This ale poured a hazy ruby amber with a decent light tan coloured head. Its finely carbonated, and thin and elegant lacings are present.
Grapefruit hops, caramel, rye, and an earthy spiciness.
Yum yum yum. Gotta say i love rye. Think my first drink ever was a shot of cheap rye whiskey my dad gave us kids when my mom was away visiting her folks or something. Was probably ten or so at the time. Its been one of my favorite grains ever since. Nice blend of caramel malts, rye graininess and grapefruit and peppery hops.
Wonderfully balanced medium bodied ale. Nice balance between the malts and the almost chewy rye graininess, as well as as the hops, which add a prominent grapefruit resiny character, as well as a more subtle earthy peppery spiciness.
This is one tasty beer, and a must try for those who like things with rye, like beer, whiskey, or bread. Would make a great session brew on a cooler night when a bigger brew is needed, would also make a great crossover brew for someone who likes rye and can handle a little hops. Ill be drinking this one again soon.
