12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Best before 7/14 notched.

Pours a hazy/ cloudy deep red, nearly brown color. Decent looking off white almost yellow- brownish head. An average 1/4 inch of head retention and some nice sticky webby lacing.

Aroma is slightly more malty than hoppy, but as it warms this balances out. Woody, Slightly spicey Rye bread, a light sweet caramel malt, dank earthy pellet hop aromas.

Slightly woody, sharp lemon/ grapefruit citrus. Different from the aroma in that it's slightly more hoppy than malty. Dark bread, slightly sweet light caramel malt. Hints of rye spice.

Lighter side of medium bodied. Sharp hop bitterness, but balanced out by a nice maltiness.

Not a bad beer, but nothing mind blowing.

Score updated from 3.62 on 2/16/15. Just cracked open a fresh can and it was so much better than the months old bottle I had previously consumed.

Has a best by date of late 07/14

Appearance - Pours a semi-clear, deep red copper with a near 2-finger khaki colored head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of surface suds. Leaves rings of lacing down the glass, with great stick.

Smell - Hmm, smell is a bit odd. Earth and a light tart tropical fruit; kinda like a pineapple slice that's been rolled around in some dirt. Not a good combo.

Taste - Flavor is a bit hollow; touches on citrus and pineapple hops with a sturdy caramel backbone, but the bulk of the flavor is lost almost as quickly as it hits, leaving behind only faint traces of said character and an almost too-easy-to-miss peppery rye aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Nothing too notable, but a decently smooth drinker.

Overall - Yeah, not feeling it. Seems to lack cohesive flavor, and what is there is quite fleeting. Probably not the best use of mosaic hops, which seemed overwhelmed by the malts... but then those seemed a bit subdued as well. Hmm.
