This has a hazy copper color with some streams of bubbles. Not much head and lacing, but that can be forgiven. Very strong rye scent. Very excited to try.

On the tasting end, there's a very nice floral bitter scent with some rye hints underneath. Very good, but a bit disappointed if only because I was expecting more of a rye wallop. It's hoppy with hints of citrus. Very nicely carbonated and refreshing. This is a beautifully balanced ale with tons of flavor coming through.

A: A hazy copper color with a thin line of off-white bubbles on top.

S: Floral hop aroma with a nice dose of rye and toasted malt.

T: Initial taste is grassy bitter hop and this mellows out into a sweeter toasted malt and rye flavor. The lingering hop bitterness mixes well with the rye.

M: Medium body and good carbonation.

O: It's a good beer, but I was hoping for a little more rye flavor. I think the intense hop takes away some of that. Still good stuff though.
