look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Hazed and murky reddish sienna color; I still got a nice volcanic topper on my rather gentle pour into a pint glass. The head crown laced down an inch below the rim as I imbibed. The nose has that familiar Sixpoint hop character side-by-side with a spicy rye malt. Hints of steakhouse brown bread and ginger can be detected. The taste is more of the same bready malt and coppery spiciness. Those hops reminiscent of Bengali Tiger are there offering bitter orange notes. Mouthfeel is creamy and comfy; nice and round with a soft medium carbonation. A just short of remarkable rye beer. Well done.

Nice dirt, clay color that is completely cloudy. Huge bubbly off-white head that leaves a class ensconced in lace. Very strong weed-like scent to it.

This has a very tame hoppy taste. Because of the robust scent the mix with mild bite of hops and smooth balance of malt makes this an extremely pleasant beer. Nothing is obnoxious and it's just a nice, chilled out brew.

A - Dark burnt brown body. Looks like a quad. Off white 2 finger head. Good lacing.

S - Definite rye. Some hops way in the background.

T - Burnt malt and rye. Tastes like a piece of bread. Slight bitterness on the finish.

M - Solid. A little dry on the finish, light to medium body and plus carbonation.

O - A pretty good beer if you are looking for rye (which you probably are if you're drinking a "Rye Beer") but not much other than that.

A pounder can from Finger Lakes. In a tumbler.

A: The rye beer is amber, orange and brown hues swirling together. The base of my glass accentuates the orange tones. Plenty of white head, nearly overflowing my glass. The upside is plenty of web-like lace left behind.

S: Aniseed and rye are strong, a thick sweetness. Pepper and caramel follow up, but damn that rye is sweet. Not the bready spiciness that I'm used to either.

T: Caramel and rye, paired with citrus hops, register in the first sip. The rye is, like the nose, very anisey and spicy. The dark flavors sit nicely with the caramel grains. Citrus hops, even a little pine, add a bitter contrast to the sweet spicy rye. Hops emerge over time, a sweeter bitterness still fights with the rye, but in the fraternal throw-down kind of way. Aniseed is the finish.

M: Sickly sweet with anise, a very liquified, syrupy version.

Pours opaque, dark amber and brown in color, with thin, off-white head leaving a touch of lacing. The aroma has a definite, sharp grain kick to it right up front, along with assertive spicy, herbal hops notes, with some grapefruit or tropical fruitiness as well. Slightly sweet, with a grainy malt base. Intensely bitter with sharp, spicy notes, with just a hint of citrus fruit. The mouthfeel is exceptionally rich and chewy.
