a nice beer here, a little safe or conventional as they go now, this would have seemed more daring and unique ten years ago, but its well made and its a six pack type for me, one i could drink several of in a sitting, albeit somewhat mindlessly for better or worse. good clarity here, rising white head, plenty of carbonation. it obviously has rye in it when i smell it, the classic pale rye malt spiciness, but its balanced well by some richer crystal type malts, not sweet but built up a little bit. the hops are piney and sturdy here, bittering this up pretty well in the smell and taste, almost all in the finish too, this has a familiar trajectory as i drink it. the rye is there for sure, dry which is nice, but its pretty well incorporated, which is nice for drinking a bunch of these, but i like a bit more of a pronounced kick from it, and think maybe the 20% could have been 30% or more in this mash to yield a somewhat more assertive rye complexion. that said, i like the way it works in conjunction with the other malts in this, and appreciate it greatly as a balanced beer overall. good bitter hop bite at the end and a grapefruit element as well. nice proportionality, this should have wide appeal!

Strong tropical fruit aromas and flavors together with the taste of peaches and leeks. Sips are sweet and fruity up front, with additional notes of pear and orange and the rye dries out the swallow. The grain establishes the fruit-sweet front and that clean, bitter end.

This was different but not bad. The rye flavoring is a nice unique touch. I would not rush out to get it again, though.

Straw yellow to gold in color with a quarter inch of creamy brilliant white on top. Light lacing. The aroma is of tropical hops and spicy to earthy rye. I'm tasting a well balanced amount of spicy earthy rye and tropical hops. The mouth is light, crisp, and pure.

Pours a hazy gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong citrus hops, slight floral hops, alcohol, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of piney hops, and slight rye. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable bitterness. Tastes of strong citrus hops, slight floral hops, alcohol, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of piney hops, resin, and slight rye. Overall, great blend, fresh body, full-bodied, complex, good appearance, a rather surprising brew.

Pours a golden color with a good sized white head. Smells of rye and pine. The rye balances out the pine and citrus flavors and the beer is really smooth and easy to drink. Excellent.

12 oz bottled "with love" on 3/7/17 7.2% ABV poured into a Schlafly stange glass. The beer is golden yellow and just a bit hazy. Head is cream colored and persistent with beautiful lacing. Smell is grapefruit and rind with just a touch of earthiness. Taste follows smell with grapefruit, citrus rind, and tropical flavor giving way to earthy bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is solid, smooth and creamy with moderate carbonation. Overall, very good beer from Schlafly. Recommended

Aroma is rye, spices, pine and grapefruit/citrus. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, slightly sweet tropical fruit and a mix of rye, spices, mild alcohol and tart in the finish.

I know what you're thinking. 4.5 really? Yes really. I think we all agree 5 is perfect. And this is pretty close to perfect. I took one sip of this and had to write a review because I believe in giving credit where credit is due. And credit is due here friends. This beer is amazing. I'm gonna go ahead and say this is the best Schlafly beer I've ever had. And that's saying a lot because they make some really good beer. It's got a huge floral nose. It's got a great full body. It's perfectly balanced. It finishes clean and crisp. I hope you can get it as fresh as I have (12 days) but either way if you see it on the shelf you'd be a fool to pass it up. If you live in STL... go get it some right now. Cheers Schlafly, this is an amazing brew.
