BOD 8/31/13. Clear light amber pour with a slight dark ruby cast. Massive head with exceptional lacing and retention. Nice, but somewhat subtle, nose of caramel and rye over a spicy background. Heavy medium body with a nice oily creamy texture. Well carbonated with a nice effervescent finish. Even at one year of age, the flavor profile is outstanding with a complex balance. It begins with a spicy character that flows to nice rye notes. In the middle, caramel sweetness flows into a light hop flavor blend (dank, pine and citric) and light bitterness. The finish is long and leaves you with a nice rye spiciness over hop notes and bitterness. Even aged, this one is up there with the best.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 15, 2014.

The pour is fairly attractive with its medium amber color but there was not a lot of head to speak about.

The aroma tends to highlight the hops more than the rye with a forceful floral sensation and a soapy kind of scent that was slightly distracting. Double rye? Feels more like a DIPA.

The body is medium and has a kind of acidic astringency.

The taste does bring out a touch of those rye grains but this is really about the hops in my opinion. Floral, citrus, bitter hops.
