Amber orange color with a thin head that disappear quickly.
Nice aroma with predominant notes of unused tea bags, oranges, a bit of rye and light wood.
Citrusy flavor with notes of grapefruit, biscuit and toasted malts, resin, pines, tea bags, rye, oranges and lemon. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with perfect carbonation.
It tastes like a citrusy APA with a rye twist, not otherwise, just to spice things up a bit. Though, it increases through out the degustation. Really well crafted beer that is worth trying.

A nice copper hued ale with a sticky white head and good lacing, smells like rye, biscuit, and citrus. Taste is nice, starts off with citrus flavors something between lemon and orange, then as the rye comes on the taste is of apple and then the spicy rye which lingers afterward. Nice beer very solid, if you like rye seek this one out.

If you dig ryes and IPAs this is pretty good stuff. I don't happen to be fond of either, so the score I gave must be taken with a grain of salt.
