This is a very clear, transparent yellow color...gold tints, that carries a thin white head. Pine and wood smell...hops. I didn't get a grain, rye scent in the brew, but it did show up later, in the taste. Moderate sweetness, balanced with a strong hop bitterness. Lots of fleshy fruit in the taste. Lingering bitter hop finish and a firm body.

A - Rockin full 1+ inch of head atop of some clear bright yellow beer. Mild carbonation bubbles float to the top.
S - Not very much rye or pale malts, just some hops and sweeter malts. Very mild if anything.
T - Has some rye tones but they don't play well with the hops making for a medicinal bitter finish. The overall taste isn't bad, crisp, sweet, and other than the finish not bad.
M - Light to medium body not bad.

Overall not a bad rye ale, the actual aspect is quite hidden and after a few sips it really starts to be more of an enjoyable pale ale. Not bad.

Poured the can into a regular pint glass. Poured a slightly hazy gold color appealing to the eye for sure. Aroma came across as slightly spicy, not as much as i expect from a rye but it was definetely noticeable, light floral and citrus notes are also present. Flavor was hop forward with those floral notes coming back into play, rye became noticeable towards the end, was really looking forward to much more of a rye flavor. Finish is slightly bitter and citrus.
Overall solid beer as a whole, would drink it again, but not what I have come to expect from a rye.

Pours a clear yellowish copper with good carbonation and okay head. Smells mostly of lemon & citrus hops with an underlying spiciness I'm assuming is from the rye. I don't get a lot of straight up rye aroma but I think it adds a little complexity with the hop notes. Tastes is much of the same as the aroma. Lots of citrus hops upfront with some spiciness. Decent amount of bitterness is there, but I get sort of a long pronounced sweet lemony taste. Would prefer a tad more dryness, but then again, that's how I personally like my beers. A great summer beer. Pretty easy drinking and something you would want on a nice warm day. A very solid beer. Would try this one again.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Gets big points just on the head alone. Pours a gigantic head, that settles to an incredible frothy peak. Rich amber color, with good lacing. The nose is complex, good hop kick with a nice rye undertone, with hints of citrus. Nose is suggestive of taste, with good amount of hops and nice bitterness. The rye is certainly there, which I like, and makes its presence known towards the end, a nice lingering coating on the tongue. Mouthfeel is decent, warm and hazy with decent carbonation, slight milkiness. Overall, very good, especially if you're a fan of rye beers.

Poured this Rye Beer from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a hazy golden color , produced a excellent white head, very nice retention and left excellent lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted of citric and piney hops and spicy rye. Medium bodied, there was a nice average amount of spicy rye and a crisp lemon and grapefruit citric flavor. Not over the top, very easy to drink and would make an excellent session beer.
