Surprised to see this beer on tap in Buffalo, thanks merc for the heads up...
The beer pours a clear, rich looking amber with a wispy white head that laces poorly. The nose is quite tropical with heavy notes of grapefruit and candied pineapple. There are very pronounced aromatic hops, which makes this my type of RIPA...
The taste doesn't disappoint either with just the right touch of tropical bitterness, candy sweetness, and a distinct rye spiciness. Medium bodied and well carbonated; the aftertaste is a pleasantly biting bitter with just a touch of burning ethanol. This is an exceptional beer that makes great use of the rye grain to build up an interesting body and taste profile. I'd absolutely try this beer again, but appreciate that it's draught only and not seen often.
Serving type: growler
