Just a good beer from Atlas. Easy to drink, clean all the way through. One of the best ales made in the DC region. Deserves another look from this community.

Had a sample of this beer on tap at Meridian Pint on Labor day, the debut for Atlas. The aroma was bright, fresh hops and the flavor was also dominated by hops with a little bite from the rye. Basically a rye IPA, in my opinion. Very drinkable. I would definitely try this one again.

Appearance was dark amber or reddish. Head was pretty solid and lasted a while.
Odor was a little on the lighter side as far as rye maybe. Hops, green and floral mostly.
Taste was good. More balanced than the odor. Rye was noticeable and added a lot to the beer. Hops making up the rest with green and floral(like odor). Some pine/resin as well, but not overdone. Mouth feel was medium bodied and present.
Overall a pretty good rye beer. Definitely worth a repeat.

On cask at Meridian Pint, Washington, DC, March 2014:

The menu noted that whole cone Simcoe hops were added to the cask.

The beer appeared to be a clear red color with a light, foamy, white head that had decent retention and produced some nice lacing.

The beer gave off a slightly pine hop aroma. I was expecting more rye than hop.

After smelling the beer, I expected a more hoppy taste, but did not get it. The beer had a nice, but not overpowering or excessive rye flavor to it. Reminded me more of an ESB or and English Bitter, but it was still enjoyable.

The beer was extremely smooth and easy to drink. I warmed up to the beer the more that I drank it.

Another beer courtesy of the captain of the canship, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy, dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of rye, hops. Taste is of sharp rye, piney hops, a bit of an unusual aftertaste, dry at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a slightly better than average beer.
