A pleasant surprise, enjoyed at the brewpub near the Falls. Hoppy aroma, a whit head. White lace. Some citrus and decent hop flavours. A noticeable rye edge. Above average carbonation only distracting flaw. It had flavour and was drinkable. This brewpub is coming alive.

On tap at Volo.
Pours a mostly clear orange/amber, maybe a touch of haze, thick white head forms, slowly settles to a thin ring around the glass, some lace spots stick.
Smell is alright, some rye spice and a bit of citrusy hopping, orange peel, some biscuit, a bit of honey sweetness, not a whole lot going on.
Taste is similar, deep bready character, biscuit, rye, some malty sweetness in the middle, a bit of citrus and floral, light bitterness but mostly balanced.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Drinkable and nothing really wrong, but doesn't get me too excited. A little too much bready character.

Taps a murky turbid light brown, decent rocky cap, great lacing ability.
Sweet and sour sensation in the nose, malty-sourdough with leafy hopping.
Peppery spicy on the tongue, bright grainy character,
Big chew on sour rye in the front with some sweetness (crystal malt?) spicy with a herbal hop flair....finish is clean and dry.
A very respectable, drinkable rye beer, flavorful, quenching and good for a patio session

Growler filled yesterday at the Niagara Falls brewpub. Pours a clear orange colour with thick white head that dissipates down to a thin ring. Almost no lacing. Smells of citrus hops and sourdough bread. Pretty much smells like an APA with the rye malt. Small bitterness in the flavour. Medium bodied carbonation. A very nice beer. No issue finishing off my half of the growler.

Served in a pint glass at the brewery.
Served a bit cold. Copper/gold colour. Small head, medium head retention. Left lace half way down the glass.
Big hop nose, more hops than I was expecting. Aromas of citrus zest, pine, grass, nice overall.
Tasted citrusy, and spicy. Once again, more hops than I was expecting but well balanced. Decent bitterness. I guess I was expecting more rye flavour, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one.
Mouthfeel was good, if a bit under carbonated. Medium body.
Definately a good beer. I wish they had it in bottles year round.

On tap at the brewpub.
White, frothy head dissipates cleanly. Smells like artisan sourdough rye just out of the oven. Rye hits your palate like a ton of bricks, then the taste fades neatly to clean
Very good beer, but more of a one-and-done than a pounder for me.

A - Clear copper without much of a head.
S - Nose is light. Slightly sweet with hints of apple and herbs. Impression of mint.
T - Spicy rye notes. Coarse, dry bitterness.
M - Light body with a mild carbonation. Fairly astringent.
D - OK overall. Seems a bit one-dimensional.

Growler from the brewery, shared with mrmanning. An American-style pale ale brewed with rye malt.
A: pours a deep rusty copper with amber hues and one finger of cream white head that dissipates after a while. Not much lace.
S & T: citrus, very mild tropical fruit, pale and crystal malts, and a moderate, spicy hop bitterness. The rye malt contributes a residual graininess to the body with some chalky dryness in the finish. All of the flavours could be kicked up a few notches though.
M: medium, grainy, tangy bite midway, big parched spiciness to end. The rye becomes more evident as the beer warms.
D: great session pale ale, not too bold, but interesting enough to drink for an evening.
