4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap@Obriens. Dark amber hue, thin white head, sticky lacing. Nose is thick rye and bread malts, big pine and grass hops, toffee. Flavor is a balance of bitter rye and hops, big and bold, west coast rye for sure. Medium-full, thick texture, mod carbonation. A great take on a difficult style, über bitter!
