Almost redish in color. Half finger off white head. Smell is slight hop and all malt not sour id say but robust malt. Medium to low carbonation. Hoppy in the back so slightly and huge biting malt. Not hop bitter, but a bitter malt I assume is the rye. Like I said robust huge malt flavor but clean. My first rye and will try others.

Pour a hazey golden copper in color, topped with a pale-tan head and a with some good lacing.

A lighter hop note is obscured by the punchy rye character, which is all over the nose. Very light yeast character.

Brisk, sweet, and full of character on the first sip. Strong! Tastes much like a barleywine-stye ale to me, just one with a ton of rye in it. Lighter vegetal notes (fennel) and broader dark fruit in this one; Jammy, plum and strawberry.

A good deal of dryness despite the really firm malt character, here, with a very solid hop backbone (particularly bitterness) to nicely balance this one.

Pretty good drinkability for such a gutsy, strong beer.

Altogether this is a solid sippin' beer, and if you like rye malt, it's a must-try.

Pours a clear amber producing 3 fingers of somewhat lasting, beige, foamy head that leaves motes & streaks of lacing. Aroma is dark malt, a little brown sugar, rye spice & a slightly sour note in a fruity/juicy, leafy floral, pineapple, light citrus & pine background. Taste is malty, lightly boozy, brown sugary sweet with heavy rye spice, tropical fruit, orange/tangerine citrus hints. Finish is caramel/honey sweetness & rye spice that becomes a hop/alcohol bitterness & dryness in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied, medium carbonation, a little syrupy but creamy, lightly prickly & lively with rye spice.

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