4.46/5 rDev +9.9%
Had this in an Indian restaurant in Wisconsin of all places. This is a complex beer, both hoppy and malty. It's incredibly full-bodied, but the alcohol is masked well. Not too much citrus, but the IPA presence is well felt. Some similarities with the basic taste of a Scotch Ale. Excellent beer!

A: Ruby amber body with a pretty tan head, good lace and nice head retention.
S: Rye, grain & caramel malty aromas.
T: Malt forward front end. A melange of hops finish dry, clean and bitter.
M: A very well-balanced brew that is equal parts malt and hops and as a result is bittersweet.
O: A thoroughly enjoyable Multi-faceted complex yet cohesive brew.

Pours a rusty amber color with a dark red-orange glow. Head sits with coarse composition. Lots of haze.
Sweet caramel meets spicy rye and a heap of pine and pithy citrus hops. Huge malt base comes off like a barleywine. Notes of treacle blend with a hint of papery oxidation.
Might be just a snag past its due date, but it's still a punchy rye DIPA with a bruising hop attack and middle and latent spiciness. Great Simcoe/Amarillo bite with piquant pine, pith, and dank citrus. Rye malts loom large with a sandy spice and depth. Alcohol is also sweet and covered up remarkably.
Oily mouthfeel with a buzzing carbonation. Spicy on the tongue with great weight.
