Pours a beautiful blood red color with a creamy reddish-white head. The aroma is huge. It hits you the second you open the bottle, and never leaves. Citric hops and complex malt tones battle it out to perfection. The taste is hoppy with a strong malt backbone. It's almost like a good IPA, but with rye. The mouthfeel is medium-thick bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, this is an awesome brew. I can not conceive how this beer could be made any better than it already is.
