on tap at bagger dave's just outside of grand rapids, MI. paired with their blue cheese burger

a: clear ruby-copper with some kind of bone-coloured head

s: citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit) with slight spicy rye characteristics

t: orange, grapefruit, and pine up front. a strong-but-not-harsh drying bitterness kicks in mid-palate, along with the rye flavours

m: medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, oily and sticky

o: the bitterness isn't for beginners, but get past that and you have a mouth-coating, delicious, and flavourful rye IPA
