Right out the bottle I got some a blast of interesting fruity aromas, I would guess that come from the hop choices in this ale. Like strawberry banana orange juice and canned pineapple juice. Really fun first impression.

It pours a rich copper color with a nice head that falls to a persistent covering.

In the flavor there is a nice malty base with more pineapple juice flavor. The hop bitterness is firm and balancing against the malt and juiciness from the hops.

The beer adds interest with some very light tea-like astringent bite (or is that a lingering bitterness from high-alpha hops? idk), peppery and cherry notes, as well as a drying impression something like diet cherry coke.

Overall impression is that this is a really fun beer with a lot of qualities that will keep you interested with every new sip. The balance is evident by the brew's ability to give you impressions of the nice base malts, the rye, as well as some really fun hop aromas and flavors. Would definitely buy this again.

"Dry, but with a creamy touch of Thai Palm Sugar and the spicy tang of Rye, all balanced by loads of the wackiest new Hops we could lay our hands on. Yep, it's an Original. And that's no sin." Brewed in the style of a Rye Ale. Available as a year round beer in 12 oz. 6 packs and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 50º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a frothy creamed head of a tannish white color over a red amber body with high clarity, mild haze and plentiful relaxed carbonation. The retention is very good, lacing is light and streaked. 4.25

(Smell) Aroma is a fair balance of malt and hop characteristics with aromatic floral, fruity and soapy hops with a modest bitterness atop a biscuity malt base with a subtle touch of rye for a slightly bready, somewhat tangy note to match. Potency is moderate. 4

(Taste) The flavor is considerably more malt-forward, with slick biscuit and tangy rye malt crowning an otherwise light and simple malt profile. The hop profile isn't quite as bright in the flavor, although the bitterness is still moderate and matched with the soft tanginess of the rye, generates more than enough bite to counter the sweet malt undertones. Finishes tangy and dry with a touch of peppery and herbal hop resin. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, lightly chewy, softly dry. Carbonation generates a subtle airiness for a slightly creamy, frothy mouthfeel. The body is medium+ for the style, medium+ amongst all beers. Balance is slightly tangy and bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is low and there are no off characters to note. 4.25

(Overall) This is quite the quality introduction for me to this brewery. A rye ale with quite a bit of bright hoppy flavor and bitterness to round it out. Very drinkable despite its above-average body and thorough flavor profile. Enjoy it young to appreciate it at the peak of its flavor. 4
