Tough category, as you have everything from heavy-malt beers to full-on rye IPAs coming together under a "rye" umbrella. That's maybe why I didn't think overly highly of this beer. Look is a hazy, cola brown with minimal white head that laces slightly. Smell is very minimal, with a little biscuit, a little grainy rye, and that's about it. Taste is true to the rye, which I appreciate. But it's surprisingly bitter to go along with the rye bite and sourness. Makes for a muddled overall flavor. Feel is fine, kind of medium and well carbonated. Largely un-noteworthy, which pretty much sums things up.

Medium brown color, slightly hazy, but not opaque. Moderate tan head, which leaves some lacing as it dissipates. The smell is piney with rye, spices & caramel. Taste is sharp, with rye, hops, and caramel malts. Bitter and dry at the end. Mouth feel is crisp, thin, with adequate carbonation. Nothing lingers except the piney taste. Overall, its an average beer, but it is true to its description on the can: Hop-Forward Rye ale. The hops & rye are prominent here.
