4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler fill from Libation Station in Johnson City.
Poured into a pint glass, appearance is a very slightly hazy medium copper with almost a bit of a ruby tint.
The aroma is really wonderful. Tons of pine and citrus from the hops but also a nice malt base with a definite rye spice.
The flavor is extremely hoppy up front with significant bitterness along with pine/citrus hop flavor. Malt quickly rushes in with rye up front with some caramel underneath. There is even some very faint hints of coffee/chocolate. I can really tell there is tons of rye in this. Mouthfeel is very slick and oily. Carbonation is a little low although that could be a product of the growler fill.
Overall, a very impressive brew from a brewery I have never heard of. Awesome to see another Tennessee brewery and I look forward to trying more beers from Turtle Anarchy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler fill from Whole Foods Cool Springs. Dark golden brown on the pour. The head is very thin. Not carbonated as well as I would like. Of course that may be Whole Foodís fault. Luckily the carbonation level is fine on the palate. Still a bit light which makes the beer a bit syrupy. Nose of rye and spice and plenty of hops. Tastes pretty good. Nice bitterness from the hops. Rye malt is nice here. Not overdone in anyway. Though it is a bit straight forward and simple. Good.
