Served in a snifter at Firkin.
Something tells me a grainstorm would be terrible to try to live through... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brown-garnet topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises dark greens, light roasted malts, light toasted rye bread, and mild grass. The taste brings in more of the same, with the greens coming in all salad strong and whatnot. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a good black rye IPA, one that certainly is a black rye IPA, but nothing exciting.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Black with a huge, steady brown head; good lacing
S: Tropical fruits explode as the cork comes out: pineapple, mango, grapefruit and then comes the spicy bready malts--man, this beer smells amazing
T: Tropical hop forward and those flavors then blend so well with the spicy rye--such a nice testament to how a beer can be hoppy and yet balanced; some alcohol becomes evident in the finish
F: Creamy and yet sticky; this is a nice feeling beer; such good texture from start to finish
O: A really nice beer; such a great example of what rye can add to a beer
Serving type: bottle
