22oz bottle. Poured a hazy dark amber color with a small sized off white head. Caramel, dark fruitiness, rye, and a rye spicy finish. thedm (6177) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2017
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation body very hazy orange brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was rice. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium rye aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet hops malt and rye. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Aroma is Belgian yeast and fruity hops (melon, pineapple, green apple). Pretty dark golden color with a cream colored cap of foam. Tastes dank and somewhat Belgian with tropical hops and a melon like aftertaste. Like a Tripel with an amped up hop profile. Aftertaste is honeydew and dank earthy hops. Palate is dense yet slick and smooth with low carbonation. This is very easy to find where I live, fairly inexpensive and very good. trapped (3147) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 23, 2016
Draught @ Albion. Clear dark amber with small frothy beige head, faint vanilla aroma, low carbonation, medium bitter caramel-vanilla and bacon taste, alcohol undertones, smooth body, longish bitter caramel finish. Interesting, a bit on the bitter side. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2016
bottle - Pours amber with a big, off-white head. It smells of citrusy hops and caramel malt. The flavor is similar along with some bready character, earthiness, and rye. Full bodied, it’s bitter but not as bitter as many IIPAs, probably because of the heavy malt bill. Very good.

The aroma is yeasty and sweet with citrus good. The appearance is amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall powerful but not that fun to drink. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2016

APPEARANCE- light, amber color. nice head & lacing
NOSE- distinctly Belgian style scent.
FLAVOR- definitly an IPA, and definitly some Belgian yeast contributions. The rye really comes through on this more than most rye IPAs or other beers that use rye. Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2016
