22 oz bottle. Pours hazy copper orange with a big frothy creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready rye, some fruit and hops.

The flavor is sweet bready biscuit malts, rye spice, some fruit with slightly vegetal hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent rye pale.

Pours a beuatiful caramel/amber with a creamy white head that shows a nice will to live. The aroma shows off the strong malt basis with just hints of floral hops. The taste has the same profile as the aroma with just a small spiced note. Nice fullness on the palate. A very god pale ale with a small but well-executed twist.

Vintage 2014 per the bottle label..."Time" printed underneath the bottle cap...

Partially hazy, dark honey colored body topped with a thick, sticky, robust head (3.75). Rye spiciness initially and then a strong citric hop aroma; caramel (4.0). Nice blend of caramel malt sweetness with a zesty rye spiciness and tingly hop bitterness; slight citric tartness (3.75). Medium bodied; fairly dry finish (3.75).

Evenly balanced beer between the malts, grains, and hops regarding taste. Spicy, tart, and dry with a robust dark malt suggestion (perhaps the Munich malt used in the grain bill). A nice find along the Colorado Front Range and another reason to keep looking for some of those great Michigan beers...

Tasty beer. The rye is very much present and pleasant. The caramel taste goes well with the rye. I would pick this up again.
