The advent of the Rye Beer style has finally given me something to look forward to other than a steady diet of AIPAs and even if it comes in a bottle, I will give it a try.

From the bottle: "Double Rye Ale"; "Brewed with 3 varieties of hops and 5 types of malts".

My aggro pour created just better than a finger of dense, tawny head with good retention. Color was a button-bright, beautiful coppery-amber (SRM = > 13, < 17). Nose had a big black pepper and peppermint bite and my mouth was already beginning to water at the prospect of this one! Mouthfeel was silky smooth and the minty pepperiness was like a celebration on my poor, aching tongue. The finish left me literally breathless, like I had been drinking mouthwash, in terms of its intensity. I was minty fresh and so was this beer. The lacing that began to form in the glass was beautiful and sticky and I found myself not worrying about getting it off.

I'm not sure if there are rules about what a rye beer should be like, but if there are, this one broke all the rules. It has loads of IPA-like hops, and thus, it is better than any rye ever, as long as breaking rules is OK. If you wanted authentic, this isn't right.

It opens pretty and nearly clear. Good head and lace. The aroma is hinting already of the hoppy IPA-ish treat to come. The taste completely succumbs to the over the top IPAness. The aftertaste is finally dominated by a rye beer taste.

This is definitely a unique beer. It is huge and over the top but completely drinkable. Another Southern Tier triumph.
