Picked up fairly fresh on vacation in Georgia--4 weeks old.
A: Hazy/cloudy with yellow/light gold color and some sediment that settled out by the end. Big head. Lacing stayed on glass and head followed to bottom.
S: Bright, not overpowering
T: First of all--I love rye beers. Good hop bite up front--called a pale ale but could hang in there in the IPA category. Bitter up front with the strong pine notes but well balanced by the rye. Just delicious.
M: Lots of carbonation as Westbrook tends to be--not as "effervescent" as the green can IPA.
O: Loved it. Nice surprise. Reminds me a bit of Alpine Nelson--just a bit.

Poured from can into Goose Island pint glass. Date of review is 7/29/14. Big thanks to thatoneguymike for including it as an extra.
Appearance- Pale orange color with a hazy hue. Dirty white half inch head that slowly reduces and leaves great lacing.
Smell- This weird, but at first I get vanilla ice cream. I do get some type of grain, but I would have no idea it was rye. This is almost void of scent.
Taste- Again, very little going on in this beer. I get very mild hops that leave a pleasant oily residue in my mouth. Pretty boring in the taste department.
Mouthfeel- A bit thinner then I like. Like I said about the hops, it is nice to have those present in this sip.
Overall- Nothing exciting to say the least. Thin, no smell and very little taste. I am glad to have tried it, but I will never seek it out again.
