3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The color is a clear garnet with a large light tan head, and the aroma is rye with resin and floral hops. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and a touch umami, but the heavy bitterness doesn’t linger, which is nice. There is a average carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a slightly bitter finish.
