Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip.
Pours a clear dark amber color. Lots of bubbles rising to the surface, seems to have a higher amount of carbonation. Solid two finger head, that is a fluffy off white. Good lacing throughout the glass.
Fairly straight forward aroma. Lots of rye and a healthy dash of citrusy and floral hops. Reminds of a less intense, more malt focused Founders reds rye.
Very nice. Right up front is a malty sweetness followed by a moderate amount of rye, with a light spicy character. Then the hops come through, a bitter herbal quality with some bright citrus undertones. I want to know what the experimental hops they used were, because I dig it. Definitely a more malt focused ipa, but I like it. A good hop character that doesn't outshine the malt. Lingering dry bitterness.
Good medium body. A little high on the carbonation. Very drinkable.
A great beer from SN. So glad they replaced Glissade with this. Not as hoppy as the top Rye Beers, but just as good IMO. Glad I invested in a 6 pack. If it was year round I would definitely keep this regularly stocked in my fridge.

Pours a deep copper with a decent foamy off-white head that stays for a bit. Nice lacing. Aroma of pine resin, hay and grainy malt. The rye gives it an earthy taste with a bit of sweet spice. It also balances nicely with the hops. It's bitter, but not overly so. It does give a nice tingle to the tongue. Medium mouth without a lot of carbonation. Definitely a solid beer as you would expect from SN.
