3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first time down to Atlanta, I was lucky enough to try this is both bottles and on tap. Apparently if you order a beer at a bar in Atlanta without specifying draught or bottled, they automatically will give you the bottled stuff.
The Bottled: Didnít give me a glass so cannot comment on color or head. Difficult to smell the true aroma. It had a nice palate and was quite refreshing. Tasted the hops and malt but nothing really too interesting. It didnít really stand out to me.
On Tap: Pours a nice caramel color with a quickly dissapating head with a slight lacing on top. You really taste the fresh malt and hops in this one. The rye flavors also really pulled through without being too overwhelming. Slightly dry fragrantly hoppy finish. Nice sweet fresh aroma and the beer is also nicely balanced.
This ended up being my favorite local beer during my trip. Make sure you get it on tap. The bottled version does not do it justice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Semi-cloudy copper color with a small head. Floral aroma with a little hairspray. Sharp flavor of what I assume to be rye and perfumy hops. Average body with a musty aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a sightly hazy golden color with a finger of foam. The nose is a mixture of pine citrus and honeyed malts kissed with a touch of spice. The palate is bright with some good citrus notes that lead into a round malt mid palate and a bitter finish with a touch of rye spice that is well integrated.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Clear, honey-colored. Decent lacing, medium head. Good aroma, a little grainy-sweet, taste matches, but with quite a bit more bitterness at the back. Good taste not overwhelming in terms of rye. Nicely done actually, pretty medium body, not too strong of an aftertaste. Decently well balanced. Not the best rye beer, but far from the worst.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at SBWF 2013.
Dark golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of malt, rye, hops and with a fairly bitter finish. Nothing wrong with this one but it was a bit weaker than expected.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Still alittle hoppy but like the yeast choice for the overtones. Really a nice why to get the rye.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
There's a slight citrus taste with some hoppy finishing notes. I'm realizing I'm spoiled in Colorado, the Florida microbrew selection is still playing catch up.
