Pours a clear orange-garnet with a 2 finger off-white head, leaving lace clinging to the top of the glass.
With the rye and the citrussy hoppiness, the nose has a massive fruity character- red grapefruit, black raspberry, baked peach, passion fruit- with hits of pine.
Medium bodied palate seems to be weighted a touch more towards IPA than rye- slick upfront with more ruby red grapefruit that lets the rye through on the finish, toasty, drying out with more spice and bread notes- lingering flavors of pepper and grapefruit.
Overall, a really nicely done rye brew. I think I like the styles that lean a little more to the rye side, but this piney SN take is pretty damn good. The peppery spice mingling with the tart red grapefruit on the finish really makes it for me.
