pour is dark copper, slightly cloudy, denser murky white head. Nose is hopped up, light rye spice and juicy citrus and sticky piney hops. Taste is a bit less fresh hop, spice is mild with a more present malt body, biscuity and chewy, lighter carbonation, soft citrus and sticky pine, very creamy feel, soft body.

Pours a hazy golden/red with a HUGE frothy white head. The head dissipates very slowly. Smells of citrus and tropical fruit with some rye. Taste follows the nose but with a more pronounced rye taste. Also has a bit of a sting from the hops at the end. Mouthfeel is pretty light and crisp. About average or just below average carbonation. Overall, this is pretty good. I wouldn't go around hunting it down, but it was nice to try.
