Malty caramel sweetness is combined with a bit of pine and citrus zest. Crisp finish with a bit of hops bitterness. Interesting.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft poured into a giant goblet. Not bad. Lots of rye bread and a little spicy hops. Something is just missing here. It just didnít really do it for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
4.0 A: Moderately hazed orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is pretty good and tons of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Citrusy hops with emphasis on orange, mango, and papaya. Caramel sweetness to accompany the bready maltiness. Not a whole lot of rye in the nose, but enough to add a touch of earthy spiciness. Earthy hoppiness secondary to the citrus and herbal underneath that. Equivalent balance between malts and hops. Good.
3.5 T: Again equal balance between hops and malts. Citrusy orange and mango with earthy undertones. Mild bitterness. Caramel sweetness with breadiness from the malts and yeast. Rye is more apparent in the taste giving the earthy spiciness that it does. Again, good.
4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess and quite smooth.
3.5 D: Quality beer with no real faults, but not really that impressive. I think more rye would have given this more of an edge over a standard IPA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 This would not stop foaming and overflowing from the bottle. Pours dark reddish. Smell is funky an spicy. Simething off about thr flavor without much hop bitterness. Not a huge fan of this one. Seems muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cloudy, orange-brown pour with an off-white head. This one has a spicy aroma with some grassy notes. The medium body has an oily texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a very dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale ale like in aroma, taste and feel. Medium body, crisp and clean. Pours amber with a white head. The aroma is malty sweet with caramel, bread and yeast. The flavor has a nice bite, yet is very smooth and refreshing. A little bit of pepper and a bitter finish. Nice one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is funky with rye bread, spice, herbal grassy hops, and soured compost. The appearance is amber with an explosive head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this beer is no good I think itís infected with brux.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Its a real advance style for the beer drinker. the taste of bread major spiciness and some citrus are very accurate. the beer hits the astringent after a couple of seconds. its very rough with a nice looking color and creamy head. drink with caution.
