Bottle. Aroma is of subtle hops and some fruit. Taste is very refreshing with a lot of citrus. The rye comes through as well. A twist of a beer flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In short: A very straightforward honeyed rye beer. I like rye beer.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving it from TURDFERGUSON, thanks a lot Sam
The look: Almost clear dark blonde body topped by a very small white head
In long: Nose is unmistakably rye with a true rye bread aroma. Taste is smooth and straight forward, this is a not very hoppy rye ale like a Founders Reds Rye, Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye or a Terrapin Rye Squared (to name a few well known ones). This is a straightforward rye beer with a mild citrusy hopping. A bit of honey and some floral hops, smooth carbonation. Overall this is as straightforward of a rye beer as one can imagine, except that it is a bit on the sweet side with a strong honey presence. I liked it because I like rye beers but don’t expect anything more than a beer that tastes like rye. Oh man I love drinking beer… but why does my favourite hobby has to also be my worst habit?

22oz bomber courtesy of PaulUnwin. hazy orange in color. malty, citrus hops with some rye in there. hops hit your tongue from the jump with some nice fruit flavors, slightly bitter with the sharpness of the rye present. good mix between the hops/rye. unique brew using rye, thanks Paul!

I Reckon drowland sent me this fancied beer! The whole philanthropic kid’s camp theme on the label is certainly a departure from the urban dictionary style labels I’m used to from Sweetwater.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a small head that leaves the glass lightly laced.

The aroma is fruity with some lotion and soap up front and a caramel character that is verging on unpleasant but thankfully steers clear. This beer smells really nice and is generally all about fruit forward hops, the way I described it in my notes makes it sound like it smells awful, but it doesn’t... it’s lotion-y, soapy, caramel-y, and fruity in the best ways possible... kinda weird.

The flavor is mildly sweet with tons of peachy and apricot fruitiness. The beer is very hop forward but just mildly bitter, the bitterness that’s there goes a long way in the balance of the beer.

Almost like a rye IPA but not quite, a very different take on the "rye beer" thing, delicious.

Bottle: Poured very hazy orange with a one finger head. Hop forward citrus aroma. Caramel malt mixes well with a rye sharpness, and piney hop flavors, with a slightly fruity and sweet end. Good body.
