3.48/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured this into the Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass out of respect...I actually use this glass for lots of beers. Respectable two finger head that lasted quite a while, with some fine clinging lace. Color is a 11 on the SRM beer color chart. Smell is mostly of hops, lots of them, with a little wheat, and a touch of rye. Flavor leans to the hop side with flavors of grapefruit and lime, with a wheat bread taste next, and a faint hint of rye. I thought I would taste much more rye. Good full feeling in my mouth, smooth like cream with cling, and just about the right amount of zing. I was hoping for a little more rye flavor, but what I got from this beer was good, but not quite what I was hoping. Good flavor anyway, and if I see it again, I will get some.

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.
