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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub. Orange-amber. Beige head. Mid-plus lacing. Heavy rye/spice with some decent hop bitterness, and some slightly off flavors coming through on the finish, reminiscent of diacetyl. Okay feel. Okay overall, but not really working for me.

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 Iím 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 Iíve 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.
