3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a near clear brown with a slight amber hue and a white head that laces thickly. Aroma has a really nice citrus hop note backed by some light pine and a nice rye note as well. Flavor begins with a bit of light rye that combines nicely with some citrus and grapefruit and has a bit of pine towards the finish. Really nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m a sucker for a beer which delves into rye for some reason and this one has a nice dark sticky malty base to it along with a generous dose of hops which have a wet citrus west coast style profile which accentuates things very well. There is a bit of a dark oil smelling caramel piece which I’m not fond of but overall I enjoy it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can... Poured dark, reddish with an off-white head. Sweet, slightly bittering tones from the rye. Honey, malt sweetness, and decent punch of earthy, peppery hops for balance. Very clean and a worty finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear reddish gold with a half inch head that retains very nicely. Aromas of rye, caramel, toast, orange zest, and earthy hops. Taste is neither sweet nor bitter. Like a lot of rye beers, this is pretty well balanced. The sweet rye, honey, and earthy notes are finished nicely by a mild citrus hop kick. Dry finish, not necessarily bitter like an IPA. Solid, semi-light mouthfeel. Not a huge Sixpoint fan, but I love rye beers and 16 oz cans. Well done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served from the new 16oz cans that lists the ABV as only 6.3%. At first glance it appeared as if this beer poured a deep chocolate brown but upon holding it up to the light I can see that is actually more of clear super deep reddish/orange. The head was of average sized but very foamy and of an off white that dropped the appearance down from a 4 to a 3. Aroma has a good dose of rye bread up front followed by chocolate, spiceyness and citrus hops. Fuller bodied with foamy mouthfeel and average carbonation with a good strong lingering aftertaste. Flavor of rye, chocolate, grass, slightly wet leather, a hint of metal. I really like this.
