A - Dark copper body, some haziness, light tan head, wispy and a touch of lacing.

S - Caramel malt, pine, and a bit of spice and alcohol warmth.

T - Opens with lemon, moves quickly to tea and mint, a snap of peppery spiciness, and a sharp dry bitter close.

M - A bit sticky in the open, bitter dry close. Mildly taxing over time.

O - A refreshing brew and quite nice overall, with an excellent mix of spice, fruit, and sharp bitterness.

The beer has a gorgeous look, with its ruby red slightly brown color, almost as if it was heavily aged in sherry casks. Very aromatic but not fruity like an IPA. It drinks very smooth, with a dry, slightly bitter finish. This is somewhere between a sipper and a gulper. I would definitely come back to this again.

12 oz bottle with a 22 April 2017 BB date stamp.
Excellent clarity in a deep red-brown body. Good off-white head with decent retention.
Aroma: lots of toffee and faint rye. Alcohol esters.
Flavor: moderately strong and bitter; plenty of spicy rye flavors.
Feel: smooth, medium+ body.

On tap at Jealous Monk in CT. Nice dark orange color. Reasonable head. Great rye bite. Had with my sausage meal, great compliment. Love a good rye beer and this is one of the better I have had.

"Best by 2/29/16"; drank 1/13/16 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

See-through orange/red appearance.

A rough pour yielded a big khaki head; a frothy curtain of tree-rung lace.

Blood orange, brown sugar & faint baking soda notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Caramel & baking soda flavors up front; brown sugar notes on the finish. Unique, certainly, and a bit odd. I'd have another...

Best by date of 3/12/17 so still got a little over 3 months prior so should be relatively fresh. Appearance isn't much to look at. Sort of a really dark ruby / slight brown clear beer with small head that quickly disappeard. Has a really nice bright, sweet aroma. Hoppy but not in a citrus. Is it piney? Not sure but its really aromatic and can't quite put my finger on it. Taste is chewy, bitter hopped and very west coast IPA. Not sure if it bitter from the rye malts, hops used or combo. Very rich mouthfeel. A good well made IPA for the old school IPA drinkers.
