3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear light amber with a faint head. Slight hoppy aroma with a bit of grass. Clean taste with a hint of spice and rye; slight bitterness. Smooth overall with only a faint bitter aftertaste. Smoother and less powerful than other ryes I’ve tried. A bit unexpected as I’m used to ryes being more forceful, but the more restrained character is nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Pours a hazy orange. Aroma was spice hop with a fruity side. Taste was a little bitter from the rye, but the big hop bill made up for it. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured slightly hazy and golden. A small white head with minimal lacing. Aroma is tangerine and sweet orange on a soda cracker. Flavor does have a touch of spice on the finish with some grain and caramel malt mid palate. This drink works its way from the nose to the front of the tongue and back through the back of your throat in a deliberate and tasty fashion. The rye is unmistakeable and mutes the bitterness, smoothing out the finish as well. A tasty and highly drinkable brew. Medium texture with average carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Orange pour, white rocky foam. Good lace. Aroma of citrus hops, nice pine. Smells like a C-note IPA. Flavor is of toasted pale malt, caramel & biscuit. Rye tingle is very subtle. I find the rye easy to detect, but did have to look for it. It’s a nice sweetwater medium between IPA and 420. Id like a more dominate rye character. (3578)
