12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap and best by of Feb 2015. Poured into a mason jar.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with 1/2 finger of head

Smell: Hop citrus and some lemon zest with biscuit

Taste: Hop bitterness up front that has a fruit peel zest to it and some spicy malt notes in the middle with a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with some lingering bitterness

Overall: A solid pale ale that is complex, but doesn't fall apart which helps it to stand out.

Had high hopes for this Rye PA, as I love me some rye in any form. However, it's not very well executed.
The rye seems left behind, but in it's place is a slightly skunky pilsner/pale malt flavor with minimal
hop presence. Reminds me of a very mediocre English Pale Ale. Highest marks for nice carbonation, mouthfeel,
color, and lacing. Taste is bland skunk adjunct. Not an old bottle btw. Drink by 12/14....
