A: Pours a somewhat murky bronze-amber color. The tall, amber-colored head has a very thick, frothy, and whipped texture. Retention is very good, and a lot of sticky lace adheres to the glass as the head fades.
S: Some mild caramel in the nose. A little toasty. A big dose of pine resin and citrus peel from the hops. Some fruity, spicy, and lightly alcoholic aromas are also present.
T: Lightly toasted malt flavor up front, with a bit of caramel sweetness. Hop bitterness is firm, with strong pine resin, white grapefruit, and citrus pith flavors. Bready and spicy flavors are also noticeable, as are some fruity esters. A bit of alcohol is detectable in the finish.
M: Rather full-bodied for the style and ABV. Carbonation is somewhat lighter than average, and smooth. Hop dryness grows into the finish, which is not especially clean. Alcohol is present, to a degree.
D: I like hoppy rye ales a lot, and this certainly fits the bill. Call it can cognitive dissonance, but it still feels a bit unusual to pour such an unrestrained ale from a can. A bit of a sipper, and not the most accessible from the style, but it's very nice nonetheless.
Serving type: can
