Poured the can into a regular pint glass. Poured a slightly hazy gold color appealing to the eye for sure. Aroma came across as slightly spicy, not as much as i expect from a rye but it was definetely noticeable, light floral and citrus notes are also present. Flavor was hop forward with those floral notes coming back into play, rye became noticeable towards the end, was really looking forward to much more of a rye flavor. Finish is slightly bitter and citrus.
Overall solid beer as a whole, would drink it again, but not what I have come to expect from a rye.

Pours a clear yellowish copper with good carbonation and okay head. Smells mostly of lemon & citrus hops with an underlying spiciness I'm assuming is from the rye. I don't get a lot of straight up rye aroma but I think it adds a little complexity with the hop notes. Tastes is much of the same as the aroma. Lots of citrus hops upfront with some spiciness. Decent amount of bitterness is there, but I get sort of a long pronounced sweet lemony taste. Would prefer a tad more dryness, but then again, that's how I personally like my beers. A great summer beer. Pretty easy drinking and something you would want on a nice warm day. A very solid beer. Would try this one again.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Gets big points just on the head alone. Pours a gigantic head, that settles to an incredible frothy peak. Rich amber color, with good lacing. The nose is complex, good hop kick with a nice rye undertone, with hints of citrus. Nose is suggestive of taste, with good amount of hops and nice bitterness. The rye is certainly there, which I like, and makes its presence known towards the end, a nice lingering coating on the tongue. Mouthfeel is decent, warm and hazy with decent carbonation, slight milkiness. Overall, very good, especially if you're a fan of rye beers.

Poured this Rye Beer from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a hazy golden color , produced a excellent white head, very nice retention and left excellent lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted of citric and piney hops and spicy rye. Medium bodied, there was a nice average amount of spicy rye and a crisp lemon and grapefruit citric flavor. Not over the top, very easy to drink and would make an excellent session beer.

Hazed faded gold color with a tall sticky white head. Lots of spicy rye on the nose with a good dose of dank hops.

Very spicy, on the heavier side of being medium bodied. Creamy body, Rye flavor throughout. Malt barely comes through showcaseing the rye and a spicy herbal hop note. Some citrus notse as well. Oddly a lot of detectable alcohol. I'm not a fan of rye beers but this one actually isn't too bad. Still a little too much rye for me but otherwise pretty decent besides the overy boozey and spicy back end.
