3.6/5 rDev -7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
App - pale amber color, very clear. Poured a large white head, very creamy and with good retention.
Aroma - Some malt sweetness tinged with an earthy/pine aroma. Not sure if the earthy/pine character is hops, rye, or both.
Taste - Spicy and hoppy from the beginning. An earthy/pine hop flavor dominates, with a little extra tang from the rye? Quite bitter in the finish.
MF - Medium body and carbonation, hop bitterness is harsh on the tongue and slightly astringent. Subtle alcohol warming.
Overall - The hop/rye character makes it a bit one-dimensional. Would like to see more malt character up front to balance the bitterness.
