A - Pours a very deep and dark burnt amber and ruby, forms a finger and a half of lightly tan head.
S - Hops, grapefruit and a malty breadyness due in part to the rye addition within this brew.
T - Bitter hops and bready malts. Rye is pushing it, you'd have to really hunt for it. Drinks more like a hop dominant, bitter red ale.
O - A very good IPA, not great, but very good.
V - Bought as a single, unsure of value.
