The Hemp and the Hops didn't stand out as much as I thought, but I thought it was a very good beer, nonetheless. The consensus does not agree with me as the the beer has not rated well, but I thought it was balanced very well and it was a very smooth, quite drinkable beer.

I'd say that in the world or Rye Ales I am spoiled by Founders being down the road from my house. BUT I would definitely say that this was an exceptional beer for the genre. The head was nice and foamy, not too crazy, just right. The aroma was noisy with the hemp and hop scents that I was looking for and the taste was just edgy enough with rye that I was incredibly satisfied. I give this one a tryit for the beer lovers and a Must for the Rye beer lovers.

$1.79 for a 12oz bottle @ BevCo. "Malt beverage brewed with Hemp seeds". Interesting nomeclature. No specs per the website. Thick silty layer of yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Pours out to a slightly hazy burnt orange, forming a nice creamy light yellow head with excellent retention and very good solid lacing. Mild to moderate carbonation. The aroma is quite nice...a solid amber ale aroma, with fruity apple and peach notes akin to Bell's amber ale, with a nice toasty malt middle and delicate citric and piney hop notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and soft with a medium body...very creamy mouthfeel...really nice. The taste is a wonderful balance of the creamy mouthfeel, toasty malts, wet grain husk, honey, apricots and apples, a nice bitterness with lingering notes of toast and residual sugars in the aftertaste. The hops taste English in nature...guessing Kent Goldings.

This is really a solidly wonderful amber. Very drinkable. I could put back a 6'er of these no problem. I would definitely buy this again. Highly recommended.
