look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours a deep red/amber color. Appears somewhat murky (though there is no setiment or anything of that nature). A slight khaki head develops and fades quickly. Lacing and carbonation evident.
Smell is citrusy hops and a somewhat spicy element that is common to a lot of rye beers. Overall very pleasant and the fact that it features one of my favorite hop varietals helps a lot.
Taste is in line with smell. Hoppy but not overtly bitter and the rye helps a lot with that. The elements are blended together very nicely and the taste stays consistant throughout the glass.
Mouthfeel is great for the style. The right combination of crisp/smooth. Despite a lot of flavor this is very easy to drink.
Overall this is my favorite beer of the very general "rye" style, though really this could be thought of as an IPA more than anything else. Another great job by founders and one of my personal go-to, easy to get beers for hoppy styles along with 2hearted and Hop Notch.
