Appearance is a clear deep amber/red with a nice beige head that leaves some lacing at the top. Head doesn't stay around too long. Smell is the piney SN hop bill with some citrus. Smells a lot like a subdued SN torpedo. Some caramel malt sweetness also in the nose. As the beer warms some resiny hop notes appear. Taste is similar to the nose hop wise: piney, citrusy, with some resin notes. The rye base appears with its nice peppery taste especially in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium-light weight due to the rye (lighter than your average IPA), medium carb, and a bit prickly. Mf also has some mouth coating hop oil.
This is better than the other RyePA I have had (Founders). I can really taste the rye in this which lightens the body and adds nice refreshing pepper taste. Somewhere b/w SN pale ale and torpedo in hoppiness.
