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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
