Growler from whole Foods Devon. Pretty expensive IIRC. Pours a fairly standard straw with an inch of fizzy head. Mild dank aroma. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Spot on for a pale ale. Taste is bright with flowers mild skunk herbs and a little bit of rye. I wouldn't necessarily have guessed the rye but now that I know, it's definitely noticeable. Very good pale ale. Lots of flavor and great to drink. Damn good!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One Mile House, NYC tap: Pours golden with white head. Aroma is grassy hops, wet hay, and biscuity malts. I don’t really get much rye out of this either (unless it is blatant for me in a beer, I seldom notice it). Anyway, the body is really light. The beer itself is kind of bitter, with nice hoppy flavors throughout. This is certainly better than the last Carton I had, for which I am quite happy.

Daft. Golden pour with white lacy head. Nice herbal, floral and grassy aromas. Flavor is light but still floral and has hints of herbal hop tones. Guess I’m missing out on rye tones.
