It looks like a red, glowing of orange with hints of gold toward the edges, but much darker toward the shadows. A cap of off-white head is a new cap for this beer - also provides new sides to the glass, like thick streamers the whole way down.
A bit of citrus to lead the nose deeper into the glass. Not near as strong as I'd assume.
Like daggers shooting to the back of the mouth, it leads with a big floral, grassy, spicy bomb. That's immediately followed by a strong brewed tea-like grasp on the tongue. Really holds that earthiness - the rye is there, tea drying and bitter to close.
That's a darn good beer - well-balanced hops, this distinctive tea, the spiciness of the rye.
