Appearance-Pours into pint glass a reddish chestnut brown with rich beige head, sticky lacing clings to the side as the head recedes into a milimeter or so of film which remains throughout, bundling on the edges.
Aroma-Citrus hops and sweet dark malts are dominant, caramelly with hints of dark fruits. A little grassy as well. The rye is very well balanced and far from dominant but lends its distinct spice in a tactfully reserved manner; I like it.
Taste-Dry and citrusy upfront but then cut by some malty sweetness; caramel and citrusy hops with that touch of grassyness as noted on the nose. The Rye adds a bit of spice that becomes more and more pronounced towards the finish and ends with a dry twang. Very well balanced.
Mouthfeel-Just full enough without being too heavy and with adequate carbonation; excellent.
Overall/Drinkability-This beer has singlehandedly changed my entire mindset on Rye beers, I had initially written the entire style off as I had not found a single example I liked. That said, this is an extremely well crafted brew that is supremely drinkable, well done Sixpoint, well done.
