Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #51 (April 2011):
Part of their “Monster Beer Tour,” a massive Pale Ale with rye. This beer shows its girth from the pour right away; carbon- ation is low but enough to form some sticky lacing. Better off, as higher levels of carbonation in a rye beer tend to make things explode. Hint of caramel but more toasty, biscuity malt to meet up against the hops and alcohol; very aromatic. Creamy thick body, smoothness rides over the top. Flavors clash, but are all happily contrasting complexities. Maltiness tries to go sweet but is stopped by the spicy rye. Hop bitterness strong-arms the beer around but lends some citric juiciness, and the alcohol bites the palate but leaves a trail of ripe fruit. An “in your face” type brew, not for the faint of heart.

On tap @ Taco Mac - Decatur, GA
A- Hazed reddish copper with some lacing, you can almost see the thickness of this brew.
S- Sweet and spicy aroma, no this is not Pan-Asian cuisine. Lots of malt sweetness in the nose.
T&M- Malty sweetness, mildy crisp with in a thick body. Hop petal flavor with a light bitterness. Lots of toasted malt with a thick spicy rye character. Finishes sweet with a warming alcohol.
Nice! I could sit down with this one for a while and sip it away. But after one I had to go to something else as the sweetness was too much IMO.
