Definitely no joke on the fruity & vanilla. It’s almost overpowers this if you ask me. It’s alcohol under vanilla and a touch of hops. Definitely complex but not my personal favorite.

On tap. Copper color with an average off-white head. Aroma is of light grass, light citrus, grain, an light honey. Taste is of honey, grain, vanilla, light citrus, toast, and a hint of star fruit.

Smells great, tastes better. Light on the IPA side of things. Reminds me of Hopaluia that is brewed in my area.

American rye, sweet like an imperial up front, light rye aftertaste, dark amber color, has an oak flavor which blends nice with hops.

Good aroma, but something isn’t right? Then, you drink it and the rye flavor is spectacular.

Impressive exotic beer. Wonderful spent grainy, barley, sugar, nutty aroma with rye notes as well. Smooth body and not fizzy. Very sweet but not artificially so. Nutty, rather malty flavor with a little rye bite. Nice unusual drink.

Rated based on notes taken 22 Feb 2012 -- Drank in Dayton, OH. A very good rye beer. Would like to drink again for sure.

Pours a hazy amber color with a nice white and that leaves strands of lacing behind. The rye complements the grapefruit in the aroma to produce a grainy, citrusy blend. After establishing the cane sugar backbone, the bitter flavors take over with pine, grapefruit and rye grain. Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation. Good but uninspiring.

Bottle at Swan and Dolphin, Orlando, 10th November 14. Pours reddish brown, aroma is decent, not so hoppy, I don’t get simcoe. Taste is OK not too smooth, slightly heavy, drinkable, not great

Nice. Dark brown red pour. Grapefruit and rye bread aroma. Strange but not bad. Taste has more vanilla and caramel. But still has nice bite from rye and hops. Mid to high level sweetness. Not your typical fare. Good stuff.
