12oz bottle bought as part of the current Long Trail Farmhouse Ales mixed 12-pack from Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA. Bottled on 10/9/14.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" tan head over the slightly cloudy reddish brown brew. Head fades gradually, with sporadic lacing. Aroma is roasted grains and spices.

Taste starts sweet, spices kick in next, and then coasts through to the close with balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is good. Enjoyable take on the style.

Not really IPA like tasting, but overall it's still very good.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A- Deep brown and turbid. Light brown head is dense. Nearly creamy. Retains decently.

S- Roast, subtle dark chocolate. Some earthy hop, a little resin.

T- Very similar to aroma. I think the rye comes out in the flavor. A bit of a spice character. Hops not as much. Just a faint earthy bitterness.

M- Medium body with a roasty bittersweet finish. The hops attribute just slightly to that.

O- Hop character just isn't as high as it should be. This borders a rye porter. The malt is in the spotlight here, and it shouldn't be.

Pours clear, deep chocolate brown with a moderate head that lingers for a little bit. The flavor of milk chocolate is a bckdrop to the strong bitterness of the hops which is so characteristic of an IPA. A dry aftertaste. This is a very good beer, but I don't think I could drink more than two before wanting something a bit lighter.
