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.

The color is brown, the color of Snapple iced tea, including the foggy character of Snapple. There is some head that developed, which is about a finger high. It dissipates to a fine sticky lace.

Rye malts, pineapple, and pine dominate the nose. 

The taste is malty, sweet (some toffee) and dark fruit dried fruits are present. The hops come in at the end as citrus and floral tones. 

Nicely carbonated, crisp, and well balanced.

A- Garnet with a thin, one finger off white head that stays firm as a slick. A couple wisps of lacing.
S- On the nose, I'm a bit surprised it's a rye beer. It comes through heavy on hops with citrus being front and center. A bit of sweetness on the nose, but it really seems like a lighter IIPA on the nose.
T- There is a bit of caramel malt at first. Actually this beer is very sweet throughout. Fairly soon a big hop kick comes in with citrus and pineapple flavors very heavy. Rye malt is noticable but it takes a backseat.
M- Medium body. The carbonation is mild at first but seems to pick up a lot in the mouth. Very very dry finish, especially given how sweet the beer was.
O- Very good. A big hoppy beer that is complex and I can enjoy these often.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Received this as an extra from Rob in our trade! Thank you!!

A - Pours a deep rich mahogany color. Perfectly clear with a nice 2 finger creamy head which lasts a long while which huge lacing.

S - Huge hop character aroma. You can almost taste the bitterness though the nose. Piney/Earthy hops with a deifnitive rye spice.

T/M - Not what I was expecting, really, but good. It stars out with huge hoppy flavor - more earthy tones than a citrus character. The beer quickly transitions to an almost peppery flavor. A different sort of sweetness in the middle towards the end which melds nicely with a less intense bitterness than I anticipated. A complex flavor that is actually quite smooth with a spicy rye bite - nice! Medium bodied with a nice carbonated body.

D - Very! I didn't notice the alcohol and it went down very easy.

Overall, this is a very good beer and I am very grateful for the chance to sample.

Reddish-mahogany in appearance, with more amber tones on the edges. About half a finger of off-white head. Good lacing and minor retention. Smells good. A musky, grainy earthiness mixed with roasted malt. Not overly pungent, but sufficiently aromatic. Quite a good brew. Initial hop bite that's semi-piney. That gives way to a full malt and rye middle that tactfully builds toward the end. Back end is sharp but creamy and allows the piney hop notes to re-emerge in the mouthfeel. A very flavorful brew that's not boastful. A solid take on the rye ale.

Like It? Very Much So

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle labeled best by 04/21/12.

A- Pours a dark amber, borderline light-brown color. Forms a half fingers worth of head that quickly dissipates. A nice film stays along the top and edge of the glass.

S- Smells lightly of citrus and malts. Some sweet fruits as well.

T- Starts smooth with noticable malts before finishing with the rye spiciness and hop bitterness.

M- Medium bodied, easy to drink, nice hop bitterness at the back of each sip.

A good rye beer, one of my favorites from my local Two Brothers Brewery.

M - Smooth and creamy.

O - Great beer, good balance of sweetness & bitterness.
