BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Rockford Brewing Company

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.30%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Intended to be a refreshing, thirst quenching beer for summer! Obsession’s flavor is defined by the use of rye malt and a healthy portion of hops. Rye contributes a unique earthy and spicy quality to the base and the exclusive use of Falconer’s Flight 7 C’s hops provide a desirable piney, citrusy character to the flavor and aroma. While this is a lighter bodied beer, dry hopping gives this beer a big hoppy personality!

On tap. Got the dregs of the keg, so this one came out crazy hazy, just the way I like it. Looks like someone cut my beer with a shot of espresso. Smell is skunky dank hops, and that is a compliment. Taste is more of the same, with some wonderful rye spice. Might be the first time I've actually tasted rye in a rye beer. I just wish this was a big beer rather than a session (but I always say that). Overall amazing, will need to try again to make sure I didn't just get the good stuff.
