A pale ale, more bitter than I care for.
Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence.

Poured into a perfect pint.
3.75 A: Clear yellow orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy/foamy white head. Retention is very good and a decent bit of lacing is left.
3.75 S: Dirty spicy earthiness in this. Rye runs the show. Touch of grassy hoppiness. Planky woodiness.
3.5 T: Like the nose, lots of rye earthiness. Grassy, woody, dry hay. Crisp toasty maltiness.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slight creaminess and plenty smooth.
3.5 D: Not bad. Nothing special, but it’ll scratch the rye itch.

Madtree sprye is a medium amber beer with a thin white head. Nose is light floral hops. Body is lively. Taste is light floral hops and a bit of light malt. mikesaum (712) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Drank from can, aromas of slight spicy rye and floral hops. Taste is malty, a bit of spce kick from the rye and grassy hops that finish it off with a lingering bitterness and dry finish. Nice and refreshing, just not too memorable. nathan30533 (1022) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Middle of the road. Just not what I expected. Full of malt flavor and lacking hops.

Glass: Duvel tulip.
Appearance: The head is huge, erupting from the body, creating a foamy white head. The body is sparkling with a clear golden hue.
Aroma: Very fragrant aroma from the moment I popped the can, cantaloupe and honeydew initially, but now floral notes and mango are present, backed by caramel and perhaps diacetyl.
Taste: Crisp body with rye malts prominent, diacetyl prominent and grassy and floral hops trying to balance out the sweetness. Not cloying but diacetyl is more than present.
Palate: Crisp bodied.
Overall: The aroma promised heaven, but I was left with something just average. I love the crispness of the body, but MadTree should move away from this yeast strain, it’s no good for them.
Pour out of 12 oz can, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of rye, spice, lemon into a bit of orange, bread, biscuit into a bit of nice pine. Taste was a mix of lemon,grass, bready, toast into a bit of grain, slight orange into a bit of spice, finishing slightly bitter, slightly dry. Very nice and refreshing. mrohia (283) - Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2015
BW3, Dayton, draft. Golden and cloudless. White head. Crisp. Not overpowering in any way. Slightly tart. Good session IPA.

Clear gold with a white head. Nice citrus and grassy hops with a solid rye bite. The aroma is a tad sweeter than it tastes though there is some light malt sugars in the flavor, too. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. Thin bodied. Very refreshing. I’d have a few of these in a sitting. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2015
In the can @ home, thanks to michcam for sending! Pours a clear golden orange appearance with an off white head. Aroma is fairly floral and herbal with some spice, toasted bread, and light citrus. Mouth feel is a little watery and thin. Low sweetness. Moderate high bitterness. Spicy malts, twangy, rye, and some pine. Bleh.
