A nice easy drinking pale ale. Aroma is honey and sweetness. Taste is light hop bite with a melon flavor and rye bite. Nice lasting thin head. Nice mouthfeel.

Love the nose on this beer. You can almost smell that rye spiciness. Malt flavors meld well with the rye, and the hops synergize well. Bit too bitter, but very enjoyable none the less.

Honeydew melon and cracker aromas. Taste is cantaloupe and honeydew melons, then pepper rye crackers; finally an astringent finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with a thin white ring. Pine resin and sweet citrus aroma. Light syrupy body with medium bitterness. Mostly citrus rind with a somewhat bitter and dry finish. OK but not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Ground Control. Yes, itís golden (with a hazy tilt). Yes, it carries a rye character (gritty, earthy). Itís without technical flaw. In the end, I found this a pleasant but not different summer sipper. (#6117, 2/12/2016)
