12 oz bottle pours a lightly hazed, dark gold color with a large cap of off-white head. Excellent retention and lacing, good looker!

Nose is tropical and citric hops, Im pretty sure there is some amarillo at work here...or maybe something else equally tropical. Smells good, malt is biscuity with a little zing from the rye.

Taste throws down some more bready flavors akin to a loaf of Jewish Rye. The hops still manage to be the main attraction with a piney-papaya flavor and plenty of bitterness. Alcohol is masked well and drinks pretty fast for a 9%'er. Lots of rye flavor on this one, some beers classified in the 'Rye Beer' style category dont even match this level of contribution from this Eastern European grass crop. Pretty tasty, I wouldnt have a problem buying another 4-pack of this.

Thanks to moose3285 for dropping this into our recent trade involving four boxes & about 96 lbs. of first-class, kick-ass beer...& for continuing to dent my wants list at every opportunity. 12 oz. bottle poured into the pint glass I brought from home to Austin, MN for just this reason.

Pour is golden, clear, foamy. Not sure why expected sediment, but I did. Nose is a lovely soft citrus, sweet & with a hint of spicy jungle dirt to it. Very nice combo shot.

Timber Beast is the start of a new fad, I hope: rye IIPAs. Yes! OK, maybe not. Introduction reads like a piece of rye on the tongue, but it's quickly cut by the big-handed sweetness of the malt, leaving an...interesting impression. No mid-palate, just a quick cut to hops that are lively, bitter, & earthy - or that might be the rye. Still, the ending leaves the tongue mildly bruised, which is quite a contrast to the doe-eyes up front. Very easy on the throat, I'm drinking this like I'm drowning in it. Or maybe I'm just thirsty.

Very interesting beer that veers from pillow-like to jarring in the span of moments & has everything I love...but just doesn't quite capture my upcaste imagination. Very good beer that whispers 'I could be great'.

Pours a hazy dark orange colour, with a tan 2 finger of head. Aroma is zesty citrus notes, flowers, spicy hops and a spicy rye note. Some bread crust in there as well. Prevalent bitterness on the taste with bit citrus notes and an assertive, zesty, spicy rye bite. The spicy hops and rye co-mingle nicely and somewhat intensify the bitterness. It's a good medium body, substantial, with a nice carbonation level.

LM is taking this new elevated ABW law and hitting the ground running. This is a great Rye IIPA! Can't wait to see what they do next!

A: The beer pours a cloudy dark golden body with a thin white head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass as it fades.

S: TONS of piney and slight citrus hops on the nose. There is also a little bit of sweetness hidden in there too.

T: Like the smell, I am picking up a strong amount of hops and and sweet malt. The falvor changes from very hop heavy at first, but then it turns into a sweet malt flavor the longer it lingers.

M: There is a decent amount of carbonation with a strong amount of crispness on the tip of the tongue and the back of the throat.

O: This is a pretty solid beer and for only a dollar a bottle, the price can not be beat. I would for sure come back to this beer again.

Poured from tap into pint at the columbia street taproom, covington, LA. Pours a brownish golden with thick creamy head. Really nice pine, grapefruit, pineapple, hop aromas. So far I'm impressed. Taste is quite nice. Mellow malts but great citrusy pineapple hop flavor. Slight grapefruit and bitter mouthfeel but really tastey. Overall, very surprised this is as good as it is - no offense LM but this is probably the best of your brews I ever had. Great DIPA! I highly reccomend it.
