3.8%, no sign of a bottle date but released less than a month ago.
A: Pours a hazy light amber. Tall, fizzy and frothy offwhite head. Head fizzes out at a moderate pace, decent lacing and head retention.
S: Spicy, herbal pine and spicy rye at the same time. Good combination.
T: More of the same, lots of pine and herbal hops up front. Has a bit of sulfur-like pilsner malt character oddly enough. I'm not sure why, but I swear I taste it. Spicy rye malt in the middle and finish. Lots of pine in the finish, including lingering in the dry aftertaste.
M: Surprisingly medium bodied for only 3.8%. Dry, smooth and decently bitter and spicy at the same time.
O: One of the best of the new fad session IPA(L)s I've had. Way better than the Lagunitas and Founders examples which is pretty high praise. The rye gives it additional complexity and the mouthfeel is crisp and smooth without being too weak. Drinks like a rye pilsner, which is a good thing.

A - A light off-white head sits on top of a amber body, Not much lacing remains, just specks here and there on the pint glass.
S - Nice, deep malt aroma off the top, doesn't overwhelm. There's almost a nuttiness in there.
T - It took me a few sips to wrap my head around this one. There's an immediate bitterness with floral notes for sure, but they hang in the background. What you come away with is something very subdued.
M - Medium to light mouthfeel here. I was expecting something a bit heavier and was surprised on the lightness, almost wateriness, of this beer.
O - Not sure if I was wrong in expecting something a bit more full here, but the taste just doesn't seem to blossom in this Rye IPL.
