Finish is bitter with some herbal, grassy and piney notes, light rye peppery spiciness, some sweet caramel and peach notes. Medium bodied, average carbonation.
Another great rye offering. Big and bold with a great hoppy presence. Probably going to order another!

Sample at Whole Foods, Auburn Hills. Pours slightly burnt red, white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, malt heavy, rye, lots of caramel, orange, toffee. Flavor is caramel, orange, rye, malt. Nice hoppy red ale. smroush (279) - Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2016
Pretty hoppy with spruce and pine aromas. Sweet caramel and bread malts.
Color is a dark reddish brown, with a small off white head.
Taste is fairly bitter but is quickly followed by a nice balancing sweetness. The typical rye wild/rustic flavor is clear but not over whelming.
Medium tons bit full bodied; a long finish, with a very nice combination of bitterness, sweetness, wild rye and yet a touch of dry crispness also. Good mouth feel.
Overall a quite good beer with pretty good complexity- a fair amount going on here. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 8, 2016

Tap. Worthy Burger, South Royalton, VT. Hazy copper colour. Off white, clingy head. No surprises here. Juicy, spicy, soft resin hoppage. Zesty, with soft chew. Easy drinking, albeit a bit thin, maybe. Soft spice bitterness on the close. Ok. smaynard6000 (1164) - Apopka, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2015
