3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy dark gold with a big fluffy white head and some floaties. Aroma is quite strong. Pine sol and peach up front, light lemon notes and orange rind later. Citrus flavors are intense up front. Lots of orange and lemon again. Slight spice from the rye and some faint floral notes in the finish. Medium-thin body but the carbonation is too heavy. Very distracting. Good but needs some fine tuning.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Semi-cloudy copper color with a small head. Floral aroma with a little hairspray. Sharp flavor of what I assume to be rye and perfumy hops. Average body with a musty aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a sightly hazy golden color with a finger of foam. The nose is a mixture of pine citrus and honeyed malts kissed with a touch of spice. The palate is bright with some good citrus notes that lead into a round malt mid palate and a bitter finish with a touch of rye spice that is well integrated.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Clear, honey-colored. Decent lacing, medium head. Good aroma, a little grainy-sweet, taste matches, but with quite a bit more bitterness at the back. Good taste not overwhelming in terms of rye. Nicely done actually, pretty medium body, not too strong of an aftertaste. Decently well balanced. Not the best rye beer, but far from the worst.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at SBWF 2013.
Dark golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of malt, rye, hops and with a fairly bitter finish. Nothing wrong with this one but it was a bit weaker than expected.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Still alittle hoppy but like the yeast choice for the overtones. Really a nice why to get the rye.
