Pours a reddish brown, almost maroon hue with short white head and some lacing. Aroma of spice and strong hops. Scents of wheat and grains and rye. Tastes of bitter citrus hops, pine and grain. Citrus hops are grapefruit and orange peel. Malt flavors are light, but some creaminess comes through bitterness. Subtle notes of grass, ginger, cinnamon, apple. Grains are earthy but with some nut meat. Overall a superbly bitter IPA with much more grain and earthy tones than your average IPA. Also more pine notes and strength in the hops than your average IPA, but what drastically sets this IPA apart from the pack is the grains.
