3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, golden amber colored body, and a two finger thick head were pleasing to look at. The smell was mild, and sweetish, with honey, and cinnamon notes. The taste was not as sweet as I was anticipating. I got a clean crisp taste like a an APA, with minimal fruity and spicy notes that are typical in a Rye beer. The hops were not all that aggressively showcased either, with only a faint bitterness and some spice in the finish. This was pretty good in the mouthfeel department, with a smooth body that glided across the tongue. Pretty basic.

On tap at Battleship. Pours a golden color with medium white head. Aromas are of rye, floral hops, sweet caramel malts. Taste is of a faint IPA with an grassy grassy and earthiness to it. Hints of pine, spruce, and lemon from the hops. Not bad. Prob a first and last.

Medium brown with medium brown head. Aroma grassy and piney hops, and some bread-like malt. Medium full body. Flavor is overall sweet. There is some bit of spice, and some hops. Drinkable for sure but I think a little too sweet and a tad out of balance.

Bottle. Light brown pour with thin white head that dissipates. Medium carbonation with ipa aroma. Interesting flavor with hop presence and rye on the back. Enjoyable.

Draft at Champs Altoona. Pours brown with an inch of white foam. Leaves some trace lacing. Nice rye notes of the nose even with the massively frozen glass. Lots of spicy rye on the tongue. I hate rye beers that don’t taste of rye. This ones pretty groovy.

This is a good one. Good pour with a nice head and lacing. Good sweet aroma and taste. Hops follow and the rye really makes this one stand out. Good brew.
