Spicy and grainy American Rye dominates in the aroma and flavor with citrus hops and sweet malts balancing it in the background. Spice, bitterness and a sweet malt lingers on the tongue in the aftertaste. It's a session beer I can drink a lot of.
I don't use rice hulls. It does get a little sticky. The 6-row helps.
The late hops provide plenty of bitterness and a lot of flavor. I really like the balance of this beer.
Everything is better with a beer.
