4.5/5  rDev +13.6%

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!!

From a can, poured into a pint glass. Canned on date of 7/7/14, so 2 months old.

Hazy yellow body with decent white foamy head, which persisted throughout. Not too much on the nose, but then I'm just getting over a cold. Taste was great, the rye spice taste obvious, but not overwhelming, seems to soften out the pale ale bite a bit. Liking this one, a well balanced beer, whichn has been the case with all the Westbrook beers I've tried.

Well, except the Gose.......:)
