4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
hoppy nose, a hint of soft oxidation. slightly hazy, but the lighting is too dark for me to comment further on the color. sturdy head. quite malty, a touch oxidized (this is a year old, so...), but it works. a citrus hop note? a hint of bitter orange flavor. good solid body. some sweetness balanced by bitterness in the finish. the 8.5% ABV is well hidden in the complex flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at mugs. Tangerine and sweet grain upfront, very sessionable... Usually not a big rye beer fan but this is an exception.
