Slightly cloudy amber complexion with quickly dissipating head, minimal lacing. Aroma is a burst of citric hops up front, with a slightly spicy, earthy background. Palate is a toasted rye malt complimented by the persistent hops. Slightly medicinal and herbal. Light, smooth and oily with an astringent finish. A really very nice brew. My only critique is that the hops could be a touch more balanced between the aroma and the taste. The hop blast up front is not matched in the palate. But this is a really really good beer, a nice uniqueness to it with the rye spice, and well rounded in every respect.
