This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown color with a white rocky foamy head. Took forever to dissipate. Mild stringy lace. The aroma had a sweet floral to herbal earthy malty flow to the hops which were slightly citrusy, woody and piney. The flavor yielded to the sweet side embracing all of the same tones of the aroma. Some caramel malts meld fine into the beer. Aftertaste was the blend of the malts to the floral/earthy portions. Finish was long and malty. The palate was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Overall, decent enough beer as is, but I was hoping for more rye, or some rye.

The rye does well, but the malt backbone is a bit to much caramel and I feel like it takes away from the hop taste profile in the beer

A: A deep red amber in color, slightly hazy. Tan head on top.

S: Lovely hop aroma. Citrus peel and tropical fruit dominate.

T: Grapefruit peel and citrus. Not as much of the tropical fruit as in the aroma. Slight spice note in the finish.

M: Medium in body, with fairly active carbonation.

O: Overall good, but the taste doesn't live up to the aroma.
