Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A Sixpoint and Humane Society of New York collaboration that combines the spicy rye flavors and rounded mouthfeel of Righteous Ale with the citrus slash of the Bengali Tiger. This Rye-PA was fiercely dry-hopped and has nearly three times the hops normally used for these beers. Deliciously complex, bright, earthy and strong, this unleashed brew will have you howling. 6.6% ABV.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Poured from the growler into a Sam Smith's nonic-style imperial pint glass. Body is hazy orangey-amber (more on the amber side) with a pretty big (1.5-finger) fluffy ecru-colored head. Leaves good lacing behind.

S: Citrusy hops and rye spiciness.

T: Foundation of caramel malt, then juicy citrus. Rye spice finishes it off and there's some spiciness and heat felt on the way down, which makes it seem a bit stronger than the 6.6% ABV.

M: Nice and creamy in feel, medium in heft.

O: Solid stuff. Not necessarily memorable, but good. An easy drinker, despite the spice and impression of higher alcohol content. I'd get it again.
