The advent of the Rye Beer style has finally given me something to look forward to other than a steady diet of AIPAs and even if it comes in a bottle, I will give it a try.

From the bottle: "Double Rye Ale"; "Brewed with 3 varieties of hops and 5 types of malts".

My aggro pour created just better than a finger of dense, tawny head with good retention. Color was a button-bright, beautiful coppery-amber (SRM = > 13, < 17). Nose had a big black pepper and peppermint bite and my mouth was already beginning to water at the prospect of this one! Mouthfeel was silky smooth and the minty pepperiness was like a celebration on my poor, aching tongue. The finish left me literally breathless, like I had been drinking mouthwash, in terms of its intensity. I was minty fresh and so was this beer. The lacing that began to form in the glass was beautiful and sticky and I found myself not worrying about getting it off.

A smoother approach to an RIPA. Up there with Hop Rod Rye & Bittersweet Lenny.

Found the last two bottles in the area for the season...

Pours a deep amber color with a little head and leaves moderate lacing on the glass.

Smells very fruity, maybe apricot, or peach like.

Tastes of rye, with some citrusy, piney hops and some hints of fruit with some hints of caramel and piney hops on the way out. Great use of rye, and overall, quite an exceptional beer.

Moderate body and lighter carbonation, goes down fairly smooth.

Overall, a very solid offering and I will definitely pick some more up either next year, or sooner if I can find it.
