Aroma- Great! A mix of great hops. Floral and resining. The hops are listed on the bottle and I notice the cascade and mix of amarillo and simcoe. The last hops being warrior and centennial. The centennial I don't notice as much and the warrior is for bittering, but these are great hops and bringing them together is a winning combination.
Look- Great golden color- tight bubbles- 'effervescent'.
Taste- Huh. Rye is there, but not as prominent as I imagined. Slightest spicyness to the malt bill. Malt bill is... not prominent at all. Not what I imagined a rye-ish beer would be like. Not what I thought an APA would be like. It's sort of so.... middle of the road- it doesn't commit to anyone thing. It's fine- drinkable- good. Maybe forgettable?
I do like the aroma despite what others said! ;)
I would drink this beer again, but it would be like... "Oh yeah- it's fine."
Pours a clear golden brown color with a huge white fluffy head. Lots of retention on the head. Very effervescent. Thick watery lacing that sheets down the sides of the glass.
The aroma is floral, perfume, slightly earthy with a powder like feel on the nose. Sweet scents tickle the nose on this beer.
The taste is somewhat muted in comparison to the aroma. I detect some bitter hops as well as a perfume hop, grains which is probably the rye showing, with a bit of slightly bitter citrus hops on the finish.
Medium body with medium to higher carbonation. Mouth feel is creamy but finishes with a prickly finish.
Overall this is a very unusual beer for me. The taste and aroma is very unique. The perfume hops in both the aroma and the taste make this beer unique and interesting as I don't think that I have ever had a beer quite like this one. Enjoyable and unique, but not an everyday drinker for me.
