4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Coppery Amber, very pretty, not much head. The aroma is waaay different than the taste in that it is very malty, almost barleywineish. Big chewey mouthfeel and really nice dry rich complicated body with yeast, spices and citrus. Nice and hoppy... would be an APA for sure but for the rye which lends an earthyness not usually seen in pale ales. I like this quite a bit.

...and Coors has not sued yet?! Big head on amber. Hop aroma and ... maybe .... rye. Bigger body and flavor than just IPA. Rye gives it a little extra oomph. Strong hops, rye character and good body! YUM.

Poured from bottle a slightly hazy amber with a small head. Aroma of barley. Crisp and full on the palette with hints of dough and biscuit. The end is fairly bitter and slightly dry. Excellent! My thanks to a good friend who brought this bottle directly from Texas to Europe for me to taste.
