Beautiful amber color and a nice light beige head. Strong piney hops smell, very clean. Bitter but not overpowering, a very clean hop forward taste, fades in the middle then a pleasantly bitter after taste returns, just what you'd expect. Mouth feel: Medium carbonation, dries you up nicely. Overall: Excellent Rye Pale Ale.

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.
