3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery.
Orange-amber body with a very good head.
Aroma: has a strong rye component with a moderately strong herbal hop component.
Flavor: plenty of spicy rye here, probably amplified by the hops. Herbal hops as well, but the spiciness dominates the finish and aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster at Burial during RBWG. Listed as 6.6%. Looks good; a transparent copperish orange with off-white lacing. Smells solid; a well-balanced hop profile with notes of rye and a pleasantly sweet pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. An awesome rye pale ale.

Sampled at the brewery. Copper hued with a little off white foam. Rye inthe aroma. A big rye flavor. This is also well hopped. Fruit anddrynessfrom them. Bitterness is ontne very back of the tongue but is moderate. Somesweeter malts bring a nice offset. Rye is dominant and is really nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewery, this pours the deepest amber, with a sudsy head and lacing. The nose is vegetal and savory. Flavors of definitive rye and butter (without diacetyl alcohol), making an almost savory brew that would pair perfectly with burgers. And I mean perfectly. The full body accompanies a complex, substantive palate. Very nice and interesting rye here. You know, after talking to the brewer about all of the unique "takes" on traditional styles they do, I am becoming a real fan.... quickly.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Summit not nearly as present as before, but well replaced by Mosaic. Loving this beer as an everyday drinker around 6.5%. Great job. Could use a touch more rye, though it is ever apparent here

One of my favorite all day drinking beers. Lots of hops without the bitterness. Tons of malt without the sweetness.
