Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. DOB 07/23/14.

A: Cloudy, iced tea-colored, brown body. 1 finger of off-white head. Ok retention. Light lacing.

S: Rye spice, brown bread. Fruity hops with notes of orange, lighter grapefruit. Fainter pine. Honey. A bit of bourbon.

T: Spicy rye maltiness opens, intermingled with even-handed hop notes. Nice balance of sweet and bitter. The former gently fades away to a mostly dry finish. Some wood and vanilla flavors. Some lingering grapefruit pulp, light spice in the aftertaste. Alcohol presence is par for the ABV.

M: Moderate carbonation with a very gentle mouthfeel. Medium body. Rather quaffable.

O: Well balanced ale. High drinkability, yet showcases the rye nicely. Tactful hopping. Solid.

Prost!

Beer pours a dark copper color. With mild sediment. Great lacing, smell i get malts, hops, bread. I do detect alcohol one the taste. Over all it's a good beer for 8.1% abv. If you like ryes you will most likely like this one.

Very good, but a little "hot" on the alcohol
