Just a good beer from Atlas. Easy to drink, clean all the way through. One of the best ales made in the DC region. Deserves another look from this community. (160 characters)

Had a sample of this beer on tap at Meridian Pint on Labor day, the debut for Atlas. The aroma was bright, fresh hops and the flavor was also dominated by hops with a little bite from the rye. Basically a rye IPA, in my opinion. Very drinkable. I would definitely try this one again. (283 characters)

Appearance was dark amber or reddish. Head was pretty solid and lasted a while.
Odor was a little on the lighter side as far as rye maybe. Hops, green and floral mostly.
Taste was good. More balanced than the odor. Rye was noticeable and added a lot to the beer. Hops making up the rest with green and floral(like odor). Some pine/resin as well, but not overdone. Mouth feel was medium bodied and present.
Overall a pretty good rye beer. Definitely worth a repeat. (465 characters)

On cask at Meridian Pint, Washington, DC, March 2014:

The menu noted that whole cone Simcoe hops were added to the cask.

The beer appeared to be a clear red color with a light, foamy, white head that had decent retention and produced some nice lacing.

The beer gave off a slightly pine hop aroma. I was expecting more rye than hop.

After smelling the beer, I expected a more hoppy taste, but did not get it. The beer had a nice, but not overpowering or excessive rye flavor to it. Reminded me more of an ESB or and English Bitter, but it was still enjoyable.

The beer was extremely smooth and easy to drink. I warmed up to the beer the more that I drank it. (664 characters)

Another beer courtesy of the captain of the canship, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy, dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of rye, hops. Taste is of sharp rye, piney hops, a bit of an unusual aftertaste, dry at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a slightly better than average beer. (337 characters)

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Deep mahogany colored, and slightly red but a bit of a hazy dark rust body color up to the light. Slightly clear but also a bit lifeless. Barely a one finger head forms, very tan with little lacing but manages a thin collar and puck. Basically looks ok, but nothing great.

Aroma gives to some dry grains, and a faint hint of spice. There seems to be a small sense of chocolate but it's very faint. Not particularly hop forward it seems as the can proclaims, but comes off decent enough.

Palate works out kind of surprisngly. Good sense of malt density as a milk chocolate like angle comes out in the mid palate. Finishes very spicy as the rye angle really starts to kick in, with a tannic grainy bitterness but it's a good contrast to counter a bit of the sweet malt that comes over. Hints of twiggy and bark like almost woody character, with some biting down dried grain sensations. Good density even if slightly milky.

Overall a rye beer I can kind of easily enjoy and no think over too much. (1,052 characters)
