3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at La Cumbre. This is how the "red rye" thing should be done. Plenty hoppy, but allows for a nice amount of rye character to come through. Not overly malty, but has a backbone that isn’t just caramel malts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at the brewery. Dark red in color with average-sized creamy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is mostly of caramel malt. Flavor is sweet, bur with some spicy rye and bitter hop notes in the finish. Medium bodied with creamy mouthfeel. Well balanced, I really enjoyed this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-amber with a thick white head. Aroma of piney, Cascadian hops, grassy hops, caramel malt. Flavor of hop oils and grassy hops upfront with a malty finish and some spicy rye notes. Great New Mexican red (aka malty ipa) although the rye is not very prominent at all. Good stuff though.
