3.79/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into my Schlafly tulip.

Appearance: rich amber brown hue with no haze and a light effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam with a nice lace. Pretty attractive!

Smell: big, lemony hop aroma atop a sweetish malt base. There's a little hint of the rye in the aroma as well. Not especially complex, but enticing.

Taste: big caramel malt flavor with citrusy, earthy and slightly dank hops. Bitterness is pretty balanced. The flavors are good, but the whole thing is a bit muddled. Not bad, but a bit unrefined.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good carbonation and a very good creaminess for the style. I like it.

Overall: this is a tasty beer, although I feel it lacks finesse. A decent drinker, but I don't think I'll seek this out again.

Poured Road Warrior Imperial Rye into a Pint glass.

A - Pours a cloudy amber with a half finger of off white head.

S - On first sniff I'm getting citrus, grapefruit, pine. A little spicy rye in there as well.

T - Thank god. Fantastic flavors of grapefruit, citrus, rye, pine. Mid palate getting even more spicy rye with some dankness. Aftertaste is smooth pine needles and more rye. Delicious!

M - Smooth medium to low carbonation with medium to heavy mouthfeel.

O - I like Rye IPA's, and this one is top notch. Highly Recommended! Cheers!
