look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz can dated 6/23/2014, poured into an unlabeled snifter 7/19/2014.

A- Hazy darker yellow body. Very hazy indeed. Comes with a one finger white head, relatively average retention for the style with a fair bit of lacing. Again, this is a very hazy yellow brew, almost opaque but isn't.

S- Juicy grapefruits mixed in with a distinct rye scent, some crackers and bread. Its not complex but quite citrusy, I'm grinning as I'm smelling this beer. Some caramel from the pale malt, but make no mistake, this is quite citrusy and I did not expect this to smell this good.

F- Citrusy grapefruits up front, rye bread in the middle, with a slightly dank resinous hop flavour on the backend that is not particularly bitter. This is quite nice- not complex but somehow well-executed and delivers a nice mix of citrus hoppiness with the rye and pale malts beneath.

M- Medium body, not lacking in body but could use a little more carbonation. Has a dank finish that isn't sticky or resinous or dry, I'm not sure how I'd describe it- it's somewhere in the middle if that makes sense. Not particularly clean/dry, but not particularly sticky/resinous.

O- Westbrook definitely does a great job with the execution of their beers. Just another well-executed brew in their regular lineup. I continue to be impressed by Westbrook's offerings.

07/07/14...fresh!

Hazy golden orange topped with a nice, creamy head, Juicy, zesty citrus and floral aromas turn spicy and meet an oily/dank/funk/berry-like smell that I associate with Nelson Sauvin. Hoppy, resinous flavors upfront: lemon, apricot, mango, and a bit of pine...all spicy and oily. There's an interesting fresh, almost minty quality that leads to a crisp finish. Just a little cracker malts underneath, but the overall focus is on the zesty-spicy-fresh combo of hops and rye. Medium-light and snappy...super easy to drink. Such a shame Westbrook doesn't supply NC with their delicious beverages (yet). This could be a staple in my fridge.

This was a surprise. It drank like a visit form a vaccuum cleaner salesman - indulge me. It rang the bell with it's nose. Rye. A bit spicy but with a surprising bit of sweetness on it Some grapefruit with the earthiness of the peel and the pith. The yellow grapefruit, nice and tart. A tanginess on the nose and you can practically smell the caraway seed in the rye bread. It has a little bit of floral to uplift it and sweeten it a bit but it also has a bit of sweetness from malt. It's deep and subtle but it's like the glint of a gold tooth in that salesman's smile . It's even a little bit breaddy.

The taste is bold. I mean really bold. It's like it just stuck it's foot in the door and leaned in so you could not escape. Soft malt bread with a bit of crust and a bit of sweetness . A bold rye character that is all out front. Rye and more rye. A tangy little bit of spice and some delectable grapefruit. Yellow grapefruit, pith and peel. The carbonation whets your whistle and then as if you had realized that charming and handsome stranger was really a salesman, it fleeces you with a decent and lasting bitter. The bitter resides and then bread comes back up like you did get something out of this. The rye is the drink. It's flavors last throughout and you can't feel cheated. A bit of citric tartness finishes this one dry and with plenty of strong willed personality. Medium mouthfeel and a carbonation that is subtle but strong enough to lend a bit of bite.

Hearty and not for the weak even at only 5.5 %.
