GLBN IPA Challenge 2011, murky somewhat dirty copper pour. sweet fruity malts and medium hops fill aroma. Buttery caramel, toffee maltiness, light bitterness. OK

Lots of rye in the nose, spicy and grainy, fruity, light tropical notes, a little citrus. Pours amber, no head or lace. The flavor is spicy with rye up front, caramel, fruity sweetness, some residual sugars, light citrus, and juicy fruit hops. Maybe a little too sweet for my liking, a little under carbonated and flabby at times. Not as good as the original offering. Thanks mj for adding this so I can tick stuff.

3fourths (9213) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2011
draft. chestnut brown body with red tinted edges. small, fast-dissipating tan head. crusty bran and bread crust nose with medium seed/rye spice and medium-heavy caramel. aroma hops seems mild and subdued, like the fruit and pine youd expect are smothered by the the rye and malt. medium-full body with more chewiness than I prefer.
