3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured out of a bomber into a tulip glass. Golden color, moving to a little more orange. Nice head, 1/2 inch dirty white.
Smell: First, honey then lots of citrus, grapefruit, stops just short of a typical IPA smell. I surprisingly like the honey smell.
Taste: The honey is evident but in no way overpowering. Light bitterness at the end.
Light body, medium carbonation, bubbly.
The carbonation could be a little bit less. The use of honey was done very well. It is the perfect amount to balance the rest of the beer. The rye does not seem to be coming through though, which is why I wanted to try this in the first place. So if you are looking for a distinctive rye beer this probably is not the one, but it is still a good beer nonetheless.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a clear copper color that started off with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was barely any lacing.
The smell had a nice blend of Rye malt to sweet citrus and allowing a nice honey aroma all around.
The taste was mainly sweet but allowed a decent spice from the Rye and still had the honey to come in and blends very well.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not overbearing at any cost.
Overall, this was a pretty good Rye pale ale that had some nice honey to complement.
