Dark rusty red with a large creamy peach fuzz colored head that lasts forever. Huge carbonation bubbles slowly pop and leave a chunk of lace on the surface of the brew.

LOTS of Amarillo hops with some doughy yeast and a little sour rye smell.

The amarillo hops really complement the sour tones from the rye very well. There's a little heat from alcohol and a spicyness from the rye. Fantastic beer. I wish I could go to the store and pick this one up daily.

Many thanks go out to trbeer for the opportunity to have this delicious libation.

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.
