3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep golden color with a lot of yeast chunks in it and topped by a creamy, off white head. Aroma has a light bitterness, some mild rye spicy presence, light lemon with a light grainy finish. Flavor has a very nice pure bitterness early that carries through the entire tasting. Middle has light honey flavors kick in with some lemon citrus and light spicy flavors to finish. Body is light/modest with a dryness imparted from the strong hops bitterness and high, fine carbonation. Overall a solid and enjoyable brew with lots of flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a three finger sticky eggshell foam that laces nicely. The aromas are citrus, earthy spice and a touch of sweet malt. The palate is direct and powerful with lots of spicy rye flavors mingling with the citrus grassy hop profile. Really big bitter spice on the back of the throat. Pretty tasty. Thanks Jstax.

Pours a slightly hazy straw color, which leaves some webs of lacing. Aroma is light citrus and grassy hops, rye. Taste is part APA, part pilsener, with a rye component to it. The palate is silky smooth and very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Served in a shaker pint. Pours a light, golden color (what else?) with a 1-inch white, foamy head. Heavy yeasty aroma and flavor with slight floral notes. Lingering, bitter finish. Drinkable, but doesn’t hold a candle to the quality of many of their other brews, such as Two-Hearted or Hopslam.

Small head that fades quickly. A lot of sediment in this one(which may be improved by decanting). Nose is of citrus and rye. Taste is hoppy bitter and very good. Citrus flavors and pine with very little maltiness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice dark yellow with a lot of stuff flossing in it. Thick white foam. I get hops, rye and citrus in the aroma. I really enjoy the hoppy citrus rye flavor. Basically a good pale ale with the rye addition. Good beer.
