4.08/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a copper color with 1" of white head. Great lacing, and pretty good retention. Moderate carbonation is apparent in this beer.
Smell: Smells of bready malts, slight spiciness, and both citrus and piney hops. Good smell, very aromatic.
Taste: Malts are bready and a light spiciness from the rye is apparent and very nice. Adds another dimension to this beer. Hops are both piney and citrusy, and add some bitterness to the finish.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Just under medium bodied, with a moderate amount of fine carbonatioin. Very smooth. I've been meaning to try this beer forever, but just hadn't gotten around to it. Glad I did this time. It's a pretty solid brew that differentiates from your run of the mill IPA.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
