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.

4/5  rDev -2.2%

Pours dark ruby in color with a crisp off white head and slight carbonation.

Aroma is mildly sweet roasted malt with herbal hops and understated rye.

Taste is bitter with plenty of herbal hop and a dry grainy rye character. Definite malty base that brings sweetness of brown sugar and dark fruit.

Mouthfeel is mildly oily from the resinous hops. very little carbonation.

An interesting beer. Great dry hop character. Rye adds a nice complexity.

A= pours a deeper darker red color with a tiny miniscule head on it almost nothing actually. A small ring around the glass keeps what little head was there and no lacing is present. The head is really dissapointing looking but the color is beautiful.
S= rather sweetly malty smelling. There's a good amount of rye twang I suppose and a smaller than expected hop odor is detected.
T= a great rye taste. The rye actually is more overpowering than the hops which is rare in a rye beer. There's some regular malted barley riding the back but mostly rye twang. There's quite a bit of hops as well but they are only there to complement the delicious rye.
M= really low carbonation which I expected due to the tiny head on it. Really sort of a boring mouth on it.
D= pretty good rye beer. The flavor is awesome. The look and mouthfeel are sub par to average. The smell is decent as well. Clean this beer up and it would be one of the best rye beers you can make.

This brew pours a clear, amber-brown color into my pint glass. A soft white head sits atop and dwindles to a nice lace. Good carbonation, but not too much. The aromas are pleasant. There is a definite hop presence with some citrusy and earthy tones. The malts come out strong in the nose as well. The flavor is pretty solid. It starts with a citrusy hoppy bite, with some subtle floral and earthy notes. This is followed by some caramel flavored malts. The beer finishes with a slightly sweet flavor from the palm sugar. You do get a bit of they rye spiciness in the aftertaste too. The mouthfeel is smooth when it hits the mouth. The beer finishes dry.

Overall a damn fine beer. Nothing out of this world, but definitely something a bit different for the hopheads and pale ale fans. It is pretty drinkable, however the price was a bit steep (12.99 for a 4-pack). I would definitely recommend grabbing a pint sometime. I don't think I'll pick it up again in bottles due to the price though.

Okay, first of all I picked up a four pack of this for $4.99. Went to have a bottle last night and see a best by date of 4/22/09. So my review is not of the freshest bottle, but here it is.

A- pours a deep transparent brown with two finger head of tan suds. Good amount of lacing.

S- Big hops with sweet caramel malt.

T- Some hops and big sweet roasted malt. Heavier on the malt side. Reminds me of a DFH 90 Minute. I'm guessing some of the hops have faded in this one. Some caramel and toffee present. Not bad, but would like bigger hops like a Red's Rye offers.

M- medium bodied, smooth and slightly creamy. Mild chewiness.

D- Pretty good drinkability for a 7% beer. A couple is about all I could do of this. Would like to compare this to a fresh bottle as I really enjoy this style.
