From a growler filled at Spirits, poured into a pint glass.
A- Pours a reddish brown color with a cream colored 1-finger head, some rings of lacing left as it goes down. The unfiltered look has plenty of bubbles.
S- A nice hop punch of citrus and pine. There are dark bready malts, dark fruits, and notes of alcohol.
T- Big malt backbone, dark and roasty. Grainy, dark fruits, some sweetness, then the hops drive the back end. Citrus, grapefruit, and pine make up the bitter end.
M- Medium feel, good carbonation and lots of body. All the flavor easily masks the 6.5% abv making it easy drinking. Very smooth for a hearty ale.
O- Smooth, hearty, drinkable, and just enough hop bitterness. Balanced.
Serving type: growler

Appearance: mahagony red in color with a 1/2" head that slowly falls to a thick surface covering.
Smell: malt sweetness is what you can detect with the nose.
Taste: light grainy malt profile with toffee, soft spiciness from the rye, dark fruit sweetness, some mild nuttiness, and a moderate bitterness which brings it into balance.
Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Light crispness to start, smoother and a bit dry at the finish.
Overall: for those that enjoy red ales, the rye kicks it up a notch and creates an enjoyable beer.
Serving type: on-tap
