Brewers Description: Rye Not? has massive floral hop qualities, amplified by notable rye characteristics that blend together perfectly and offer ample citrus and subtle pine fragrances, creating a truly memorable nose. The rye-based theme continues as the distinctive flavors of this grain stand out as the distinguishable malt characteristics. The focus from rye to an intense bitterness shifts quickly and lingers well into the finish, transitioning into a heavy dryness during prolonged tastes.
