Best Quote During Tasting
You have to read this beer name in the voice of an angry 50's TV neighbor.
|Aroma - An interesting mix of rye spiciness and big hop citrus are what first greet you. There are pine notes as well but the citrus (grapefruit and sweet peaches) character is what wins out. The malts are very present with the aforementioned rye but also with some pie crust, biscuit and white bread notes.|
|Appearance - The beer is crystal clear with a foam cap that is just off white. The head lingers as you drink the beer and while it's small, it never goes away.|
|Flavor - That rye sure is neat. The rye spice and juicy hops make for a fun combo that work well with each other. They keep each other in balance and while the malts are also fairly sweet, the hop bitterness does it's job to keep it in check. The rye also gives a bit of a sharp flavor (a tang?) that also adds to the complexity without being off-putting.|
|Mouthfeel - The body is medium and the carbonation is medium-medium+. It's a little heavy on the tongue but it also has enough carbonation to make sure that it doesn't linger after each sip.|
|Overall Impression - Yeah, I liked this one. Without the rye, this would have been a good American IPA. With it, this beer becomes something a little more. If you're an IPA kinda person, give it a whirl because while it's different, it's only slightly so and that small deviation from the norm really works well in this one.|
