2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at New Bohemia. Orange in color with minimal head. As expected the fresh hop approach brings the hop aroma to the forefront. Some cereal from the rye. The rye involved kind of messes with the fresh hop taste. A little more bitter than I want or need at the end. Something that just doesn’t work with this option. Find a different beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy dark golden with a thin sticky white head. Zesty hoppy resinous nose with some floral tones and a touch of rye-tinged caramalt. Smooth nutty rye flavor with a overtone of smooth floral fresh leafy hops. Not very rye-ish to be honest but mellow and balanced and bright all around.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap poured into a sampler glass. Notes of dark rye bread, dough, light citrus, and butterscotch can be found in the aroma, along with a note of pine. The beer pours a hazy orange yellow with a creamy, off-white head that reduces to a thick fuzzy ring, with a fuzzy, solid surface layer. It leaves behind snowdrift like sheet lace. The taste is a dry, mellow, medium light sweet with a medium bitterness. The thin beer has lots of fuzzy soft carbonation and a medium light body. There’s mellow notes of rye bread, citrus, light spice, and butterscotch. It finishes dry and clean with a light, spice and citrus aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A couple pints on tap at Dutch’s. Mostly hazy orange color. Pours with a nice, thicker off-white head, leaving decent ropes of lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Good full mouthfeel, kind of creamy. Light slickness in the finish. Nice toasty aroma, mildly spicy rye malt, biscuity. Kind of spicy tropical citrusy mildly piney hop. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Pretty solid, tasty, smooth flavorful complex rye pale ale. Nice hop balance to the rye malt, pretty tasty stuff. Great to enjoy with my sandwich. Pretty easy drinking.
