look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Deep red body topped with a creamy white (almost off white) head. Very good head retention, which stays with the beer the whole time. There is tiny lacing that clings to the glass.
S: Sharp Amarillo hops on the nose. Also, there's a lot of rich full malt in there. The rye is very noticeable. Grapefruit is also very prevalent.
T: The first thing I noticed was the rye. Then the rest of the malts came later. All the while, intertwined with the bittering hops. It's very well balanced though.
M: It’s a full, rounded ale. It fills you palate and lingers for a bit, but not in a bad way. For a hoppy rye, it has a rather easy after taste.
D: This beer is very drinkable. This would be a great tailgate companion on a brisk day.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottled 08/13/13 at 50 degrees into regular pint glass
Aroma of pine and rye
Head average (3 cm), creamy, off white, slowly diminishing
Lacing good, multiple rings > 1 cm wide with mostly small bubbles
Body medium amber, clear
Flavor begins spicy with a hint of hop pineness, slowly fades to a slight bitterness; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, slightly oily, carbonation soft.
Evan though this is 8 months old, it is still flavorable, with the rye predominating. The reduced presence of hops could be because of the age of the beer.
Serving type: bottle
