12 Oz bottle. Date on it. Poured into summit glass.

Deep ruby-copper color, small, uneven, airy head. Smell is pine and oak, and maybe plastic. Taste is bitter and resinius, earthly sweet but spiced. Lemony hops compliment the spicy rye and char.

Very bitter, almost to its detriment.

Pours a deep but transparent brown. Plenty of lacing.

Aroma of grainy rye. Then citrus. Pleasant but very subtle.

Tastes of earthy grains followed by citrus notes. Taste and nose are very similar.

Crisp, dry mouthfeel.

Assuming this is a spring seasonal and it is fitting.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A- Inch tall dense off-white head, deep ruby red body. Crazy sticky lacing all over, head retention is there throughout. Really is a nice looking beer.

S- Big spicy rye notes, easily identified. Almost getting a methol whiff.

T- Packs the rye flavor in a relatively small ABV frame, something that I find pleasing. Hop profile is minimalistic to most rye beers, comparatively speaking.

M- Medium mouthfeel, medium/medium-low carbonation.

D/O- Good session-able beer here. I've always enjoyed Summit beers for what they are, good, wholesome, drinkable beers.

3.86/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Pint.

Appearance: Somewhat dark amber-copper with decent off-white head.

Smell: Massive rye aroma, with light biscuit, caramel and citrus.

Taste: Bready and spicy rye right out of the gate, with some semi-sweet caramel malts to round out the backbone. Light but sharp citrus adds an extra layer that lingers at the finish, along with more spiciness. Bitterness is low.

Feel: Moderate carbonation with medium body that is just slightly on the thin side. Mostly dry finish.

Overall: Certainly not as good as the old India Rye Ale from the Unchained Series (this one isn't as IPA like), but still a solid addition to Summit's lineup and also a nice lower abv choice for the depressing late winter months.
