Pours a deep amber/copper into a pint glass. An inch head fades into a lacing that lingers.
Spicy hop aroma, rye and a bit of caramel. A "grapefruity", citrus bouquet comes out too.
Absolutely wonderful on the nose!
A full hop punch on the palate, spicy and piney, grassy feel. Very smooth, very drinkable, extremely balanced. Rye spiciness in the background, keeping it fresh and tasty!
What a beer! Simply amazing!
Hoppy (70 IBUs!), fresh and wonderful!
Highly recommended!

Beer dude #1 enjoyed the reddish hue described by beer dude #2. It was a very smooth yet hoppy flavor that was pleasing to the palate. Dude #2 dropped a chip in his beer giving it a rich and original flavor to and already enjoyable taste test. Dude #3 says "outstanding flavor."
