Got this is in 2 trades here. This one is from mjl21...thanks Mike!
A- Poured in a pint glass. Nice dark dark amber beer with 1/4 off white tannish head. Good sticky lacing that clung to the glass.
S- Nice piney hop smell to it. Tons of sour rye undertones to this which I expected. Kind of a sweeter underbody to this as well (both malts and hops).
T- Nice bitter hop bite to this. Big pine taste along with some sweeter citrus hops as well. A little bit of malt background but this is overpowered by the hops. Of course a nice rye taste at the end. Little alcohol feel to it.
M- Good medium mouthfeel to this. Nice pine hoppy taste that coats the mouth and leaves it after the sip. Along with the hop taste the rye sourness always sticks around too. Good carbonation that leaves the beer moving good over the tounge.
D- This is a very drinkable beer that I love. I am starting to be more into rye beers and this is a fantastic beer for the style. I will be looking to trade for this again very soon.
