On tap at the George St ale house in New Brunswick, NJ
Arrives in a frosted pint glass. Copper colored with a neat half fnger of foam on top. Initially aroma is dull due to the temperature.
Nice spicy rye flavor punctuated by a sharp, crisp, hop bite. This beer has a great combination of spicy rye, caramel malt, evergreen hop flavor, and a huge bitter bite. Truly complex and changing as it warms.
All the flavors work well together and complement each other. The hop flavor is the real star here, and there is just enough sweetness to prevent this from being an unbalanced palate wrecker. World class.
Serving type: on-tap
