Resiny, rye and grassy aroma, with nutty, toasted malt and pine. Flavor is rye, peppery dominant, with a bitter, dry finish. There's an underpinning of citrus, enhancing a toasted malt backbone. A little more bitter than I'd prefer, but the citrus balanced the rye well.

On tap at the Cork & Tap (SC).

Clear medium amber with a decent head that leaves little lacing.

Feel: Medium-light body with near medium carbonation; seems too thin.

Aroma: herbal/floral hops with faint malts.

Flavor: hops, floral and herbal, with well proportioned spicy notes from the rye.

O: a good version of style, but not quite up to New Belgium's standard.
