Dark Mahogany color, mildly hazy with a fluffy tan head, that leaves a delicate lace on the side of the glass. Subtle nose, with hints of citrus grapefruit and a light herbal quality from the hops. Slight nuttiness from the rye malt. Just a light caramel hint on the finish. The taste is lively and fresh. I notice the nutty character of the rye immediately. This is followed by mild green apple, with a grapefruit hoppy finish. Nice dry bitterness. The mouth feel is slick, just a little sweet. Good drinkability. Overall, very nice beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Damn, this is just a good beer. It's not the most complex but it's expertly crafted.
Ruby colored with a tall white head. Great retention, tons of lacing, looks fantastic.
Aroma is straight up grapefruit and pine, and lots if it.
Flavor keeps the grapefruit and pine but adds in a whole bunch of spice from the rye. Awesome combo.
Medium bodied and oh-so-easy to drink. Would pair great with some spicy food but big enough to standout on its own. Highly recommended.
