750ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Lots of froth and bubbles in the first our. Head slowly settles to reveal a golden amber beer. Hoppy aroma with a very good flavour that lingers in the mouth.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 29, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a cloudy burnt orange color with a two finger foamy bright white head, that slowly dissipates.The aroma has a lot of pine, as well as some biscuit malt and rye notes. Spicy rye bread flavor that is quickly joined by a very pithy bitterness; the combination gets really spicy by mid-palate and the spiciness continues into the finish. Moderate carbonation, creamy medium body with a great drying aftertaste.

Bottle shared at Pibar, Lausanne
Cloudy amber color, with dull hue, and large frothy head (the bottle is a slow gusher). The aroma is very nice, fresh hops, with light spicy character and a touch of cedar. Still too much carbonation, having an impact on the mouthfeel; malt flavor, with strong spicy character, leaning to cardamom and cedar; strong bitterness, with plenty of good hop resins, and some hop fruitiness, bitter oranges; long final.
Complex, not elegant, but very interesting.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Bouteille de 750 ml. Armes de houblons rsineux et de levure plutt phnolique. Robe orange et trs trouble, effervescence active et beaucoup de mousse. En bouche, les houblons sont relativement aromatiques et accompagnent beaucoup de levure plutt phnolique. Le seigle est bien extrait et montre de belles notes maltes et pices. Finale un peu trop amre compte tenu de la grande attnuation. On retrouve galement beaucoup dalcool et quelques notes de solvant. Bof...

DiarmaidBHK (4535) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle from Piggly Wiggly homewood. Pours light brown with a couple of inches of khaki foam. Lots of lacing in the glass. Fragrant pine on the nose. This is aged a bit since Im only getting faint rye and not a ton of pine or citrus on the tongue. Finishes clean. Probably would have been bolder fresher.
