32oz growler from Whole Foods into a pint glass twice watching Breaking Bad.

Autumn leaf brown with some bronzness to it. A nice amount of dark tan bubbles form a full head of condensed foam that broke up leaving a cap, no lace.

This is brand new to my knowledge so freah grassy semi piney hops are up front with a sense of rye action in between some pale malt. Not really on the citrusy side of things. Down to earth.

Up front piney earthy hops mixed with small rye hints. Hints of rye bread with pale malts. The hop bite stays throughout and afterwards. This is more bitter than sweet, A rye IPA perhaps. Some grass in the after after taste.

A touch bitter. Starts off some what smooth than goes bitter and finishes quite dry. A step above light bodied crisply carbed. More rye may have evened the field but as is, the bittering hops are big. Not kill yourself bitter, but it's there. The aftertaste is a bit much and needs taming.

Very drinkable although not hugely ryed up, it's there but masked under the green hops. 6.8 is a bit high but I finished two pints, no problemo.

On tap at Capone's...

A - A medium bronzed color with a mild haze to it... Modest carbonation throughout... A slightly creamy off-white head lingers atop but doesn't stick around for too long...

S - A definant attention grabber... Earthy... Piney Hops... A very hop forward scent profile... A mild spicy rye kick... Cracker and bready malts...

T - A surprisingly pungent earthy hop character dominates the palette... The mild rye spiciness takes a distant back seat to the hop... Also present are some bready malts and a faint grainy component...

M - Medium bodied... Distinctive... Resiny... Mild carbonation... Pungent... A hop attack on the tongue that really doesn't let up until you finish the glass...

D - A little bit too much of a hop forward offering for this to be more drinkable... None the less this is one is still quite tasty... A nice offering from Manayunk brewing...

Appearance is brownish rustic copper with a finger of head. The head retained well along the edge of the glass. The nose is hoppy, but I did not detect any rye notes. The taste had some limited hints of rye spiciness, but the hops really drive the flavor of this offering. The hops are fairly pronounced for a single IPA (or "rye" PA, if you will).
