Similar to red rocket ale. Good stuff. I think I prefer the red rocket a little more, but a decent contender.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/14/13
Aroma: The nose has floral/citrus hops, rye bread, resiny notes, and some spice
Appearance: Pours a clear reddish color with an inch of frothy beige head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is on the dry side, with plenty of rye, decent hop bitterness, and a some spice
Palate: This one has light-medium body, with lively carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
I thought this one was pretty solid. Itís a rye beer with a plenty decent hop profile. Itís pretty drinkable. This one is nothing amazing, but there isnít much not to like.
