I saw their ad on the back of Beer Advocate and was instantly super excited. I can't wait for it to be in my parts. I'm also super excited that it is a new beer to their line and not just a one off bomber.

Anything commercial you've had that it compares to?

Great beer, had some recently.
Peppery and malty in the front then sweet aromatic hops at the finish. Not in your face but balanced and not very bitter, I'd say generally on the sweeter floral hoppy side then the piney. Very smooth and chewy/syrupy mouthfeel. My theory for the peppery malt characteristic, floral hoppyness and syrupy mouthfeel is the rye coming out. Very complex and this may sound strange but a dark flavor profile. Like castle and demon dark, the label artwork is right on.

Can anyone compare it to another rye. I've wanted to try rye in a batch but have no idea how it affects the beer.

Got a case in the fridge right now

Wasn't sure I liked it when I had the first one....never and a Rye Ale before so it caught me off guard.

Now I've had a few and I have to say it's very good.

Just saw it at Hop City in Atlanta today, but was already buying too much other stuff to allow myself to buy it. Next time.
