look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear copper color with reddish highlights and a nice, white foamy head that linger, sticking to the sides of the glass.

S: Typical American hop aromas of pine and grapefruit/citrus are present, as well as an underlying spiciness from the rye.

T: The spicy rye flavors are in full force from the beginning to the end of the sip. On top of the rye base you get those same hop flavors of pine and grapefruit initially, but fading to a mild bitterness at the end.

M: The high level of carbonation in this beer definitely adds to the perceived crispness of both the hops and the rye spiciness, but also makes the beer seem somewhat lighter and more drinkable.

O: The hops chosen and the rye character mix well. I'm almost sad that this is a winter seasonal because I'm sure it would be great on an early summer evening after a long day outside.
