A: Murkey and hazy maroonish red color with copper highlights. A tan colored head that built one finger tall with low retension. As the foam fell it left a dusting on top with some larger bubbles on the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate grapefruit and dank pine hop aroma when first poured, but it disipates quickly giving way to the spicey, earthy rye and malt aroma. As it warmed up even more malt was apperant, toasty and somewhat toffee like.
T: A firm flavorful piney bitterness on the first. Other hop flavors follow through till the end in the way of danker grapefruit and citrus. The spicey rye flavor emphasises the bitterness making it seem more dry and bitter than the aroma would lead. caramel and breadcrust malt flavors also comethrough and clean neutral fermentation.
M: A very dry finish with low/mild carbonation make it very drinkable dispite the BU and ABV level.
O: Complex hop and malt flavors in great synergy with a nice dry finish. I just wish the hop aroma would stick around longer, maybe its fighting with the rye. Great beer either way.

Pours a thick reddish mahogany with solid tan head. Hops, pepper notes from the rye, and sweet malts on the nose. Taste is bittering hops up front and on the sides mingling with the rye giving it that zing of white pepper and an even body. Malt sweetness on the back makes it nicely rounded with bittering hops coming through on the aftertaste. Many love this brew, I personally love rye brews, yet the hops are a bit strong to my liking. Hop heads dream.
