3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle and served in nonic pint glass: Pours a mostly clean golden hue with a nice frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has juicy hop esters of grapefruit and melon along with some pine. The rye is not overpowering on the nose, some caramel and bready notes. The taste is more akin to that of a standard IPA, moderately bitter and fruity with a touch of resiny character. The rye is more noticed towards the finish with a dry spicy tone. Fair amount of malt balance as well. The mouth feel is sprite but not overly aggressive, metallic finish. Overall, a solid brew and worth trying again.
