3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle. Pours ruby brown with thin cream head with some lace. Very malty caramel scent which balances the beautiful spice and hop scent coming through. Incredibly balanced taste as well and taste is consistent throughout from first taste to the residual at the end. Just as much sweetness as hop kick and slight alcohol burn. Thicker mouthfeel than I was expecting. Fantastic Rye PA which really seems well suited for a fall and/or winter. Could easily be on a Xmas beer list with it's blend of spice and nuttiness. Marking as a new favorite.

Tap at Republic. Solid malty nose, some interesting hoppiness (can’t identify it), and rye. Reddish/amber color. Rich caramelly initial, some tar-like note, light peppery rye, crushed weeds, and a light sweet finish. Medium body. Malty stuff. The rye notes are quite mild.

Smells great, tastes better. Light on the IPA side of things. Reminds me of Hopaluia that is brewed in my area.

American rye, sweet like an imperial up front, light rye aftertaste, dark amber color, has an oak flavor which blends nice with hops.

Good aroma, but something isn’t right? Then, you drink it and the rye flavor is spectacular.

Impressive exotic beer. Wonderful spent grainy, barley, sugar, nutty aroma with rye notes as well. Smooth body and not fizzy. Very sweet but not artificially so. Nutty, rather malty flavor with a little rye bite. Nice unusual drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber color with a nice white and that leaves strands of lacing behind. The rye complements the grapefruit in the aroma to produce a grainy, citrusy blend. After establishing the cane sugar backbone, the bitter flavors take over with pine, grapefruit and rye grain. Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation. Good but uninspiring.
