Wow... this is soft. It’s very much a rye ale, and more of a rye ale than an IPA up front. Silky, thick, and almost creamy with a signature rye mushiness. It’s rye-ish with a slight IPA twist. It’s nice, but I was hoping for more hops.

Sample at the Draught House brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates quickly to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Short strings of lacing. Herbal hops, citrus and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of grassy hops, spicy rye and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with a lightly spiced hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at the Draught House.
The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is fairly straightforward and features some rye and pine notes, with not too much else coming through. The flavor is similar. I get some sweetness from the biscuit malt, as well as some spiciness from the rye and some resin and fruit notes from the hops. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
