@ Steel String

I'm not sure if this is an ever-changing recipe or if they're still just tweaking things, but this particular batch was brewed with Chinook which compliments the spicy qualities of the rye nicely.

Hazy bronze under a small, creamy white head. A bubbly ring retains on the surface. Moderate spicy, dank, pungent aromas of earthy pine, slight caramelized onion, caramel, and toast. Tastes a little brighter with more floral hop notes, peppery spice, pine, and grapefruit zest over subtle biscuit malt. Creamy to start, but light and crisp with a long lasting dryness. I enjoyed this a lot. Steel String keeps on improving in my opinion. A satisfyingly spicy, oily session beer.
