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.

Pours a cloudy gold with a medium white head. Aroma is pilsner malts and light grains. Taste really is good. Initially, you get the grains which fade almost immediately, giving way to a citrus rind hoppy bitterness. The finish is pilsner malts with a little maple syrup. Not bad and easy to drink.

Resin and floral hop aroma. Distinct rye flavor mixed with a pilsner type malt. Hop bitterness resembles the rye malt, but lingers in the mouth.
