Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a cloudy light amber with a nice large foamy head. Smells of piney hops primarily, very inviting. Tastes of earthy and piney hops and a tad of rye, but not too much. Would probably be stronger if fresh, but still very nice bite. Beer has good carbonation and a nice finish. Overall, a very good beer.
