look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Single bottle poured into a pint glass, pouring clear and deep straw/golden in color with a light touch of chill haze. Half inch cap shows moderate retention and light lace.

Aroma of light citrus hops but not very pungent. Amarillo dry hops sit atop what otherwise comes across as more of an English Pale body. Taste of rye is subtle as well up front and seems to compete with other specialty malts in the mix. Yet there is a pleasant spice and graininess likely from the rye and hops as well.

Decent feel with said texture which segues to a citrus hop close. Spice, fruit and then a neutral sweetness to finish. Malt depth again comes across as more English in style but easy drinking Pale Ale nonetheless.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Picked up at Sidney's Wine Cellar, Decatur Street, NOLA. Poured into a plastic go-cup during French Quarter Fest.

A: Amber, opaque, with a tan half finger head that pops out of its shell. Decent lacing

S: Hops dominate, but the rye is fighting to get to the top. Earthy, piney. Resiny.

T: Love that hop/rye mix. The rye really blends well, giving it a smooth, less bitter finish. Sessionable.

M: Light to medium with medium carbonation.

O: A decent session beer. Less hoppy than some of Terrapin's other hop bombs.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Very clear amber or golden pour, at least one inch head on the beer

S: predominantly hoppy - spicy-floral, fresh citrus and wood. Neutral fruity overtone, a background scent of cereal malt later emerges

T: spicy, 'herbal' hops up front, potent but long rounded bitterness - not malt-sweet, all hop resins and acids. a ginger-snap like malt flavor shows up late

M: fairly light, fleece-soft body, fills the mouth with suds, excellent....real stealth dry

O: given time, a bunch of pleasant aromas and flavors present themselves. Love Rye beers this one is no exception.
