12oz bottle, pours a bronzish-red color with a thin beige head that settles to a layer of foam atop the ale. Good clarity. A little lacing on the glass. Aromas are great with notes of floral, citric, piny hops, rye malt, and carameley sweetness. Tastes of peppery rye hit the palate up-front followed by strong piny astringency and bitterness from the hops. Notes of pungent grapefruit rind, caramel, aspirin, and peppery spiciness battle in the mouth, while being crisp yet finishing dry. Overall, always a favorite of mine, and one of the best rye beers out there.

$5.49 for a 32oz Growler at Ale Yeah. Poured into a pint glass.

a- a beautiful ruby reddish color and amber orange. a small white head forms that thins out into a ring. lively with lots of bubbles rising to the top.

s- minimal smell of hops and pine, slight bready scent.

t- light hops, a nice bitterness, rye dryness and spice. there's a very, very slight sourness, and it's almost unnoticeable, but it's there. light malt. alcohol is not noticeable at all.

m- crisp, refreshing, with a dry finish. good carbonation, light body. a well balanced beer.

o- great beer for the weather. great for the price. would purchase again.
