Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and a moderate effervescence. Head pours a thick finger of frothy ivory foam.

Smell: the glorious aroma wafted to my nose directly the can was opened. Big, fruity notes; citrusy grapefruit and even orange; tropical tangerine and mango; and a bit of resiny pine thrown in for good measure. I can absolutely get behind this.

Taste: piney flavors at first, then developing into grapefruit and tangerine. The rye is kind of hidden under all of the hops, but in general it's an amazing damn beer.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a nice creaminess for the style.

Overall: this is absolutely one of the best beers I've had this year. It really checks all the boxes for hop-forward beers that I like. Westbrook, please start distributing in the northwest!!

Great aromas which are followed nicely with the rye and citrusy character for this hoppier pale ale.

Can't figure a way to improve on this delightfully well-balanced, delicious pale. Cloudy light orangy color with some sediment. Rye and spicy hops in the nose give way to a citrusy hop character with plenty of the rye on the front of the palate. Bitter but not too much with a clean finish. Westbrook is a brewery to watch.

Westbrook, please start distributing in the mid-atlantic!
