12oz can (courtesy of neighbor Bob) poured into a Shaker at 43°. Color is a bright gold with light carbonation and a thin tight white head. Aroma is strong pine sap and grape fruit resin. It has a lighter medium body with a light mouth feel. Flavor is rye, corn and grapefruit zest. After taste is dry with the rye giving a nice pepper taste. Overall its a nice easy drinking brew, would be good to have around on a hot summer day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can from Whole Foods Wine and Spirits in Boulder, 11/24/15. It pours a mostly clear golden color with a thin white head that leave a coat of spotty lacework. The aroma is citrus / grapefruit hops, some rye bread spice, and a bit of pine as well. Nice hoppy flavor profile with a good rye malt backbone. Clean and decently bitter, not over the top, but well balanced and very enjoyable. Light-medium bodied, crisp and dryish on the close.
