Poured on-tap at The Tap, the beer was served in a nonic pint. The beer is a ruby-brown coloring with a filmy, cream colored head. Clingy all over the glass. Nose of toasted grains, tangy caramel, and subtle, bitter hops. Flavors of roasted caramel and toffee sweetness forward, with a bready undertone and bitter highlights of hops and chocolate. Booze highlights, with tangy sweet notes into the aftertaste. Smooth, full bodied, with a bitter, dry, smooth finish. Very layered and dynamic.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy brownish color to it. It has almost no head, just a thin layer of off-white bubbles witch leaves next to no lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of spicy rye malts, sweet caramel, citrus and floral hops.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some rye malts, sweet caramel, citrus and floral hops with a decent bitterness.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a stemmed goblet.
Appearance: ruddy medium-brown hue with just a little touch of haze and a moderate effervescence. Head formation was minimal.
Smell: rich cereal aroma with plenty of spicy rye character. It's got a definite sweet rye bread thing going on, not unlike a kvass, really. It may not be for everyone, but I happen to rather like it.
Taste: plenty of rye bread character with a fair bit of bitterness at the end, although not overly hoppy as the "Spicy and Hoppy" label suggest. Sweetness is surprisingly low; this is a dry ride to bitter ryetown. An interesting take on the style.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body with an exceedingly low level of carbonation. I don't know if this is intentional; I can only speak to the bottle I purchased. Creaminess is nil, although it's not entirely insipid. Disappointing.
Overall: there are some interesting flavors going on here, but overall it's not much to write home about. I may or may not finish the bottle.
