Judging by previous reviews, the latest incarnation may have been tweeked for the better. I was surprise to find out that Saaz hops are used for the aromatics, as the aroma is predominately pine, with a healthy amount of caramel and a hint of rye. Copper colored and hazy, there was nice head retention and plenty of lace. Big bodied, the flavor was similar in characteristics to the aroma, with a greater amount of rye and good balance between the hops and malt. Medium carbonation.

This is a fantastic beer for an evening when you are feeling the need for hops and want to get your money's worth on the ABV front. What I really enjoy about this beer however is its drinkability. It's not overly hopped and the addition of the rye seems to mellow it out.

The color is beautiful. If you happen to be drinking it where you can let the sunlight kiss the glass you can really see the Vulcan, God of Fire come through.
