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

A: A hazy copper color with a thin line of off-white bubbles on top.

S: Floral hop aroma with a nice dose of rye and toasted malt.

T: Initial taste is grassy bitter hop and this mellows out into a sweeter toasted malt and rye flavor. The lingering hop bitterness mixes well with the rye.

M: Medium body and good carbonation.

O: It's a good beer, but I was hoping for a little more rye flavor. I think the intense hop takes away some of that. Still good stuff though.

Poured this rye beer into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle. Produced a very nice white head, retention was great, lacing was also outstanding. This beer poured a cloudy orangish brown color. The aroma was full of spicy rye, citrus and piney hops. The taste of this beer was medium in body, very smooth, drinkable,and full of malt, bitter citrus hops. Spicy tone set by the rye...very nice. For sure a keeper!
