I drank this beer out of the can during my rating. I have had this beer on many occasions in the past. I prefer it on draft and/or bottled better. I Feel my rating is not giving this beer justice.

Golden orange in color. Fairly clear in appearance. This is pretty good. Nothing special, kinda sweet, tropical fruit and dry rye. Orange. It's drinkable.

I guess expecting a very potent rye flavor in a beer with rye in the name was something I should have tempered given Bluepoint's reputation? Had this on cask, and was expecting a more pronounced rye aroma and bite. Not a bad beer at all, but I've had other beers with rye in the wort which expressed the character of this grain in a much more forward fashion. The aftertaste leaves a pleasant bitterness and earthy spice that hints at rye but I wanted it more front and center.
