Damn this is drinkable. Pours red, a little cloudy, with a nice thick head that lasts. Great spicy rye aroma with some hops in the background. Great thin body. Good balance of spicy malts, sweetness, and hop bitterness. Good stuff. Gription79 (2893) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There are strong malt notes throughout, caramel, toffee, bready. There is solid citrusy hops that balance the maltiness. There is a slight grassy vegetal hop character. Lingering bitterness. BillWyce (1098) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2015
