Overall, I felt that this was a really good beer and would have given it a higher taste rating; however, the rye was over-powered by the hops, but I didn't find it overly hoppy. The beer was a very nice bright orange color with good head retention. The beer was extremely smooth and easy to drink. I think that it is more IPA than Rye, but nonetheless, still a quality beer.

On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a hazy and super murky blood orange color, with a small head and lots of lacing.

The rye is really apparent here, giving a nice spicy and fruity aroma, with major pineapple tones and grassy hops.

I’m in love with this flavor. The rye gives a really nice spicy undertone to the fruity hop blast, with lots of pineapple and sweet grapefruit, and that nice earthy spice. There’s no malt character, and a little bit of grassy bitterness.

This is juicy and full bodied- it feels bigger than the lower ABV. These guys are always killer at crafting low ABV beers that drink big.

This is awesome. It’s a really unique twist on the NE murk style.

Thin pale ale from bissel. Enjoyed the complexity and different citrus flavors I got from it. Got just a hint of the rye and enjoyed the smells. Very crushable brew. Not in the same league as substance - but then again not much is

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 - 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.
