3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of TheHOFF43. 12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body that has amber hues and supports a thin tan head. The modest aroma offers up ripe red grapes, raspberry gummy bears and some malts, a dash of pine and a sense of earthy tea well off in the background. The taste delivers slivers of malt sweetened fruity hops that are like the nose sort of ripe juicy red grape like. It then moves into a moderate level of resiny pine hop bitterness mixed with malts and a mild drying earthy tea sensation. Tasty indeed.

Great aroma of hops, dried fruit, and a trace of citrus. Great taste, of fruit and nuts with just a hint of bitterness. A creamy slightly bitter palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weird beer. Has slight pleasant hints of peach, perhaps, and a bit of spice from the rye but the finish is harsh and I’m not sure why but theres an unpleasant flavor from the weird sweetness midpalate.

This one poured a hazy orange color with a beige head. Aroma was of grassy and fruity hops, toasted malt, and caramel. Flavor was similar, some rye, mosaic wasnt represented here very well really.

Last night with Matt. Nice rye, decent hop kick with plenty of malt character. Had this late in the night so my palate was pretty beat up, I'd like to try it again.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of Homer 321, I believe. Thanks! Dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. A fair amount of toast and cracker in the nose along with some spicy, herbal hops. Kind of chewy, goopy malty flavor. Hops are kind of dull. Herbal, piney notes. Moderate to high sweetness. Moderate bitterness. This may be a touch old, but I’m still not a huge fan.
