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.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Muddy red, almost chestnut in color. Frothy, two-finger light beige head that leaves a thick, sticky lacing.

Nose is pine, caramel sweetness, and a touch of grassiness.

Taste follows the nose pretty well. An initial, fleeting sweetness gives way to some nice hop flavor and bitterness. Sweetness comes around more as the beer warms, and I begin picking up some hints of tobacco.

Medium body and carbonation, the hop resins seem to coat the tongue. Fairly dry finish.

I could drink several of these in a sitting. Overall very well balanced, and the ABV seems to be hidden fairly well.

Served on-draught into a Flying Dog pilsner glass in St. Paul, Minnesota. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger head of fair cream, good thickness, and decent retention. Colour is a dark nontransparent amber.

Sm: Cream, toasted malt, and very light caramel. Maybe butterscotch. A mild strength aroma.

T: Lovely toasted malt foundation. Some nice cream and butterscotch tones lie atop. Fairly complex. Well built and pretty well balanced.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Somewhat tingly. A bit too thick. Pretty complementary of the flavours.

Dr: Pretty drinkable, but it costs a lot. It isn't as unique as it should be. Hides its ABV well. For a rye beer, it's not bad.

Pours a a murky, brownish-amber color with a small off-white head that disappears quickly. Scent is very sweet with some lovely hop aromas. Sweet caramel malt as well. Somewhat piney. Maple syrup? Taste is immediately caramel malt with some delicious rye flavors. Great hops balanced with rye and sweet malt. A bit of honey and citrus. A lot of pine. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, well carbonated, with a somewhat sticky finish. Drinkability is high. Overall, I really wish there were more rye beers. This is a great one.
