On tap at the brewpub in Lexington.
Large, durable and sticky off-white head over a dep golden body. Seemed a bit over-carbonated at first, but I concluded it was about right.

Tastes a bit better than it smells.. Moderately strong flavor appropriate for style.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Enjoyed on-tap @ Country Boy Brewing in Lexington, KY for $4. Tapped from a Creative Wooden Carved Tap Handle (they all are like this here) into a 16oz Pint Glass.

Aroma- Big hops, rye, and bit of grass all hit the nose at once. Rye was surprisingly the lightest character.

Appearance- Received with a 1 finger head that has average retention. Has a clear, golden colored body. Left a few suds behind.

Flavor- Light spiciness and hops begin this taste. Has a good amount of rye in here and then pushes toward a big hop finish. Medium-High Bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Bites with rye and then has a sweeter finish.

Overall Impression- A good overall Rye beer that was all over the place! Didn't mind but rather enjoyed trying to pick out all of the different characteristics.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear gold with a creamy, thick white head that lingers for quite some time.

S: Aromas of rye bread, black pepper, honey, lemon, lime, kumquat, and bitter orange fill the nose.

T: This ale opens with notes of biscuit, caramel, honey, black pepper, and rye bread, but these flavors quickly give way to an unbelievable assault of bitter, fruity hops. Notes of pine, juniper, bitter orange, kumquat, lemon, lime, grapefruit, and unripened pineapple absolutely throttle the palate. The finish is resinous, peppery, and intense with hugely bitter citrus notes blending with a nice rye bread flavor.

M: Medium-bodied, mildly oily, and resinous. Carbonation is gentle, but not lacking. Alcohol presence is mild.

O: This is an interesting APA. I especially appreciate how punchy and intense it is-it's almost like the brewers set out to prove that an APA can have as much hop character as an IPA. That being said, this ale is a touch rough on the palate. I like it, but I doubt I could drink any considerable amount of it.
