3.74/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass, dark amber brownish with a short tan light head that dissipates leaving little lacing, clear

S: spicey pepper from the rye, pine hops

T: nice rye presence without being overpowering, peppery and bready with a crisp hop finish, bitter pine resin at the end

M: thinner with lower carbonation

O: rye is present but not outlandish, balanced well with the hops but neither flavor is powerful

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Dark honey/amber, near white head leaves to ring fast. Some cling lace apparent.

S - Very barny. Gamey. Not in a bad way, but very in your face.

T - Taste is much more subtle. Light malt, nice hops finish. Decent stuff.

M - Fair carb and coat, good balance, slight acidic flavor at end.

D - Very easy to drink.
