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.
