3.18/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Very handsome, deep, burnt orange color and a fine lasting head. Smells of spicy hops with a slight roasted malt characteristic. Tastes, surprise surprise, balanced and subdued, as with most SA brews. Bittering hops and earthy rye spice are absolutely present, but by no means super impressive on the palate. The malt backbone keeps these aspects from being too intense, but I don't know why they were so concerned with actually brewing a flavorful beer.

Again, a simple, balanced take on the style from SA. Drink it if it's there, but there are many more exciting and impressive examples out that I would recommend before this one.

4/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours an opaque copper color, with a white head.

S: Spicy rye, bready malt, a subdued floral and piney hop character in the nose.

T: More spicy rye, some wheat, some bready malt, hop flavor is still piney, floral and subdued.

M: Medium bodied, a bit harsh.

O: Recommended if you want a rye beer that doesn't have a strong hop character to it. This beer really focuses on the rye and other malts. That said, I enjoyed it.
