look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Apearance - Pours a reddish dark amber with a 2 finger off white head, medium retention and good lacing. Suspended yeast and hop particles present in the glass.
Nose- Pine, grapefruit and orange hops, big and in your face.
Palate- Strong hops up front, then the malt and rye build up, starting in the middle, but hops are still the showcase here. The rye plays nicely with the hops, augementing and enhancing them at the same time, adding depth and character.
Mouthfeel- Medium body and carbonation. Slight astringency/resinous character.
Drinkability- This is my first rye beer and I want more.
Serving type: bottle
