3.8/5 rDev -6.2%
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a very nice head that provides good lacing action
Smell: Biscuity malt, with a tinge of caramel; fruity and spicy
Taste: Biscuity, up front, with a growing caramel presence; at the same time, fruity, in the middle, with earthy and spicy tones (the hops and the rye) developing; well-balanced finish
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: An easy drinker, with good flavor; but not particularly distinctive

I purchased this at Brass Rail, enjoyed chilled from a tulip out of the 12oz bottle.
The color is hazed apricot with 3 fingers plus of off white head with rocky topography, lace clings ok and bead is average sized with decent retention. The smell is very fruity almost yeasty with some strong citrus aromas from the hops with both lemon and grapefruit notes. The feel is good with moderately high carbonation and slightly higher than medium bitternsess with mild sweetness and mostly dry finish.
The taste is both fruity yeast with moderately bitter hop flavor almost grassy taste with light astringency from a citrus dominant hop profile. The taste of rye is pleasant but supports the hops mostly with a light sweetness in the taste. The alcohol is noticeable slightly in the taste but only as it increases in temperature with a mild tangerine taste of the hops combined with yeast. Overall this is an interesting beer it filled th glass with foam so I had to back off as I poured but intense with hops and a little warm for the strength. I consider this a decent rye beer as it is pretty quaffable and straddles the line of RYE pale and IPA.

Have had this beer a couple times on draft in DC.
Pours a bronze color with a minor head.
Odor is of fruit, hops and maybe a little malt.
Taste is a nice combination of rye, hop bitterness and some fruitiness. The hops are present a little more at the beginning. The rye adds a nice balance overall and helps with a nice finish.
Mouth feel is somewhat light. Overall and very good and well balanced. Worth checking out for sure.
