cloudy orange color with a nice sized white head, about a finger upon pouring into the glass. the head lingered as a small white ring on the top of the beer in the glass. It has a light citrus almost orange scent to it. As the amount of beer in the glass lessened the scent turned to more of an orange than at the beginning. Started out with a little bit of a hoppy bitterness that quickly faded. Very light feeling beer, almost as light as a session IPA. This is a light IPA that would be decent for a nice summer day, and at only 6% would be fine. Its a little too light for me and the hoppy kick that is common in most American IPAs is not very pronounced in this. Decent beer to try, but I will not be buying another six pack of it for a little while.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy orangish gold with sediment and floaties; small white head that fades and leaves great retention and decent lacing. The aromas are full of caramel malts and sticky grapefruit. Lots of lemon zest. There are hints of orange peel as well. There's some black pepper. Rye is there giving it a subtle spiciness. The flavors are sharp and crisp. Pretty solid bitterness. There's a solid malt background which really makes the hops pop. Lots of lemon. Lots of grapefruit. Hints of pine. Very earthy. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's extremely crisp. Alcohol goes unnoticed and it's easy to drink.
This is a solid Rye IPA. It's not flashy and there's no gimmicks. It's just straight foraward and well crafted.
