Gorgeous coloring with reds and light yellow/orange tints. I guess you can call it a radiant mahogany. The head was short but mildly creamy with tons of lacing.
The scent is very strong with "hyped up" hoppiness. Floral pine notes with a hidden sweetness there's some citrusy tones in there.
A touch of rye, a strong hop flavor and some earthy flavors dominate an unbalanced array. The hops are a touch overpowering but then again that's what was advertised. The rye is left begging, wanting to share the spotlight but getting drowned out. The finish is a touch earthy, almost oniony. Overall the taste is of a good quality I just caught myself savoring the malty, grainy rye flavors and wishing the hops didn't overwhelm.
