3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
20 Mar 2014, bottle. light ruby, clear, occasional steady bubbles. nose is peaches, bitter grapefruit, faint rye malt. thin/med body and mildly fizzy. rye malt is rather tame with no real bite. peach isn’t as noticeable and grapefruit citrus is tame. this is decent, but the excitement you expect from a heavily hopped rye ipa doesn’t deliver.

Pours a reddish copper with great head. Piney, dank aroma with passionfruit and rye. Subtle rye and caramel malts on the taste with a very mellow bitterness on the finish.

Brown-reddish pour with a thin, but good looking, tan head. Aroma is malty caramel with lots of pine. Malty flavor, middle is a bit spicy, more piney hops, sweet, sticky finish. Woodsy, earth finish. Nice body, interesting hop profile.

Poured from a 12oz bottle I got in a trade, thanks Devin! Aroma is pine, huge rye, and caramel. Flavors are pine, little bit of citrus, lots of rye, and caramel. I like this beer but the rye really drowns out the mosaic hops.

Tap at Mellow Mushroom Franklin; reddish brown in color with a piney nose. Great lacing. Somewhat dry and tasty. A little light but definitely above average.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red/amber pour with an off white head. Hoppy aromas of pine and earthy tones. Flavor is full on spicy rye with plenty of hops in the background. Interesting brew, intense on the palate though.

Bottle. Pours a subdued red with good lacing and minimal head. Aroma is slight mosaic hops and tons of rye malts. Why are there so many fucking rye malts? Fuck.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful clear amber with a very dark ruby background. However, the final pour from the bomber is almost opaque with flocculants. Full head and lacing that has very good retention. The nose is a bit subdued, but is toffee, caramel and biscuit over slight alcohol and dark fruit notes. The body is medium and somewhat slick with a normal level of carbonation. The flavor profile is complex, balanced and laid back - it’s there, but doesn’t hit you in the face. This quite drinkable ale begins with the flavors of the nose then flows to the spice characteristics of the rye and mosaic hops. Bitterness is almost imperceptible, but of a citric nature. The finish is clean, not quite crisp, but leaves no aftertaste beyond a few seconds.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Some fruity hops but the rye grain isn’t as prevalent here as in other rye pale ales I’ve had recently. Pours cloudy maroon with good head and lacing, especially on cask. Finishes with light bitterness. Cask at Rustico.
