Paid $1.79 for a single at Jungle Jim's...

The beer pours a clear amber color, with a large white head, excellent 1/4" head retention and a very nice cascading effect of lacing on the glass, beautiful! The smell gives notice to a fresh and strong amount of hops, other tones of smoky spice, like cumin exist in the smell.

The taste is cleansing to say the least! It starts off creamy from the existing head, delivery is a bit chewy due to its density, moderate notes of the hops and spice give way in the middle, moderate carbonation and an exceptionally clean aftertaste. The mouthfeel and drinkability receive top marks due to the perfect use of the head and lack of taste of alcohol, an incredible session beer, but half a six-pack will suffice.

Final Thought: Hands down, a world-class beer in the USA, and competes for that credibility globally, an impressive brew that is a hit on so many levels, I couldn't be more pleased!

4.14/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 08/13/13 at 50 degrees into regular pint glass
Aroma of pine and rye
Head average (3 cm), creamy, off white, slowly diminishing
Lacing good, multiple rings > 1 cm wide with mostly small bubbles
Body medium amber, clear
Flavor begins spicy with a hint of hop pineness, slowly fades to a slight bitterness; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, slightly oily, carbonation soft.

Evan though this is 8 months old, it is still flavorable, with the rye predominating. The reduced presence of hops could be because of the age of the beer.
