Purchased from Whole Foods Tampa for $1.99

App- A semi orange with some highlighted yellow and gold look. A small impish 1/2 finger head presented and faded quickly. Not much cling or lace either.

Smell- A good smelling pale ale with good amounts of hop bitter, rye was there and even some citrus notes presented itself.

Taste- I was a little let down with this one. I wasn't sure about the Rye but if it was only 10% I get why it was so light but more pale with some citrus and some malt behind it. A small tad bit of bitter but note much.

Mouth- A small medium body with a medium carbonation level. A nice bit of malty rye. A little underwhelming but still okay.

Drink- A nice beer, but with the Rye on the label I expected so much more. It's become a favorite style for me.
