3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fruity, soft rye ale.
The rye spiciness which I enjoy comes out, though timidly. Mostly dry palate. Interesting fruity array (peach, pear and the likes). Soft bodied.
Frankly deceivingly simple for a rye beer and really light-bodied. Not much cerealic complexity. Not very aromatic. Timid carbonation accentuates the wateriness. More hops would have been welcome.

Very pale yellow. Tangy, moderately astringent. Dry cereal finish with a bit of that rye twang. Not terribly fancy or complex, pretty easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy amber with a small white head with good retention. The aroma has citrus, pineapple and something that reminds me of a locker room, yet I’m not repulsed by it. Medium body with semi-soft carbonation. The taste has the dryness of the rye, a nice form of harshness and dry grapefruits. The finish continues even drier with pine needles and pine cones. A very enjoyable IPA that I wish I could get on more than just a stopping place on a long road trip.

(Bottle, thanks moejuck) Pours hazy orange. Hoppy aroma with tones of tangerines, roses and malty/ grainy notes of toasty caramel and rye. Undertones of pine, apricot and grapefruit with a floral hint. Hoppy flavour as well with tones of grapefruit and some flowers. Some toasty caramell undertones. Light sweet and medium bitter. Some grapefruit bitterness lingers along with a touch of caramel and rye. Medium body.

i have a place in my heart for rye in beer and this doesn’t disappoint. nice spicy rye aroma coupled with delicate floral and citrusy hops. both aromas carry over into the delightfully smooth beverage. great mouthfeel, coats everything with that great rye. excellent aftertaste and lingering spice finish. would had one or ten more but i was on a break from a convention across the street.
