On draft at the brewery, pours a dark cola brown, almost opaque, no head, very thin and oily looking.

The nose is earthy, pine, rye, and grain. Lots of toast, straw and malt. The flavor is earthy hops, toasted bread, sweet pepper, and rye. This drinks very smooth and balanced. It is full in flavor, but not heavy and drinkable despite the time of the year.

I like this, but prefer more rye and grass to be present than this one lets on.

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.

This beer poured a little darker than expected but quite clear, with good sustaining creamy head, significant lacing.

I couldn't get much from the nose, but the beer starts off a little bitter, tending towards my thought of an ESB. But it doesn't turn that way, and instead the initial taste lingers steady on the tongue. There are maybe some berry notes in the tart-tending bitterness, but balanced by an earthiness the turns into the rye-beer taste I expected. This taste is subtle, though, making an appearance but fading in the back.

This beer grew on me a bit as I drank it, but didn't jump out as anything special. I'd have it again and will try another of their beer.

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.

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.
