3.5/5 rDev +2.6%
Bottle poured into a pint glass, left over from my summer stash. 1/5
Pours gold, dark edge but definitely see through. Light white foam sits atop and laces. Light malty nose hints of rye. Mild bitter note in the taste. Touch of sweetness. Caraway bread notes. Simple and clean IPA. Good use of rye to subtly influence the flavor.

From twelve ounce bottle with no freshness date.
The aroma is of a slightly sour bread with a bit of floral mixed in. The beer pours a dark yellow body with two fingers of off white head. The head lasts a decent while going into a spotty lacing on the glass.The taste is crisp, reminds me a little of Seagrams rye whiskey with a citrus kick. Nice!

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a clear golden amber with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced to a large puddle and small collar with good streaky lacing.
The aroma was kind of mild with a light grain and bread malts, grassy hops and an earthy yeast along with a note of caramel and a slight rye spiciness.
The taste was lightly malty with a hint of a caramel sweetness in the beginning, maturing slightly with a mild hoppiness and a light rye presence right at the end. The flavor was average in duration with a light spicy bitterness lingering for only a short while.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and mildly dry texture and a lively carbonation.
Overall this brew had very little rye flavor and just a light bitterness which pretty much made it an OK brew, but really nothing special...
