12oz. bottle poured into a straight sided pint glass.
A- a nice translucent amber with a red tint to it. Thin white head that stick around a good bit. Very nice lacing down the glass.
S- likely the low point of the brew. Not much going on other than some light herbal hops, and maybe some sweet malt.
T- some prickly herbal hops bite up front, and are soothed out with some sweet light carmel malts. Long bitter finish, that's surprisingly not overly dry.
M- The high point of the brew. Stoudt's has a way with a creamy mouthfeel, and it really shines on this brew. Tight carbonation that dances on the tongue, but again, that creamy feeling finishes the swallow.
O- Honestly, if the malt bill were a little bit more balancing, this would be top notch. As is, it's certainly well crafted, and tasty, just not world class such as Troegs Hopback.

Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear deep red with an off-white head. Lacing is great although the head retention is so-so.
Aroma is on the faint side but there it has a slightly sweet note with some biscuit and a touch of rye.
The flavor follows the aroma with more rye, hints of some moderately toasted malt and a very high bitterness. Hops are somewhat spicy nicely complimenting the rye notes. Finish is very dry.
Overall, a decent beer but honestly it is pretty average and nothing really sticks out. I do love rye beers but this one is just a tad watery and a bit unbalanced.

3.45/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
The aroma is yeast, caramel malts, light pine and a hint of tea. The flavor is grapefruit, citrus, fruit, mild hop resin notes, mild tea, malts and a long and bitter/dry finish. Overall this was decent and a little better than average as far as Ambers go.
