Pours a clear deep copper color with a solid one inch khaki head they leaves slight lacing.
Aroma is dominated by lemon and grapefruit, bready, toasted sweet malt, and a fairly significant amount of rye. Cola emerges as it warms, along with pine.
Flavor showcases an underlying rye presence throughout the profile, with grapefruit, citrus pith, mango, and toasted malt adding complexity into the bitter, peppery rye finish.
Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation. The finish is fairly dry.
Overall, a very nice ipa. I'm not the biggest fan of rye beers, but this has enough hop character to entertain my palate.
