Big thanks to mikesgroove for this one!!
Pours a nice coppery/amber color, slight haze, foamy beige head fades quickly into a foamy layer on top of the beer, minimal lacing left behind. Lots of piney hops on the nose of this one, and a candy-like malty sweetness. I was thinking I might not really "get" the rye in this beer (having had precious few rye beers), but it's there in abundance. Really spicy kick, peppery, and nicely balanced with the sweet malt flavor. Medium-bodied, some faint, yet long-lasting lingering bitter flavors. This is excellent, and that ABV makes this very session-worthy. My first Surly beer, very impressive!
