Dark yellow pour with a big white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is piney and citrusy with some good bready notes. Flavor is well hopped with some light citrus and pleasing resin. Toasted grainy character is nice too. Good beer, unassuming.

In short: A relatively smooth blonde rye beer with floral hops. Enjoyable
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed very fresh a few weeks after the beer release
The look: Clear blonde body topped by a medium off-white head with good retention
In long: Nose has nice fresh rye bread, floral hops as well as some tropical fruits that seemed to be hop-induced. Taste is smooth, round and pleasant. This is not a hop bomb (this is far from a Founders Reds Rye) and nor is it a rye malt orgy. This is a smooth beer with a distinctive fresh rye bread and moderate floral and wooden hop presence. Finish is moderate bitter with a nice dryness. Tastes like a bouquet of flowers and a slice of fresh rye bread. Taste-wise the beer is far from intense but it is also quite filling. A nice way to spend 30 minutes. Although scientists have discovered that you lose 30 minutes of your remaining lifespan every time you spend 30 minutes drinking a bomber of beer. Scary.
