might try the fresher one next time.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty aroma with some wood notes. This follows into the flavor with a fairly light but noticeable dry rye bite. Body is quite light and the hops present as floral and slightly citrusy with lemon notes. Honestly not a lot going on here, but still fairly enjoyable.
