Pours a cloudy copper/amber/reddish color with a big thick creamy 2 finger tan head that was full of bigger sized bubbles and faded very slowly, leaving good spotty lacing/rings and a layer on top.

Smells of floral hops, rye, dry grass, grains, some light caramel and earthy notes like dried hay or wheat. There’s a slight fruity sweetness mixed in the nose, but the grains and rye seem to come on the strongest.

The dry hopping noted on the can comes through as the flavor is more hoppy with floral and citrus hops starting this out, mixed with leafy herbal notes, caramel, toasted grains, graham cracker, grapefruit, woody or nutty notes, and then a bitterness mixed with the spicy rye and other hoppy spices like pepper. The aftertaste is like a piece of rye bread dipped in an IPA, and it’s on the dry side with a residual floral hop sweetness. The rye sticks around after the swallow and seems to dry out my mouth.

Mouthfeel is on the smoother side, with a medium body, average carbonation and a slightly bitter finish that trails off and leaves you guessed it, rye. I like this beer and have been drinking it for years. It is always good if you enjoy mixing it up and the flavor of rye, plus the can keeps the hops and rye fresh and mildly spicy. One of the top rye ales made.

From out dated can. No loss as far as I can tell. The appearence, aroma & taste have not suffered. The head was maintained throughout. It was lively on the tongue & there was no telltale "skunking in the brew. Toasted malt is what comes through under the nose & is solidified (or liquified) on the tongue to a very pleasent end. The labeling laudes rye as the star but I beg to differ. The brewers are first rate & withot their deft touch this could never have happened. I'm a traditionalist & this has opened up a new path for me. In the long run the flavor tires the taste buds, so perhaps a smaller can may beneifit the consumer, but don't let that stop you. Chill it, open it & enjoy it.
