UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 On draft. Rich ruby color. Tangy grapefruit aroma (maybe -- is really hard to get nose out of a mason jar). Thick, chewy rye flavor with the oak aging coming through at the finish. Superb.

Great rye pale ale. Nice when brewers don’t shy away from the rye as if it is the geeky cousin of wheat that no one wants to hang out with. Pours perfect copper red color with almost no head. It’s a flavor explosion- rye, pine, flowers, citrus, resin, caramel and an overall sweetness to it that is just a hint too much. Hops at a nice bitterness to finish but all sweetness up front. Nice dankness and slick mouthfeel. With the sweetness toned down, would be an almost perfect recipe.

Draft served in a taster at the brewery. Pours a clear, red-gold color without much of a head. Notes of rye, grass, paper, florals, dust, pine, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with a resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Kind of dank, too. Has a dusty, musty nose and a really nice flavor. Good rye pale ale.
