3.75/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Light amber color, slightly hazy, with a small sticky head.
S: Hoppy, lots of resin/pine notes with a little dankness and some soapy notes (no, my glass is clean, nothing but hot water touches it). A slight rye note that seems to be lightly toasted unmalted rye rather than rye malt.
T: A respectable but not harsh hop bitterness up front followed by piney hops balanced by some spiciness and the smooth flavor of rye malt. Medium-dry, bitter finish.
M: Moderate carbonation and the slick body that rye malt lends. Finish is a tad too dry and bitter but that is splitting hairs.
O: A very drinkable beer with no real faults, just doesn't blow me away. I would buy it again. Would like to try this on draft.
Serving type: bottle
