Beer pours ruby color with a good clarity.

The smell is mostly malty with a slight hint of hops

Taste is smooth, with the hops being up front and the rye being in the background

Mouth feel is good

Overall it has a slight hop taste to it but is extremely good. It is worth picking up and I give it an overall B/B+

A: A dark red color with good clarity. Head seems almost over carbonated or thin with bigger bubbles and a thin lacing
S: Odd smell for an ipa i smell malt with a pine backing
T: a bit of a bitterness to it quickly followed by a spicy rye taste that takes over the beer and then a kind of odd bitter after taste
M: Good mouthfeel goes down easy and is refreshing
