pours a hazy burnt orange with an off white head and decent lacing. Aromas of citrus,mtropical fruit and caramel. Taste is straight forward citrus and tropical fruit with caramel and a good deal of alcohol. Medium bodied with moderate/high carbonation. Uncomplicated and too boozy.

I need to try it again. Orange copper pour with short lived white head. Aroma is musty grapefruit and pine. Taste is pine and paper, with grapefruit strong at the end. Want to try again, because it seems a bit strange but not in a bad way.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy deep yellow with a sizable head. A wall of lacing all the way down the glass as it’s consumed. Nice hopped up brew but it didn’t seem like a rye to me. Medium mouthfeel and not too dry. Looking forward to another

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium foamy off-white head that slowly diminishes with rings of lacing. The aroma is hoppy with citrus and malt notes. Medium to full body with flavors of piney hops, grapefruit, pear and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering resiny hops aftertaste. I found this in AJ’s marked down area. Good deal!
