Found the last two bottles in the area for the season...

Pours a deep amber color with a little head and leaves moderate lacing on the glass.

Smells very fruity, maybe apricot, or peach like.

Tastes of rye, with some citrusy, piney hops and some hints of fruit with some hints of caramel and piney hops on the way out. Great use of rye, and overall, quite an exceptional beer.

Moderate body and lighter carbonation, goes down fairly smooth.

Overall, a very solid offering and I will definitely pick some more up either next year, or sooner if I can find it.

A - Copper, clear, with a light white head and very extensive lacing.

S - Fruit, primarily grapefruit, and cardamom spice, a hint of grain and malt sweetness.

T - Grapefruit flesh and pith, combined with a subtle caramel malt note, that fades to a spicy bread line, cardamom again like the nose, but also white pepper. The close is more bitter, with a slight note of chalk.

M - Crisp, clean, hiding its high ABV well, and with only a mild drying.

O - Generally, I am always a bit concerned about rye ales, because I am not a huge fan of rye breads, but it is amazing how different the two can be. This suggests a spicy DIPA, more than anything, and it is a tasty and well-balanced one, too.

Slightly opaque orangey apricot colored with an oatmeal colored head that settles slowly. Aroma of bready malt, ripe fruit, piney hops, orange rind, dark bread, and alcohol. A bit of alcoholic solvent vapors which detract. Full mouthfeel, a bit tingly. Decent beer overall, not my fave from ST.
