12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip

A- Deep amber, red-orange hues. Tan head is one finger, and speckles of lacing line the glass.

S- Piney hop aroma. Faint citrus. Malt is sweet. Caramel. Rye spice.

T- There are a lot of flavors that come out in this one. First is a bite of the spicy, crisp rye, then some piney hops, earthy. The finishing taste is a little sweet, caramel and fruit.

M- Really crisp, and the body isn't so full, like most double IPA's. Smooth and a bit chewy, but goes down quick. The finish has a sweetness, followed by a long dry and bitter finale.

O- This is very powerful and in-your-face. All those hops, all that rye, and enough malt to keep you from losing your head. Very big beer.
