Lovely mahogany color with a tan head. Nice appearance.
Smell is of hops and a touch of rye... surprisingly good aroma.
Taste is citrusy with a touch of rye. Very nice palate combination and done well.
Mouthfeel is crisp, clean, and finishes dry. Well done, especially as you can taste and feel the bitterness of the hops but they go away pretty quickly.
Drinkability is oddly enough, excellent for something that starts out as hot as this does. It simply increases the more you drink of this. At first, I wasn't impressed but the more I drank it, the easier it went down. Would recommend this beer but remind them to keep drinking it as it gets better the warmer it gets to a point.
