5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
"Complex flavor" is an understatement for this beer. Way more to it than just being a standard pale ale with a bit of rye. Great balance between the malts, rye and hops with the citrus hop profile coming through little bit after the rye. Incredibly versatile as it is easy drinking enough for a hot summer day but will definitely work well through the fall and winter. My new go-to.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark mahogany beer with a medium foamy light beige head. Somewhat unusual nose for the style with light citrus hops, a bit of pepper, and subtle cereal grains. The flavor provides more sweet malt that forms a base for a few other flavors, such as earthy spice, wood, and even a bit of smoke. This is then finished with an astringent bitterness that coats the tongue. Good beer.
