Tap at the source. Pours clear dark amber with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is pine, earthy and citrus hops with spicy rye malt, peach and pear esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, sweet malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle pour orange golden color. Nose spicy hop, floral and a hint of tropical fruit. Taste, decent bitter up front. Mid palate sweetness and a bitter finish. Not as spicy as expected for a rye, but decent drinking beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from Growlers. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of sweet caramel,sharp orange citrus, hihints of spicy rye with a bigger bite to the finish. This is more malt forward and could pass as an American barley wine. Pretty tasty and a surprise treat at the beach.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Amberish, dirty yet fiery, large sudsy tannish head, nice lacing.   Big sweet citrusy nose, candied citrus peel, citrus zest, and some sweet candied fruitiness.   Oh man, smells delish!   Smooth maltiness
up front, bitter yet somewhat sweet, citrusy, bitter, but not over the top.   Slight earthy background, but minor.   This one is too easy to drink.   Bitterness isn’t overwelming, nice big citrus background, sweet, candyish,
and full of tropical fruitiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Clean finish, moderate bitterness, pithy, citrus zest, but also candyish.   Has a lingering earthiness that I could do without, but otherwise this
is rather respectable.   9% ABV?   Dranks pretty good!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great label, standard US longneck, hazy apricot brew with a huge white head. Bristly, candied pineapple aroma with some chemical rye tones. Woody, tangy, moderately sweet, rye twang, medium heavy bittering. Medium body, good carbo, chemical finish, long west coast bitter finish. I’m ready for the weird IPA thing to fade away. ABC Liquors, Betton.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma of malts and some zesty hops. The taste is similar, way more hoppy than I expected. Has a bit of caramel sweetness to the flavor along with some slight spice. Overall this is a solid brew, one that I can highly recommend. A bit of a watery finish, not as strong as I’d like. But hot damn this goes down smooth considering the abv. 9% alcohol.
