Pours rich copper with a fading head.
Nose shows lots of malt with bready characters and some spicy, toasty rye. Lovely. Also some soft earthy hops.
Very similar flavours, with powerful toasty and spicy rye alongside a spicy, earthy hop hit. Great length.
Nice moderate carbonation.

22 ounce bomber. Decanted into a pint glass.
Appearance: Almost perfectly clear deep amber/copper color. Thin, fleeting head that clings to the side of the glass.
Smell: Extraordinarily faint. Really have to hunt for it. There’s a bit of bready rye in the nose. I also get a bit of mineral water. When I really dig for it, I get a very faint citrus smell. The hops are almost absent in the aroma.
Taste: Very nice. Bready. Dry with a peppery rye finish. Maybe a bit of honey. No bitterness to speak of. Leaves almost no lingering aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Thin. Sharp carbonation.
Overall: Very nice session-able, rye pale. I really want to like it more considering its credentialing, but it seems like someone turned it’s volume down. Muted, I guess. To be fair the label says “Bottled 07.30.12”, so it likely has already passed its prime. I’m going to look for it on draft.

Transparent copper color. Descent head on the pour with weak retention. Some lacing.

Bready malt and pine scent.

Solid rye bread malt character, grainy and spicy. Assertive hop notes of pine and herbs. Very well balanced.

Light to medium bodied with a sharp carbonation. Feel really compliments the flavor profile.

Good brew. Interesting flavors and easy to drink.
