3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Among the 10 beers tasted on tap today at the Two Brothers Taphouse, this was the one definitely worth enjoying a pint or two of beyond the 6-oz sample.Very complex: There are two layers of piney scent in the aroma and the body is unusually deep with the layers (by my estimation) attributable to the malts and rye involved. Attribute the graininess to the rye, too, I believe. And, sure, let’s blame the rye for the slightly dry finish. This is one to savor.

Bottle. Pours a ruby-Amber color with a foamy tan head and ample lacing. Aroma of malt, rye, fresh grain and light citrus. Taste of malt, rye, bit of citrus and spice. Mild bitterness with a clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a malty richness. Nice grainy texture for a well rounded beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Appearance: deep reddish Amber brown, clear, with a frothy khaki head.
Aroma: Strong punch of lemon and grapefruit hop notes, with a bit of peppery rye.
Taste: Bready, toasty, peppery malt flavored, leading into a sharp resinous, earthy, and tart grapefruit hop flavor. Seems like a hint of roast, but could be the rye
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little sticky.
Finish: Leaves a hint of rye but mainly a resinous strong hop bitterness that lingers long past the swallow.
Overall: Strong malt base with layers of flavor, but this definitely leans hoppy on overall balance. A pretty easy drinking beer considering the complexity of all the malt/hops. Nothing out of whack. It’s a good one.

Draft. Clear ruby light brownish amber. Creamy off white head. Fairly sweet. Mild bitter. Some rye flavor but not much spicy. Little tang. Maybe I just missed the boat on this one.. Enjoyable enough, but just ok.

Gave it a 4 back in the day, so it must be one still. Had in the bottle. Sorry, Just updating an app so I know if I had something at least once.
