Draught at Seattle Tap Room (Sea-Tac Airport)
Hazy amber color with creamy head. Interesting aroma: creamy and nutty, impression of hazelnut ice cream. Good body structure; malt and caramel flavor with mild toffee and nuts feeling; strong bitterness, although the final is rather boring.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Town Hall Lanes. Clear golden yellow pour with a nice clingy white head. Nose is mild rye, mild caramel malt, and mild floral hops. Crisp palate but not bitter at all. Subdued, subtle, drinkable, and tasty. Very solid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours a clear dark gold body with a nice frothy tight bubbled beige head. The nose is an awesome mix of light spicy rye and tropical hops, very juicy and fresh smelling. The flavor is pretty well balanced between the rye and fruity hop notes. The calypso and mosaic hops really shine in this one. Finishes with some herbal and green leafy hoppiness and a slight spicy note. Lighter bodied and crisp with fizzy prickly carbonation and a lingering tropical finish. Really nice rye pale ale. Fresh and bright.

Tap at Republic. Hazy appearance. Surprisingly strong hops in the aroma. Sweetness in the flavor balanced by rye and tons of hops, something about this reminds me of Two Hearted. Full of flavor really, and loads of hopes.One of the most flavorful APAs I have ever had. Good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught in a flight. Pours a clear amber color. The rye in this one will smack you in the face. It is rye dominant, and overwhelms the nose of this, though pleasantly. The spiciness from the rye is quite inviting. The taste is a little bitter and quite dry, with just a hint of some pepper in there. Yum.
