Appearance: Clear dark amber rocky off white head good lacing.

Aroma: Hop forward tropical fruit and pine sol. Some nutty spicy malt character in the back as well.

Flavor: Pretty intense rye spice and pine. I do usually like this comb, but both are a bit more astringent than I recalled in previous batches.

Mouthfeel: Dry with a lingering hop and rye bite.

This a VERY GOOD RYE beer.
I still like Rasta Rye the best.
Although this beer is a little stronger and a little too much rye and hops.
Still a great beer.
I WILL BUY AGAIN.

Reddish hued with a nice foamy head that sticks around for the duration. Sort of flat in the smell category. Nice rye backbone propping up some adequate hops. Sticky feel that needs a little more carbonation.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an iced tea color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, citrus. Taste is of hops, rye, some citrus, a strong malt backbone. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

A nice lookin' dark copper/read ale with a light tan head. Mild fruity note upfront but not as potent as I would hope. I love the smell imparted by Mosaic hops, so I was a little let down on that front. After a few sips, I can say that there might not be enough carbonation, which might be why the hop smell is muddled.

Nice, toasty malt profile. Some sticky chew to it mid-palate. Hop profile is fruity, as one would expect with 100% Mosaic hops. Citrus and earth. Bitterness is nice, not too astringent or pungent, making this easy to drink. Subtle spice in the finish. Medium-bodied. Balanced.

I love the way it looks and it tastes decent but the taste and experience would be improved with more hops upfront.

Found this as a six pack of cans. Can is pretty cool looking.

Drink before 6/5/15. 12oz can poured into a pint

A- pours a clear amber color with a small creamy off-white head that reduces to a thin layer skimming the top that retains for a while

S- Earthy & leafy hop aroma up front with notes of pine, red berries, grapefruit & mango. Slightly bready malt with some spicy rye on the close

T- earthy hop flavors start up front with notes of pine and citrus quickly following. The rye adds some nice spicy notes before a bready malt undertone closes it out slightly sweet

M- medium body with medium prickly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a crisp finish

O- the aroma was more complex than taste, but still a well balanced IPA
