Second Self Red Hop Rye
Second Self Red Hop Rye is a Red Rye IPA that comes in at 7.3% ABV. Thanks to Bridgette Rothenberger from Blue Hominy Public Relations for sending a box of Second Self beer to BDR for review.
This pours with a nice ruby red color with a hint of golden orange when held to the light, pleasant off white head lays on top of the beer. Malt forward aroma with a good helping of rye spice and a touch of earthy hops. Sweet flavors of caramel and a dash of spicy rye make up the malt profile, followed by a good amount of pine heavy hop bitterness on the finish.
Well balanced and mighty flavorful, not sure why I hadn’t picked this one up from the store yet?
