Oh my. We have a legitimately wet-hopped beer here.

Amazing oily character with a nice spicy tone to it. Great earthy base to it. I'd love to know what hops they used in this one. I'll look it up later. For now, this is a very nice beer.

This is my 2nd brew from these guys and I am now on a mission to try all things Helltown. My new favorite brewery out of the Pittsburgh area, or anywhere for that matter.

LOOK: Amber colored ale with an off white lather. Leaves a little lace and exhibits a fine clarity.

SMELL: Toffee, chocolates, floral hops, pine, grapefruit and mildly sweet smelling.

TASTE: Delicious flavors of hop and robust malt. Grapefruit, pine, and a spicy rye. Rich nutty, chocolatey malts are coming out more as it warms. Finishes more on the bitter side, with a heaping helping of resinous, earthy, pine-like hops.

FEEL: Medium bodied, somewhat crisp and very satisfying. Drinks easily given the strength.

OVERALL: Another high quality offering from the greater Pittsburgh area outfit. This is a world class brew and honestly, I feel a bit spoiled that this is a local offering.

Typing this review due to "outlier" notification.

Extremely grainy...hoppiness was mild at best...no real discernible rye qualities about this beer other than perhaps the mouthfeel. Not one of the better rye beers I've had. Maybe the keg is old? Was on tap at Blue Dust.
