definitely a good and easy drinking rye beer! Not too hoppy and not too malty, great balance and a nice medium feel! well done.

Great easy drinking beer. More hops needed. More carbonation needed.

The appearance has a dark red color that gave a one finger white head that settled to a half finger close to a film while releasing a substantial amount of beautiful speckled spider web lacing. The body was too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell had some citrus, rye, malty mutedness with just a tad bit of hops in the background. The taste was bittersweet with a great combination of the hops and rye combining very nicely with the malts and citrus. On the palate, it sat about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. I would say this was a very drinkable beer for the ABV, quite impressive. Overall, pretty nice rye beer.

A - Dark copper body, some haziness, light tan head, wispy and a touch of lacing.

S - Caramel malt, pine, and a bit of spice and alcohol warmth.

T - Opens with lemon, moves quickly to tea and mint, a snap of peppery spiciness, and a sharp dry bitter close.

M - A bit sticky in the open, bitter dry close. Mildly taxing over time.

O - A refreshing brew and quite nice overall, with an excellent mix of spice, fruit, and sharp bitterness.

The beer has a gorgeous look, with its ruby red slightly brown color, almost as if it was heavily aged in sherry casks. Very aromatic but not fruity like an IPA. It drinks very smooth, with a dry, slightly bitter finish. This is somewhere between a sipper and a gulper. I would definitely come back to this again.

12 oz bottle with a 22 April 2017 BB date stamp.
Excellent clarity in a deep red-brown body. Good off-white head with decent retention.
Aroma: lots of toffee and faint rye. Alcohol esters.
Flavor: moderately strong and bitter; plenty of spicy rye flavors.
Feel: smooth, medium+ body.

On tap at Jealous Monk in CT. Nice dark orange color. Reasonable head. Great rye bite. Had with my sausage meal, great compliment. Love a good rye beer and this is one of the better I have had.
