Purchased a solo can from the store in Mass on my way back from Tree House 3-1-14.. Poured in a tulip on 3-2-14

A: Nice, somewhere between copper and rust red, also hazy and non transparent. Giant off white head that quickly over whelms the glass then disappears in under a minute.

N: Sweet with a strong caramel and malt notes along with a slight soapy smell.

T: Lemon grass and soapy (Soapy in a good way) flavors are gone quickly

M: Very light and crisp with medium carbonation

O: A decent rye, seems to missing some balance though. I would probably try it one more time to confirm my review. If it was the same again I would probably pass from then on.

Enjoy-

Somehow never heard of this brewery before, saw some cans at the local store and wanted to try it, and canned, hopefully it's good.

Pours a huge creamy thick 3 finger head that forces me to stop pouring, fades at a med pace but leaves lots of soapy lacing, a hazy auburn tan brown colored beer with a little light getting through.

Nose is lighter, some rye, earthy spicy rye, a bit of a raw yeast like aroma, a bit of a sweet caramely malt, mild toasty malt, into grassy spicy hops, quite earthy spicy hops, just too yeasty.

Taste starts with more copper malts, little caramely and candy like, mild sweet, fluffy candy reddish malts, little toasty. Then some yeasty flavors, a little fresh yeast that's meh, grainy crackery, and a mild coppery tinny like yeast character. More earthy spicy hops, chewy hops, fair to bigger bitterness but not a ton, a mild spicy chewy fruity rye note comes through. Finish is dry and spicy, chewy hops, little yeasty again, mild spicy rye, long spicy hop.

Mouth is med bod, light fluffy carb.

Overall meh, it has some interesting profiles, nice spicy earthy hops, rye is decent, but so yeasty, malt bill is meh, OK beer but nothing too special.

Can > Pint Glass

A - Very cloudy, milky orange color with two fingers of big fluffy off white head, medium lacing.
S - Lots of lemon, some rye and pepper, light grassy tones.
T - Good balance of flavor, really nice citrus notes, very floral tones as well and just the right amount of rye.
M - A little watery, but goes down smooth.
O - One of the better rye beers I've had, definitely sessionable.
