4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a deep ruby color. decent amount of head. aroma is hop forward. lots of citrus (grapefruit) and piney notes. the caramel malts come through in the flavor and plenty of bitterness to keep it in check. not getting as much of the rye spiciness but still a good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pretty hoppy with spruce and pine aromas. Sweet caramel and bread malts.
Color is a dark reddish brown, with a small off white head.
Taste is fairly bitter but is quickly followed by a nice balancing sweetness. The typical rye wild/rustic flavor is clear but not over whelming.
Medium tons bit full bodied; a long finish, with a very nice combination of bitterness, sweetness, wild rye and yet a touch of dry crispness also. Good mouth feel.
Overall a quite good beer with pretty good complexity- a fair amount going on here.

Tap. Worthy Burger, South Royalton, VT. Hazy copper colour. Off white, clingy head. No surprises here. Juicy, spicy, soft resin hoppage. Zesty, with soft chew. Easy drinking, albeit a bit thin, maybe. Soft spice bitterness on the close. Ok.
