3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smooth finish. Was nice that the rye did not over power the flavor. I like a lot of hops so this was a good choice. Smaltz recently opened a brewery near me so I will probably taste them all.

Bottle. Gorgeous light cola brown pour with brown head. Caramel and fruity nose. Rye is present but not heavy handed. Creamy, malty, fruity, and caramel palate with only a moderate rye flavor. This is a good thing as rye can overpower sometimes. High alcohol content is not really detected. me like!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle, Purchased at Julio’s Liquors and received the Wild Six. Darker copper color with thin head in the snifter. Aroma is a pleasant fruit hop note initially followed by a nice rye and rounded by light caramel malt notes.
Oh YEAH! The flavor shows a nice rye presence through out the sip with a underlying fruit hop that transitions into a pine in the finish. The bitterness is a lingering pine with the fruit there put forward and giving way to the pine. Sweetness from the malts make this still on the balanced side. Overall this is a well balanced as described "bittersweet" piney, fruity with a light toffee/ caramel sweetness. Very nicely done, delightful to drink.

Aroma of rye and hops. Not a huge fan of the rye which is probably why I am not enjoying it as much. Nice malt and hop flavours though.

APPEARANCE - Transparent coppery red. 5-finger head that lasts awhile. Some lacing.
SMELL/AROMA/SCENT - Very aromatic. I could smell it from 3 ft. away. Strong piney, just a little sweet. Herbaceous.
TASTE - Piney, herbaceous, cloves, rye bread. ABV very well-hidden.
MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Light and dry, with very good carbonation for a high ABV brew. Well balanced.
OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - This is the Levy’s Jewish Rye of IPAs. Magnificent resiny aftertaste that stays with you. A very drinkable ale. You can guzzle this one (if you dare).
