Pours an effervescent copper a billowy 3 finger cream colored head. Good lacing & head retention

S: Some pepper & graininess

T: Nice rye pepperiness up front, along with a little of caramel& dryness. Slight astringent notes as this warms, grain husks, white pepper, a whisper of pine & orange peel & dryness, plus grassy notes. Finishes dry, crisp with nice rye snap.

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, pretty nice balance

Pretty easy to drink, nothing mind-blowing here. Hell I'd probably prefer this in the warmer months. Makes me think "poor-man's" red's rye substitute

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dense, off-white head with great persistence. A HUGELY aromatic mix of floral hops and rye. Crystal clear burnt umber color. A deep, rich rye malt with bright, grapefruit hop bitterness cutting right through it - quite the start. Peaks into a grapefruit, yet floral hoppiness as the rye malt builds and comes back. The finish is lingering hop bitterness and spicy rye.

Jesus, this is awesome. It is PERFECTLY hoppy (a great balance of hop aroma, flavor, and balanced bitterness), and JUST aggressive enough with the rye to cut through the hops. Masterfully balanced; not too hoppy, not too malty. I highly recommend this.

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

Appearance: Clear brown, ok head.

Smell: Dark toast, rye, coffee, spice.

Taste: Rye bread, spicy, earthy, piney. Big rye flavor.

Overall: A new seasonal from Summit. Definitely whacks you over the head with rye flavor. Big rye bread all over the place. Fits in pretty well with the season, easing out of winter with a different kind of spiciness than the Winter Ale.
