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.
