A - Pours a cloudy burnt red color with a cream colored head about a finger high, not much retention but some pretty lacing.
S - Citrusy hops and lots of grapefruit in the nose. Subtle malt presence and noticeable rye.
T - Initial taste is like sour grapefruit... yummy. There's a pretty noticeable hop character throughout, and the rye is there, too. Not overpowering the rest of it, but definitely makes itself known. This beer is just plain delicious.
M - Doesn't know whether to be bubbly or creamy. Sort of in the middle, with a very dry, hoppy finish.
O - I think I may have just found a new mainstay in my beer diet. It's relatively cheap, Michigan-made, and did I mention that it's DELICIOUS? Because that's kind of important.
