Pours a nice deep copper color with an off-white head and plenty of lacing. The aroma has some citrusy hops along with some rye spice. The flavor is mostly citrus up front with the rye spice making up the aftertaste with a slight sweetness.

Pours copper with white head. Aroma is citrus hops and caramel malts. Taste is citrus hops with a sweet malt backbone to balance it. Didn’t get much rye but it didn’t detract from the beer. Very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2/4/12 notes: Bottle. Pours clear, tarnished orange with nice white head. Beautiful. Aroma is pungent rye and sourdough, floral hops, cracked pepper. Flavor smacks of hops initially, with pine following along with perception of a taught, dry body. Well integrated, flavor-forward with a hop/rye-tea clarity of flavor. Very good.
