12 oz bottle into a SA Perfect Pint

A - Coppery reddish pour with a dense, creamy looking off-white head. Good retention and a thick, sticky lace

S - Light pine and citrus scents in the nose with hints of a malty sweetness.

T&M - Lighter medium body with a defined crispness. Hop profile contains pine and citrus, and is a bit bolder then I would expect for a rye. Malt is also boldly present with a balancing sweetness. Finish is clean with just a hint of bitter and sour. I'm finding the rye character to be lacking...there is maybe just that hint of sour in the finish. Throughout the course of the drink a spicy character occasionally appears, but not enough to make me think "rye".

O - Even though there was not enough rye character for me, I still found this to be quite enjoyable, and very easy to drink. Negative points for being away from what I want for a rye, but bonus points for being overall tasty and easy to drink.

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.
