Poured from 22 oz. bottle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium nut brown color with a small foamy tan head that lingered but left minimal lacing. The aroma was fruity and floral hops with a touch of pine and perfume. The flavor was dryish and astringent with a sour piney presence, perfume, floral hops and a hint of pepper. Very long very astringent finish of perfume and floral hops. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bottle served in a Great Divide cervoise.
A: Pours a semi clear reddish amber color with a creamy, off-white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick film that leaves stick sheets of lace down the glass.
S: Definitive rye on the nose with some grassy and spicy notes to it. Light citrus grapefruit with some herbal and piney notes.
T: Lots of rye spice with a cracker malt sweetness. Grassy herbal from the rye I’m missing that distinct Mosaic hop character. It’s all but faded at this point. Just a light piney note remains. The finish has this off-putting iron like quality to it as well.
M: Medium low carbonation with a medium body. Odd finish.
O: The hops have all but faded and the rye was too dominate. The off-putting metallic finish didn’t help at all.
Serving type: bottle
