Poured from a 12oz bottle into an imperial pint.

Glad that I remembered I hadn't reviewed this yet, I was working through my last bottle from the 12-pack I bought, and realized I was about to do something awful. It pours a beautifully hazy red-copper color with a large head. The aroma is fantastic, there's a great amount of spicy rye balanced with a very unique herbal, yet aggressive hop that works fantastically with the rye. The taste is also fantastic, the rye contributes such a great spiciness and just a touch of sweetness. Those flavors blend perfectly with the very unique hop flavor this beer has - it's hop forward, but not the typical citrus or pine hop you'll find in an IPA. It's a bizarre, yet delicious very strong herbal and earthy hop that blends fantastically with the rye flavors. The mouthfeel is spot-on, and the drinkability is fantastic. It's probably the best rye beer I've had, hands-down. For this beer to be this affordable is just about unfair for the other beers on the shelf. Highly recommended.
