3.8/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Copper color with one finger of head that fades to a thin cap with some spotty lacing.

Aroma: A strong grain aroma is detectable without even picking up the glass. Upon closer inspection, piney hop oils are the big contributor. There's also a slight breadyness with some grain husk mixed in.

Taste: A nice, medium, toasted malt body is present right from the get go, with a fair amount of bitterenss that gets more resinous and phenolic as it goes down. Decent carbonaton helps break-up some of the bitterness towards the back end, but then it comes right back on the finish, which is mildly lingering with fading bitterness. The malt profile isn't is sweet as I would typically expect, which I'm going to put on the account of the rye. It definately has a unique flavor.

The Rest: Lots o'hops and a unique malt profile make this one to check out. I don't think I'll have any issue finishing the sixer that I bought.
