4.03/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- a good amber color with decent head retention.

S- the hops are pretty straight forward and the rye announces itself without question.

T- the taste sticks pretty close to the smell. good balance for a brew of this style.

M- coats your entire palate. if the rye taste isn't your thing you will absolutely hate this beer.

O- solid beer. a slight step below others of this particular style (most notably Founder's Red's Rye) but generally a balanced delicious choice.

3.63/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a medium golden with a lingering, frothy ivory head.

Aroma is slightly soapy, peppery, and rye spicy.

Flavor reveals floral hops, with a bitter, peppery, finish. The malt backbone is lightly toasted, with sweet hints of caramel.

Though rye spiciness is evident, it doesn't overpower. Very drinkable.

3.94/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

I poured a can into a pint glass.

Appearance- Slightly hazy golden color with two fingers worth of foamy head. The heads lingers for a few minutes then slowly fades to a half inch cap and leaves a fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Grapefruit hop aroma with a hint of spiciness.

Taste- Moderate grapefruit and grassy hop bitterness with some rye spiciness and a hint of caramel malt sweetness. It has just enough of a hop presence for flavor but not so much as to be overpowering. The slight spiciness and sweetness add a nice twist.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation. Crisp with a dry finish.

Overall- A good thirst quenching beer. This is one of the better rye beers that I've tried and worth having again.

3.96/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: An impressive pour, with a foamy meringue of a head that squats atop the cloudy goldenstraw colored liquid

Smell: Gently spicy with a hint of lemon

Taste: Opens biscuity, with a citrusy mix of lemon and white grapefruit developing; in the middle, the peppery and spicy tones from the rye take the beer in another direction; a hint of sweetness underneath

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I found myself pleasantly surprised by this beer; the rye was handled deftly and added a nice angle to the other tones
