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.

Tried this beer at the Happy Gnome in St. Paul MN recently - a very nice Rye Beer with a taste common to Amber Ales which I like ... I bought 4 bottles of this beer today at the four firkins in St. Louis Park MN ...

This beer has a bit of hoppyness and tastes to me like a bit lighter version of Surly Furious.

I would have this beer again.

4.1/5  rDev 0%

a: dark orange amber, nearly opaque, hazy, clearly unfiltered, tan head

s: spicy, slightly fruity with dominant malt aroma

f: spicy, malty sweet, slightly fruity flavor with a bit of a rye bite, malt dominates

m: creamy, medium body, lightly carbonated, clean sweet finish

o: I think spicy, malty when I drink this beer. It is sweet and overbalanced to the malty side but none-the-less complex and quite nice. My bottle is marked "best by 6/28/11" and it seems fresh. Thanks Two Brothers!

3.93/5  rDev -4.1%

A: Pours a dark, cherry red color with a 3/4 - 1" opaque head. Sticky lacing covers the sides of the glass.

S:Hops on the nose, bready and some malt characteristics come through.

T: Malty sweetness balanced by the bittering hops, hint of warm alcohol on the finish.

M: Smooth mouthfeel that is evenly carbonated.

D: Very nicely balanced red ale with distinct hop flavor. Pretty drinkable for 7%. Almost a session beer, but a little heavy on the bitterness.

Every time I drink this beer I find something new to love. I don't know what they put in there, but I wish they would distribute in in Vermont so I didn't have to drive all the way to Chicago for it.

The color is orangey-amber, like butterscotch sundae topping. The head is thick and white and you could float a quarter on it.

It smells like citrus and pine. The body is huge, and the flavors- well, like I said, I seem to find something new every time. I swear I detected a note of cantaloupe in the last one. This is a big, bitter, fruity and delicious beer. A great way to introduce a newbie to IPAs because it doesn't smack you in the face.

Poured into a goblet, thin head with lacing all around. A very deep red color with a piny nose. Body is thin, good amount of hop presence but in a nice balance, not too overpowering. The spice of the rye and sweetness of the palm sugars add complexity. A very enjoyable beer overall.

I thought this was a wonderful beer. The beer poured wonderfully into a pint glass, and the head stayed on the glass nicely. The smell was flawless; awoke the nose without overpowering my palate. The first taste produced a wonderful coating in my mouth. A very lively beer, yet stayed right where it should. The hoppiness remained constant, and yet added to finding other notes in the beer as the glass progressed. A wonderful selection to pair with a veggie burger.

3.38/5  rDev -17.6%

S- 22 ounce bomber bottle
A- a nice reddish, almost light caramel color
Smell- citrus, with almost orange juice type aroma
Taste- really taste the hops, some what pine taste, strong flavor
Mouth feel- light
D- not my favorite type of beer, hence the rating. If you like "hoppy" ales this is the one for you. great example.

12oz bottle poured into a goblet.

Nice 1/2CM tan head. Dark dark red. Dark Ruby red and translucent when held up to a light. I'm talking ruby red like the gemstone, not like Dorothy's shoes. Light lacing.

Rich deep caramel aroma. Very pinous hoppy smell. Not overwhelming, but very inviting. Almost sense a little vanilla aroma

Malty sweetness, rich flavor very sweet. Lots of hops but not over-powering. A nice balance with the malt.

Great thick mouthfeel, like I was actually drinking something with substance. Almost creamy, a pleasure to drink. Doesn't feel like a 7.0% beer, I think I'll have another.

4.05/5  rDev -1.2%

Looks: A very nice Orangy-Amber color, no or little sediment so far as i can see. A little head, not much but a nice lasting lace.

Smell: Has a strong carmel/toffee sent. Smells much sweeter and it tastes.

Taste: Mmm...a great balance of hops and rye malts in this one...not too boozy up front or in the back...has a good earthly flavor...

all around a good brew!
