3.65/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a nice golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades rather fast leaving a decent leave of foam on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with some hints of a mainly a bready smell along with a bit of a citrus hoppy smell. Some other light peppery rye smalls are there as well with just a hint of pine.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and light rye taste mixed with a tangerine sweetness and some grapefruit upfront. There is a little bit of caramel that is later lost as it is buried by more citrus tangerine and grapefruit hop. All the while the rye builds a bit with it bringing along with it some lighter hop flavors of pine. In the end, with the bittering of the grapefruit hop and the moderateness of the rye flavors, one is left with a somewhat moderately fruity, bready rye, and decently bittered grapefruit hop taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. Both are rather nice for the mix of rye bread flavors as well as the hops and makes for a nice easy drinker.

Overall – A rather easy drinking sweeter and more moderate rye brew. A nice one to try if you get a chance.

Cool looking can. Much better that many beers are now in can. More convenient. That said let's give a whirl. Psst goes the top and I get a citrusy hops smell. Pours into a handy glass to a deep yellow with a very large-and-in-charge off white head. On the taste this brew starts with a great heavy mouthfeel upfront with contrite bitterness of hops that dominates. There is some malt in the background but this brew is primarily scotch like hops with a thick malt base. Not complex, but a very tasty brew for the hophead.

3.06/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Bright yellow in color with a little haze. About a inch of foam on a moderate pour.

Bright tropical fruit scent. As it warms, yeasty scent becomes noticeable.

Predominant taste is resin. In fact, it's rather one dimensional.

For all the foam and lacing, the mouthfeel is very thin and watery.

I think the beer would benefit from a little sweetness. It's drinkable, not interesting enough to drink more than one.
