28 sept 2013, bottle. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is soft grapefruit rind hops. Thin almost med body and moderately fizzy. Pleasantly balanced ipa. Grapefruit rind citrus but not very powerful, cereal malt background but not too sweet. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a big spicy rye mixed with a decent hop. Flavor is about the same, a nice rye to start then comes a lingering hop. Widmer really went for the rye in this one and it really works. Just enought spicy rye with a minor piney hop.

12oz bottle 6/17/13 (Binny’s Naperville Mix A Six)-36° in shaker-Pours a clear orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of rye. Taste of hops, malt, pine, and citrus. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down quite easy. Nice brew.

reggiedunlop (3582) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Pours a clear amber/caramel with a medium off white head. Aromas very caramely with mild earthy/rye spice. Flavor follows suit...caramely sweet and doughy but earthy bitterness too. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/rye and bitter/dry.

Draft at F&H Fort Worth. Nice orange color with a foamy white head. Very fruity and piney aroma. Pithy bitterness in the flavor with a long finish. Fine.

Beautiful copper hue; good head retention. Sweet and juicy nose is mouthwateringly inviting. Creamy, smooth and full texture. Toasty-spicy malts. Fantastic hop flavors are just bursting with citrus (grapefruit, tangerine, lemon), sugared spruce tips and sweet grass. Snappy, peppery bitterness with lingering notes of grass in the aftertaste. Tasty IPA. In the series thus far, I think I liked this one better than Falconer’s, but not as much as X-114.

It poured a cloudy amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of pine and some grapefruit. It had a medium mouthfeel with some pine hops and a nice lingering bitter finish. A good IPA.

Terminus (3446) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2012
tap at 1702 Tucson, AZ-pours bright clear orange with a small soapy eggshel head. nose is bright citrus and rye. flavors exhibit the rye more than the hops. this is kind of wierd and not really all that well put together. ok body with a long rye dry finish. a intersting brew but lacks much hops. Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye is way better if you ask me. Maybe i should have had more samples of this brew.

Clear copper color, head that quickly drops to rim, lots of dots of lace. Taste is caramel malt overtaken by cleansing hops. The two move in tandem to the finish. Excellent food beer (especially pizza!), uncomplicated, easy to drink. Recommended.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 07/25/12 Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep amber color with a small, but well sustained head of white foam. The nose has a deep fruitiness with a touch of spicy rye. Slight pine and a touch of plastic. The flavor has a touch of caramel, some earthy pine, and a slight twist of rye. None of the flavors are vibrant and it’s a little lifeless on the tongue. Not bad per se, but lacking personality. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a dull finish. Rather forgettable unfortunately. Update: 01/27/13. 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans. The new label fooled me into thinking I hadn’t had it. Let’s give it another go. Appearance is the same. Nose is light white pine needle and spruce notes with a bread and cracker backdrop. The flavor strikes a nice balance with just enough malt balance and solid hop bitterness the whole way through. Solid pine and resin notes up front, nice herbal punch in the middle with just a hint of mint on the back end. Light toast and rye cracker from the malt side. Definitely better than the first time.
