Been wanting to try something from AI for some time now. This is a good one to start on, I say.

Blast of hops all up in your mouth in a hearty, rye kind of way. It's not an obliteration, but quite a full ride. Mild burn from the rye's spices. Fairly thick body. This is a nice ale. Hearty and robust. If you like rye beers, you'll enjoy this one I'm sure...if you can find it. Heh.

A - Pours a just barely clear ruby-orange with a finger of frothy khaki head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts, spicy rye, some bready malts, grapefruit and citrus hops, and a touch of pine hops.

T - Starts off with a mix of sweet caramel malts with some grapefruit and citrus hops and mild bitterness. Through the middle, the spicy rye comes through with some bready malts, and a bit of pine hops and more bitterness. The finish is a mix of spicy rye and caramel malts with grapefruit hops and some bready malts.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a spicy, dry, and lightly bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice rye beer with some good earthy and spicy rye flavor and great overall balance.

Pours a deep dark clear cranberry with a short but firm off white head. Nice looking.

Nose is big fruit esters of sweet pears, peaches and plums; pleasant and inviting. (Served cool room temperature which just shows the nose and flavors perfectly when tasting).

Medium/full mouthfeel that is medium rich and medium creamy with light elegant carbonation.

Flavors just dominate this one. Big assertive roasted grain and full hop bitter flavor. Really nice balance of the big hops and the big malt. A hint of sweet wooded coffee on the very front palate gives way to a big roasted red ale. Big yeast/malt and bitter roast. Rye flavors come through on mid palate and come through very big on the finish.

Finish is all bitter rye bread and tones of burnt coffee. Develops more of a carmel malt character as it warms but retains complexity, body and character.

This is a really nice beer that I came across by surprise at City Beer. Nice job. This is a good one for big rich meals and grilled meats. It just cries out to be consumed with a meal. I like it.

I was way more impressed with this beer then I thought I would be. Pours a nice dark red color with a full inch head, nice lacing and is carbonated perfectly. Aroma is rye and a little caramel and some chocolate. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy with a nice rye malt bitterness and hop bite. I really enjoy a good rye ale and this one is right up there with hop rod IMO. Good job ale industries!
