Served in a pint glass at Al's.

A: Hazy appearance with a dark golden hue. Slightly translucent.
S: Nice floral aroma with hints of tropical fruit.
T: The rye is strong upfront and fades quickly. It's very nice and not overly bitter.
F: Somewhat dry. The bitterness lingers on the tongue but is not overbearing.
O: This is very nice. Super drinkable and refreshing.

Growler poured into pilsner

Clear golden yellow, constant stream of bubbles, pours a frothy two finger white cap that settles into a generous white , bubbly cap with good lacings.

Aroma of pine and citrus

Rye in the middle of the tongue. Bitter in the back, slight bitter aftertaste

Mouthfeel is smooth, gentle carbonation, light mouthfeel. clean and crisp.

In the area, hear about Pizza boy and bought a couple of growlers. Went for the highest rated beers on BA. I Prefer malts beers. This is a god beer but not the style that I prefer.
