Saranac "Rye IPA"
F.X. Matt Brewing Company - Utica, New York USA
IPA (ABV 6%) (IBU 50)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 2.9/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a clear golden amber with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced to a large puddle and small collar with good streaky lacing.

The aroma was kind of mild with a light grain and bread malts, grassy hops and an earthy yeast along with a note of caramel and a slight rye spiciness.

The taste was lightly malty with a hint of a caramel sweetness in the beginning, maturing slightly with a mild hoppiness and a light rye presence right at the end. The flavor was average in duration with a light spicy bitterness lingering for only a short while.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery and mildly dry texture and a lively carbonation.

Overall this brew had very little rye flavor and just a light bitterness which pretty much made it an OK brew, but really nothing special...
