3.84/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- Pours a deep amber from the 12oz bottle into a tumbler with a murkiness and visible chunks suspended in the brew. A thick, fluffy off-white crown flies up to over two fingers with good retention. Massive pillows of lace at the top of the glass followed by big webs and drizzle.

S- A balance is struck here between malts and hops probably just a bit shaded toward the grains. Toasty and caramel malts lead off with citrus and herbal hops rounding it out. Bready yeast.

T- Bitterness opens up here and provides some depth to the hops which provide orange peel, herbal tea and floral notes. Caramel, toasted, slightly nutty and spicy malts with just a hint of fruit and some bread coming from the yeast.

MF- Medium bodied overall with a foamy overall texture. Carbonation comes in at a medium-high level and it all finishes with a bitter bite.

A balanced Amber that masks its ABV well and presents a balanced flavor between bitter orange zesty hops and toasted Amber grains. The rye adds just enough spiciness without drowning out the other flavors in the beer.

Pours a hazy reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, candied citrus zest, and slight herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with rye, caramel, and candied citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice balance of rye and hop characterisitcs.

Serving type: bottle.
