Had a bottle from the local store.

A: Pours an aggressive 2 finger head and leaves some lace when drank.. Looks orange n cloudy

S: Pick up the rye right away and light fruit

T: Crisp and keeps the rye bite to it.. bitter finish

M: Medium carbonation and a solid thickness

O: A must try, on par with its competition in Rye's

This is strikes me as a different kind of take on rye beers. There is an interesting slightly spicy earthy thing going on, as opposed to the direct spiced tones that a lot of rye beers seem to have. Hearty. I kinda dig it. And, frankly, I wish there were more rye beers around there to try.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a nice 2-3 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention that reduces to a thick cap. Some decent lacing on the glass. There was a slow cascade of carbonation as I poured this. Aromas of big pine, rye spiciness, biscuit, herbal, caramel, and citrus. Some nice and well balanced aromas. Taste of big rye spiciness, caramel, biscuit, herbal, grapefruit, pine, and earthiness. Strong bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of rye spiciness, biscuit, caramel, and citrus for a bit. Good balance of flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slightly thick mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming after the finish. Overall this is a nice and very enjoyable rye offering. Apparently this bottle was a bit old, but it held up nicely!
