Pours very hazy yellow with a few particulates mixed in. Slight citrusy flavors with a hint of spice, rounded out with a muted hoppy kick. Excellent mouthfeel and aftertaste leaving you ready for the next swig. Great beer, definitely up to Westbrook standards!

L: Pours a mildly hazy medium-gold with a nice two-finger head. Very nice head retention and lacing.

S: Strong dry spicy rye malt notes meld with a grassy, citrusy hoppiness.

T: Lots of rye malt with a fairly sweet breadiness. Also lots of grapefruit pith, with a bit of pine and some onion hop character. Spicy semi-malty finish with a good deal of grassy bitterness.

F: Medium body with a fairly lush, creamy mouthfeel.

Thoughts: Pretty decent rye PA; no more, no less.

This is an interesting beer, and I didn't even know that the brewery existed, even though my in-laws live in Mt. Pleasant, just a few miles from Charleston. Pours hazy and golden with nice lace and head. Nose is citrus and medicinal hops, with a touch of spice.

Flavors are a little more muted than I expected. Nice balance, with a little rye and a solid bitter aftertaste. Texture is tight but lets the flavor out. I bet this is very solid in the summer months out of doors.

Try to gently swirl this beer in the can to help eliminate clumps of rye. Very enjoyable.

great surprise! A yeasty, sediment bomb of a rye apa at reasonable price and abv. Try 24.

A - Pours an extremelyhazy light lemony hue with clouds of sediment. Generates a one finger foamy white head that lasts, films, laces, and does all the right things in my tulip named Duvel.

S - smell offers a jammy fruit puree, pear-like, with resinous citrus and rye spice.

T - The taste follows smell, and likewise offers pear nectar like fruit, with a citrus hop, bread crust malts and an peppery rye spice.

F - mouthfeel is again pear nectar, sediment laden, fuller, and with clean peppery, cleasing finish. A nice see saw of sweet and pepper.

Up there with Dales, but completely different in a full bodied hop and sediment laden APA. Try 24. Love this brewer!
