Draft at Big Hops. Clear golden color. Aroma of fresh pine. Taste is very bitter, too bitter to let the spiciness of the rye shine through.

The bitter is most of what I taste. The aroma is probably a bit more complex and interesting. Sure feels good going down though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich hazy amber and deep bronze coloured body with a nice two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of herbs, rye, pale malt and quite a bit of herbal and peppery hops. Medium-bodied; Deep rye flavour at first with a very earthy bite, some subdued sweetness from pears and apples and a pungent rye and earthy malt flavour at the end. Aftertaste shows a good depth with some sweetness, but a large rye and specialty grain note. Overall, a nice rye-based pale with some nice hop notes, a hint of sweetness, but a lot of toasted herbs and dry notes. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased a few minutes ago at Central Market in Austin, Texas for US$6.99 on 06-May-2014 sampled in my hotel room here in Austin on 06-May-2014.

Copper body and stable small head. Apricot, oranges and mango hops, very fruity even the yeast. Light caramel malts. Not terribly bitter, so that’s nice sometimes, like now. (On tap at Dough San Antonio)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep hazy orange-amber with a high, rocky cream-colored head. Nose is lavender, grapefruit, and camphor with a touch of soap. Clean and spicy on the tongue, with definite hops-forward bitterness and a faint trace of dill and fennel. Finish is long and very bitter. Pretty straightforward, but also pretty good. No surprises.
