4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden honey color, aroma of pine, grass and a basement kind of earthiness. Heavy spicey hop and rye flavor, hint of shallot, with nice carmel malt backbone. Accent on the hops. Very dry and a little flinty on the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from BevMo: Poured a dense golden honey color that was paired with a fluffy pillow of head. In the aroma, my nose is able to sniff out the hops while I’m only able to smell a faint scent of grains attributable to the rye. However, the flavor brings out the rye while also giving a taste of whole grains and a zesty spice of anise seed. As for the hops, they share the spotlight and give off a bitter taste that is both oily and citric. This is certainly one of the smoother rye beer recipes I’ve come across.

A really nice amber color. It has a hop aroma but isn't has fruity as normal. It has a mildly bitter and smoky flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a finger of tight head on a hazy, dark straw colored body. Looks great.
The aroma is wonderful: big and bright lemon and orange with a background of rye.
The taste has a bold citrus bitterness beginning to end. The spicy rye comes through in the middle really nicely.
The texture is thicker with moderate carbonation.
It’s a great IPA with the rye done really well.
