3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Liquor Loft. Small white head with spotty lacing. Pleasent aroma of floral pine, citrus and light spice. Tastes are odd - not what I was expecting for some reason: yeast, rye, tropical fruit, earthy leaves and grain. Strong hop profile backing it all up. Finish is short and dry with little lingering spice. Nice light to medium texture. Interesting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer did not have the tang that I look for in rye beers. Decent hop character, but a little dry and in need of some more sweet malt presence. Not my thing.

Bottle shared w/ Amanda. Pours out an orange color with a white head on it. Smell is hoppy and has a good bit of rye in the nose. Pretty smooth drinking, slight bitterness but not too much. An easy to drink beer that really shouldn’t cost $6. Worth production in a sixer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours deep red-orange, slightly hazy with minimal white head. Nose is heavy on the rye malts, slight piny hops and grapefruit. Taste is slightly sweeter than I’d have expected; more big rye up front, cut by some nice caramel malts. Resiny, crisp mouthfeel, a bit nutty on the finish. Cool brew.

Aroma: spicy rye, slight sweetness, floral and spicy hops. Pours a slightly hazy golden, white head with average retention and spotty lacing. Flavor follows the nose; spicy rye and hops, some citrus, slight sweetness and resin. Medium body and carbonation. Solid brew.

Another great beer from Sweetwater! Balanced, hoppy with zero bitter because the light sweetness of the rye is done perfectly. I almost get a tangy, citrus after taste, maybe grapefruit, that is so subtle. Nothing is over powering in this beer, this is a solid one (should have bought more!) RAR

Pours hazy golden copper with a about 1" white head - good lacing. Plenty of citrus zest and some floral notes here. Lt - med body. Smooth, clean palate some dryness. Rye flavor is definitely present. Good bit of bittering hoppiness - Orange zest. Some mal sweetness on the finish. A good, balanced brew, but didn’t really ezcite me.
