look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer poured a deep amber that produced an off-white head that was very well retained. Very nice.

The beer gave off a very nice, but very bitter, hoppy aroma. I was expecting more of a grain/rye aroma, but none the less, still good.

The taste, as with the nose, was more hoppy than expected of a Rye Pale Ale. The flavor did have a rye component to it, but I had a hard time getting over the bitter, pine and citrus hops. Still, good flavor to it.

The beer had a heavier feel to it than expected, but it was probably right. The beer had good carbonation and was easy to drink. Overall, a very good beer, perhaps a little heavy on the hops and perhaps why in my book the score suffers a little, but none-the-less, this is one that I will enjoy often.
