Drinking on 1/29/15 with a best by date of 1/28/15 (1 day stale?)

Something about the flavor profile in this beer just isn't working for my tastes. A little sweet upfront with alot of earthy and black pepper flavors (if that is what I'm tasting) and a crisp slight bitter finish. I've had several rye based beers and none have the smell/tastes I'm picking up in this one. Many other pale ales and lighter rye based beers I'd prefer over this one.

While it may not be some all star beer that people rave about, this is one beer that I could drink any day. Pretty well balanced. Very drinkable.

This is one of the beers that got me into hops and craft beer. Solid beer. Very drinkable.

Pours a clear amber with producing 1 1/2 fingers of off-white, frothy, somewhat lasting head that leaves some patchy streaks, strings & motes of lace. Aroma is grainy, toasty & floral with bitter & spicy notes of rye, piney hops & a faint hint of grapefruit. Taste is earthy grain, toast & rye mixed with earthy citrus & pine. Produces a low-moderate bitter across the tongue, front to back, with a floral, grapefruit, piney resin & light pepper mixing with spicy rye & pale/lightly toasted malt background producing a nicely bitter, dry finish. Unusually the bitter does not linger in the predominantly but shortlived malty aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, dry, drawing & peppery. Pairs exceptionally with spicy boiled crawfish.

A solid, rye-y rye pale ale. Nothing over the top; just good, mellow rye flavor and moderate carbonation for an easy drink.

Pours a nice clear orange color with off-white head. Rye, spice, floral notes, and some citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with rye and spice. Very nice, just a good amount of hop bit but enough caramel malt to round it out.
