The beer pours a reddish color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of rye and pine, two qualities that I think go quite well together. The flavor is more of the same, with a lot of rye and pine and not too much else. Low to medium bitterness, with a medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Fairly straightforward, but also very good.

Appears slightly hazed deep copper amber with a large off white cream head leaves even lacing around. Aroma has sweet roasted caramel aspects with flowing herbal and mild citrus notes along with a spicy rye kick. Flavor is great I have no clue what Thai palm sugar tastes like but this beer is so unique with the combination of spicy rye, herbal and citrus hop tones, and caramel roastiness. Strong flow of hop oils carrying the bitterness to the edge. Mouthfeel is sticky with hop resins evenly carbonated very smooth, glides going down medium bodied. Drinkability is nice an all around very complex drinking beer that I hope to see again soon.

22 oz. bomber, marked "Ale brewed with Rye & Palm Sugar. 17.0 Plato, 68 IBU, 7.0% ABV."

Bold red-chestnut in color with a foamy, thick beige head. Aroma of hops, rye and some sweetness. Taste is nicely bitter - with a lot of floral, citrusy hops balanced by the palm sugar and a subtle Rye element. Dry and crisp, with some malty softness in the finish. Quite nice to sip.

L -- Dark amber, almost ruby color with a foamy, 2 finger off-white head. Looks very enticing. Head retains for a long while with good lacing.

S -- I don't really smell much at first, to be honest. Later on, a bit of citrus comes out, but kind of lacking in the aroma department.

T -- Earthy spiciness (from the rye, according to Google), slight pine flavor, sweet toffee maltiness. Citrus came out strong with warmer temperatures.

F -- Crisp and creamy. Leaves an oily film behind.

O -- I really enjoyed this beer. The hop profile was nice, and having had a number of hop-forward beers recently, I was able to separate it from the rye flavors and enjoy what rye has to offer.

A- Medium brown with red hues. Transparent. Head is 1.5 inches and lacing is super thick all the way down the glass.

S- Malty and a little bourbon like. Rich and warming. Sweet and roasty with hoppy aromas. Very well blended.

T- Very sweet and malty and a semibitter hop. Finishes suprisingly dry. Espcially complex due to the dryness to sweetness range.

M- Medium to thick and low to medium carbonation.

D- Rich and thick for the style. Not very sessionable, but damn good for a stand alone beer.

Picked up by a friend on a road trip.

Pours a deep mahogany color with good carbonation.

Smell has just a mild rye smell to it. Considering I'm not a fan of rye bread, I'm beginning to question why I'm drinking this beer.

Seems to be a well-crafted beer. The style isn't for me but I can still appreciate the quality.
