Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into an English pint glass at slightly warmer than fridge temperature. The beer pours a nice, white head that falls fairly soon to a thin film. Slight lacing. The beer itself is dark amber, showing fine suspended particles and moderate to heavy carbonation. The nose is pungent hops, spice and perhaps apple skin. The flavor is very hops forward, with sour fruit and a tartness that can only come from rye. There's a definite astringency to the finish, and a dryness on the back of the tongue. It presents as a full-bodied beer. Drinking several in a row might be a bit of a challenge, in large part due to the astringency of the finish. Overall, though, a very good beer and different from the norm.
