Pours a cloudy burnt orange with thin white head which leaves only minor lacing. The nose is one of hops and grain...not surprising, but still attractive. The taste is first of hops following by the rye, but almost in a bready way.
Advertised as a complex ale, but not as complex as the bottle makes it seem. It's a great all around beer but I wish the rye (not the bread) were a bit more pronounced. What is truly great about this beer is you can have it with just about anything and just about anytime.
Since it is one of the few microbrews sold locally, I try to keep a few bottles in the fridge.

On tap, beautiful copper clear color, thin head faded fast, good lacing though. Carbonation just right
Peachy aroma, fruity esters with hops present seemed just right for a local pale ale
Nice mild to medium hop taste. Nothing overwhelming, very balanced
Dry hoppy attack. Nice finish. Easy to drink
Overall I liked it, and I am not a hophead

Pours copper orange with some creamy head and good lacing.
Smells sweet, soapy and floral with some tropical fruit coming through.
Tropical fruit, peach and citrus up front, with some rye spice following close behind. Pretty full body for the style and more sweetness than is typical in an APA. This is my last bottle of the sixer and I've also noted some bitter, metallic off-notes at times. Sort of coppery. But for the most part it's just pleasantly juicy and hoppy, although a bit big in body to have more than one or two of.
