Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
As the Kernville temps dip our spicy rye Winter Ale warms up the taps. It gets its kick from rye but has plenty of hops to balance out the malt.

First time I've seen this bottle. Thanks beer guy at Whole Foods for pulling this one out of the back room.
Pours a deep purple red with a nice pillowy head. The color is almost reminiscent of cough syrup.
Big citrusy hops on the nose. A touch of rye.
The label says winter ale, here it says red, but this is closer to an IPA I think. A red ale in the vein of Hop Head Red from Green Flash, but less medicinal with crisper, cleaner hops, and a little rye to spice it up.
Great carbonation, medium bodied.
Not exactly what I expected but a pleasant surprise. West coast breweries love their hops!
