Out of the bottle it foamed up quickly leaving four fingers of head on a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
The smell is wet hay and rye.
The taste is strong rye and bitterness. It is bold beginning to end.
Low carbonation and medium body. Short finish.
I like rye and I liked this beer.

Wax-capped bottle picked up from the Pearl Whole Foods in Portland, OR. Drunk on the 4th of July, which seems appropriate, as it has what must be the most stupidly patriotic label I've ever seen.

Pours a very hazy golden colour, with a filmy head of white froth. Lacing is decent, however, leaving a patchy latticework down the sides of the glass. Relatively firm body too, which holds its carbonation well. Overall, it's decent without being particularly exciting.

Nose is great. Lovely sharp, pointed hops characters, almost New Zealand in nature, giving a crisp citrus and fragrant passionfruit note, above some dusty, peppery notes from the rye. Coming from the Antipodes, I'm much more inclined to attribute this to our side of the world. It's unusual in an "American" Rye, although I'd love to see more of the American hops which produce this type of aroma.

Taste is similar, and really nicely balanced. Sharp fruity hops dominate, giving greenness mingled with sweet but piquant citrus characteristics. Light peppery grain comes through adding almost no discernable body or sweetness to the brew, but nonetheless providing support for the hops. Very clean and exceptionally refreshing.

Feel is light but clean and staying out of the way of the main event.

Awesome beer—a really punchy, hoppy but balanced and drinkable Rye beer. The rye makes its presence felt, but like all the other characters, manages to sit nicely in coherence with everything. Top stuff.
