Beautiful copper color with tannish white head that disapates somewhat quickly. Aroma of malty rye. Flavor is a bready, spicy rye with floral hops. Fantastic.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark golden/chestnut, slight thin head, nice lacing. Aroma nutty, slight roast, fresh rye, slight caramel malt, no real hop aroma detected. Taste spicy rye up front, nutty and roast, caramel malt in background, slight earthy hops, a tiny bit of citrus detected as well. Mouthfeel on the thin side of medium body lowish carbonation, spicy bite, slightly dry finish. Overall good beer, interesting, but not enough to want to seek out.

[Bottle] Deep brown color with quickly receding light brown foam on top. Aroma is of sticky malts with a touch of rye spiciness. Taste includes rye, brown sugar, burnt caramel malts, earthy hops and light cocoa notes. Mildly astringent. Medium bodied. Not bad.

From a bottle this is a big dark looking thing, a little darker it could be a black ipa. Taste is big nasty nellie hop and rye bullshit taste bud smasher. Are you sure this is 5.8%, seems like a lot more. i think it makes me a little dizzy with the big gulps or is that just the IPA attitude smacking me in the back of the head? Long bitter, ruin my taset bud numbness for an hour. wew Can’t appreciate these beers that are so IPA. The next ubiquitous beer, IPA and IPA wannah beez.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a big, dense creamy beige head. Roma has obvious notes of rye, along with caramel malt and citrus hops. Upfront flavor is all malt with more obvious rye and bittersweet roasted caramel. Spicy citrus hops emerge in the mid taste, along with notes of nuts and mustard seed. Complex and flavorful with a medium body. Finish is dry and chewy.
