3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from blutt59, thanks Bob. He warned me that this was oxidized and graciously sent me a few extras, but lets see how it is anyways. Pours a mostly clear, orange-gold colored body with a dense and frothy, finger-width, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a really nice lacing throughout. Aroma is a lightly sweetened caramel, florals, some bread, a few lemony citruses, a touch of rye spice, and some grass. Flavor definitely has some oxidized aspects, but I can tell that this would make a really nice session beer if it were a better batch. Lemon-grass, some rye, bready caramels with a light sweetness, grapefruit, and florals. Finishes with an increased rye spice, more citrus that gives off a bit of a tartness, and a dry, light-medium bitterness that has just a touch of bready-caramel sweetness to balance. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, a bit oxidized, but I bet a better batch would be pretty solid. Hopefully I can try that some day.

Draft at the Whiskey and Rye in the Omni hotel in Ft Worth The ale had poured with a white frothy head and a clear amber. There was some lacing. The aroma was of mild citrus. This is goof APA with some bitter citrus on the tongue. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The finish was smooth with the normal bitterness of a good pale ale. Tthe bitterness was felt on the top of your mouth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Comes out of the tap a hazy, barely translucent honey golden with an off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is malty, fruity ad slightly yeasty. Flavor has a malty core and notes of apple, banana, yeast and hops. Firm, lively, tingly mouthfeel rounds it out. Will get you a-howlin’!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Pours a semi-hazy copper amber with a 1/2 inch white head that clings to the sides of the glass.
S - Fruity esters, melon, citrus, some bready malt, rye grain comes out more as it warms.
T - Fruity cereal based malt, some soft orange citrus, rye comes through along with a good dose of biscuit, grain and hops. Turns spicy and almost herbal towards the end finishing quite dry.
M - Medium bodied, soft carbonation, creamy lush feel.
The malt and rye are showcased nicely, while the hops round of the flavors and help with the finish. This beer delivers what you’d expect from the label. Well done.
