Like some of Bissell's other offerings, not the prettiest pour. Opaque like a juice bomb, but with the color of a piny IPA. The smell and taste combine to make this Rye Beer feel like a more tropical IPA, albeit with a more bitter finish. The feel to me is somewhat unusual—it has that thick NEIPA feel to it, but something about it seems slightly less...homogeneous? Great beer, very underrated in my opinion.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look - Dark rather than bright semi-cloudy IPA

Smell - Very little on the nose, Slight citrus

Taste - Totally middle-of-the-road. Not overly bitter, but not bursting with juice flavor either

Feel - Good solid, creamy New England IPA mouthfeel

Overall - 3.75, I'd be very pleased to find this in the fridge at a cookout, but don't think I would seek it out myself.

Pours a hazy orange color with a very thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both excellent. Big juicy citrus aroma with definite rye and mild piney resin. Big juicy taste. Starts with citrus, with rye and a decent amount of piney resin. Decent bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Very impressive beer.

Love the malted Rye with the Mosaic, Centennial hops combo in play here. Citrusy from the hops, but slightly more malty due to the rye with makes it a slightly darker hue of gold as well. Great rye beer. Hazy, citrusy goodness.

Hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma has some dank hops and spicy malt. Taste starts with sweet orange, spicy malt, finishes with orange rind and a light bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it's a really nice, easy drinking, balanced pale ale.

Canned a week ago.

L — Pours a well-hazed deep orange with a two-finger foamy white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Good retention and some lacing. Love the ‘80s-Miami can design
S — Super dank orange and mango sorbet, citrus zest, rye, and fresh pine needles. The aroma is almost offputting/artificial because of how distinctively sorbet-like it is.
T — Mostly mango, orange, peach, pineapple, bready malts, and black tea. Not getting any rye, which is too bad
F — Restrained hop bitterness, which makes for a degree of wateriness given the ABV. Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb. Very crushable. Somewhat silky when the carbonation is still prevalent
O — Nice offering from Bissell that shines in the appearance and aroma but falls a little on the flavors and mouthfeel. Not really a ‘true’ rye ale, more of a ‘RyePA’. Better without bottom sediment mixed in
