3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a medium foamy white head. The nose hazy some spicy rye notes, but the primary smell seems to be a little wet dog and wet paper. A little oxidized perhaps? Thankfully it seems to blow off after a bit. The flavor has a light grassy bitterness, a touch of rye, spice, and light floral notes. Medium to full mouthfeel with carbonation on the softer side and a lingering bitterness. Not too bad. Definitely a different take on a pale ale.

The aroma is a bit dry with some floral citrus and rye notes. The appearance golden with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma a bit soapy. The palate is average. Overall not bad but not a favorite.

Has a nice light malty first sip then it hits with a nice punch of astringent. Very floral with a dry rye taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atlanta Highway) in Athens. Moderate stinky, earthy hop, some frog pond. Very pale straw, a bit hazy, with a 2-cm head. Pepper right from the start / in mid, pepper notes blend well with the hops / finished with bittering tracks and tiny pepper bites. Medium body. Not overdone with the rye. Good, more or less one-dimensional, session stuff.

12 oz. bottle from Kyle. Thanks man! It pours a light golden color with a lasting ring of white foam. Pretty light for a rye beer. The aroma is nice with cereal grains, pine, hints of dense rye maltiness and some citrus. The flavor is full bodied and very bitter with citrus pith, good rye bread crust, pine, and an earthy bitter finish. Smooth on the palate and dry with multigrain maltiness rather than sweet cara malts. A bit of a punishing finish for a lighter pale, but overall very enjoyable.

Despite freindly filtered pale lager look with things floating in there and a nifty fragrent aroma, taste is big bitter ipa with a little wallop on the finish. Lager lovers will not be impressed by its over the top juicy pine needles and spruce tar mixed with green grapefruit rinds.
