What a nice looking beer. Utmost clarity. Gorgeous, honey brown color. Two finger head drops to a thin layer and a large island of bubbles. Good lace; not a solid wall, but caked across the glass.
Ah, the aroma is quite dry. Pine is in no shortage and there are pepperings of rye and orange pith. There is a solid bready malt aroma and a hint of yeast way in the back.
Ooh... This is a good'un. No surprise here, this is just like the nose - pungent, soapy hops. Mostly pine with a slight citrus nip. The rye blends in excellently; subtle upfront and building toward the finish. Quite dry, too.
Medium feel. Smooth, with a softly rolling layer of carbonation. Lingering rye notes with a moderate bitterness, too.
Yeah, this is really good. It has all the choice aspects of SNPA without all the "meh" of Torpedo.
