3.8/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: pours into my pint glass as an attractively browning gold, with modest bone colored head that fades to a nice lacing throughout the glass
S: the nose is a mild but pleasant interweaving of hops (grapefruit, pine) and grainy breadiness. the hops strengthen as the brew warms, and the overall aroma grows more sweet and sugary.
T: peppery up front upon first contact, followed by a sweet wash of hops and mild molasses. The rye then becomes more pronounced as an earthy undertone towards the finish.
M: smooth feel and decent, medium carbonation.
O: not bad at all, this brew has a lot of character. above average in its distinct categories, as a whole i actually find it greater even than the sum of its individual parts. i'll be back.
