Dorwart (2441) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Thin light tan head of fine bubbles that dissipates rather quickly. Sweet and spicy aroma with very little hops presence for a triple IPA. Sticky malts and not much else really. The bottle says 2015 vintage but I am wondering when this was bottled and if it has lost all its hops aroma. Maybe some ginger in there. Color is a dark copper brown. Harsh bitterness up front with lots of roasted grains, tea leaves, caramel and some strong herbal flavors. Some dryness from the rye. Alcohol presence is less than expected for a 10+% brew. Finishes sticky sweetness and herbs. Totally not what I expected and rather disappointed from a brewery I really admire.

decaturstevo (5457) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is light caramel malt and resiny hops. Flavor is sweet bready malt and a good citrus bitter. Medium body with good carbonation. A really solid beer

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
Bouteille, 2014 vintage. Orangée-cuivrée, col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme, on y retrouve le côté très Terrapin Rye de base, certaine épaisseur plaisante du seigle et un bouquet agréable de houblons. Palais est épais avec pas mal de seigle et houblons. Pointe épicée du grains, palais restant crémeux et onctueux avec un ajout houblonné de type C. Résineux perçant bien, malt perdure sur la fin apportant une note caramel et légèrement collant aux lèvres.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2015
12oz bottle. Poured a cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Rye, spicy, some earthiness and some citrus. Overall, alcohol content well hidden.

Appearance. Hazy orangeish light brown. Small head, thick lace. Aroma is tropical fruit, mango, sweet potato, . Taste is sour grape, yeast, ash, apricot. Strange combination. Some tasty, but it doesn’t all mesh very well. Feel is watery, Low carbonation. Ok.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2015
Sample at the Jackie O’s Staff Bottle Tasting Part 1 on 04/11/2015. Murky brownish-gold color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and rye. Full-bodied with flavors of spicy rye, caramel malt and citrusy hops. The finish is moderately bitter with a rye and hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

kevinsenn (1468) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch, and marshmallows. Caramalt flavors with some spice and fruity hops. On the sweet side; more ibus would help. Still good.

jgb9348 (5096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Deep hazy copper and bronzed coloured body, all with a thinnish, single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pungent rye grain with a very resinous and piney hop bite, some caramel and apricot sweetness and a lot of deep malt scent as well - very pungent. Full-bodied; Very dense flavour of rye, pine, grain, honey, figs, alcohol and pears - strong and pungent throughout. Aftertaste shows a good rich flavourful beer with a lot of rye noticeable, some light oak and dry herbal notes and a pungent hop bite showing mostly resin and pine. Overall, a well-balanced beer showing a ton of rye characteristics and perhaps even more sweet notes from honey and fruits, but the hop bite is still present and pungent - nicely layered throughout and not missing a beat. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom, Eye Street NW), D.C. on 27-August-2014 for US$3,49 sampled at home in Washington on 20-February-2015 just before leaving for the south for a weekend.
