Not typically my style but very well done. Red and rye fans will be very pleased with this. Nice light and approachable body with plenty of rye bite on the backend. Was pleasantly surprised.

From the 1 pint bottle. Sampled on January 18, 2015.

The pour is an unfiltered or at least hazy reddish-brown color under a long-lasting tremendous off-white head.

The aroma has a nice rye grain malt note following immediately by earth and pine hops, yeast, and a slight meaty fruit character.

The body is medium or better and smooth.

The rye begins the tasting experience and then there is a boastful earthy and pine bitter bite lingering at the end.

Poured from an updated bottle purchased at the brewery.

A: dark Amber with a 2 finger white fluffy head
S: piney hops and heavy dose of rye. Some mango.
T: malt comes through with some hops.
M: medium body/carb.
O: excellent beer. I also picked the IPA but actually like the rye beer more. Glad I picked up two bottles of the rye. I will definitely get more next time I pass through New Hampshire.
