Nothing special. Sticky mouthfeel and pretty dry. Hints of apple. Smell is piney, but muted. An ok rye, but not one for the ages.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Perhaps my very favorite brew currently. An Imperial Pale Ale with a strong spicy flavor and aroma of hops. At 9% alcohol there is no mistaking it’s potency but the brew is so well balanced... full body, medium texture, soft carbonation with a lovely long finish. World class. I highly recommend this to one and all.

Bottle. Taste is bitter citrus, pine needles, yeast and a blend of hops. Nice, boozy finish. Well done.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Decent retention and some good lacing. Smells of very strong sweet malt notes with a slight hop essence. Very sweet from the malt, then the hop kicks in, but not to strong. Long lasting bitterness in the end. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle. A beige thick head leaves light lacing. The beer is cinnamon hued and is quite hazy. First sniff brings tangerine and peaches. The flavor brings mangoes more than tangerine but it is still there. Decent bitterness. Some interesting hop notes. Mid glass I suddenly began to taste rye and the spiciness added a nice aspect to this beer. The finish brings grapefruit and the subsequent bitterness. Good stuff.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin ivory head, with some lacing, over a hazy light amber (SRM 10) body......nose pine, resin, lighter citrus peel, hints of sweet malts,rye spice tones....taste is rye, with rye spiciness, pine, resin, light hints of toffee/caramel, finishing with a lingering hop bitterness......mouth feel medium, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low, with a light acid finish. The hop aromas and flavors are a bit dominant over the rye. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
