Bottle to Rock art pint glass
A: golden yellow honey colored that is fairly cloudy for a lager but translucent with a big fluffy white head
S: what I mostly smell is the hops which are flowery and fruity very nice. After some time it fades to a stronger malt and rye smells.
T:there is some hop flavor upfront but its mostly rye with a strong malt backbone but there is some hop bitterness in the finish though it is light.
M: smooth and watery as most lagers feel but there is a sense of oilyness and even a hint of pine resinw so there are elements of ipa feel in a lager
O: this is a cool well done spin on a rye ipa basically lager that maintains a lot ipa feel and taste with some rye.

Poured into pokal
A: Golden sun yellow with large, creamy, off white head. Leaves large amounts of spider web lacing.
S: Spicy rye, with underlying notes of tropical fruit hops. Hint of bubblegum from the Sorachi Ace.
T: Rye spice and tang right up front, and an assortment of hop flavors following. The Sorachi Ace flavor is most dominant, with its tones of bubblegum and hint of dill. Cascade hop flavor is lurking around as well with flavors of pine resin. Not much in the way of malt flavors except for the overwhelming rye tone.
M: Relatively clean on the palate and ever so slightly viscous. Moderate to little carbonation.
O: Quite a unique beer, let alone a lager. The Sorachi Ace threw me, as I was expecting this beer to be relatively straightforward. Props of JA for taking this beer in a different direction and making it one-of-a-kind.
