A: Very nice orange amber color with a very slight opaqueness to it. Pours two fingers of foamy head that dissipate to a very thin veil all around the top.
S: Alot of very nice fruity maltyness here. Catching some grapefruit, cherry and apple and alot of piney floral hoppyness. Very nice
T: Very interesting flavors here. Apple and pear sweetness up front leading into the rye flavor really plays tricks on you. Then a nice hoppyness with some pine flavor in there. Its an excellent balance that moves from sweet to spicy to hoppy piney bitterness. Really excites the palette of this beer lover!
M: Minimal carbonation with an almost creamy feel that lets the bitterness and pine flavors linger in the after taste. Very well done.
O: Very good brew. Everything balances well and there are some truly unique flavors that all go very well together. Would def purchase another six pack of this and would like to try it on tap to compare.
