Notes/Commercial Description:
Dry, but with a creamy touch of Thai Palm Sugar and the spicy tang of Rye, all balanced by loads of the wackiest new Hops we could lay our hands on. Yep, it’s an Orignal. And that’s no Sin.

12 oz. bottle, with best by date 04/11/2015 printed on the back label. A new one to me from Two Brothers, out of Warrenville, acquired a single bottle of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack at the local Jewel.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a reddish-brown body, with hues of rust orange when in the glass. About a finger of frothy tan head that falls quickly. Leaves lots of sticky scattered lacing behind on the glass. Looks nice for what it is.

S - A pleasant and fruity aroma. Spicy grainy rye malt makes it's initial appearance, followed by lots of jammy / orangey / piney hops. A creamy sweetness imparted from the Thai palm sugar.

T - Bready rye malt with a touch of caramel, and lots of bitter resinous hops. Pine, orange, grapefruit. In all honesty, it seems a bit bland to me. Flavorful, to be sure, but there isn't much going on here to keep me interested. I'm giving it the 4 for quality.

M - The feel is smooth and easy drinking, if even a bit on the watery side of things. Fruity and jammy, with mild hop resins / bitterness lingering on the palate. Very easy-drinking for the moderate 7.00% abv.

Overall, I'm not a very big fan of rye beers to begin with, but this one wasn't terrible, just fairly bland and middle-of-the-road, in my opinion. Easy-drinking, and worth a shot for fans of the style, but it's not something I would return to again often.

Bear Republic's Hop Rod is a solid rival, so if you like it, you'll like this one!

Dark brown in color with great clarity. A fingernail of creamy beige colored head rests on top. Brussels lacing. Intriguing aroma of rye and cane sugar along with piney hops playing more of a background note. The flavor is comprised of rye,cane sugar,and piney hops. The mouth is moderately carbonated and has the sharp edge from the spicy rye.
