Pours a brilliant golden copper with a frothy cream head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of thin lacing.
Fresh cut grass, resin, pine, muted citrus, and floral hops form the initial aroma, with pine eventually dominating. Reminiscent of a Christmas tree. Rye is almost lost in the hops.
Flavor reveals underpinnings of muted tropical fruit, with mango and papaya meeting resin, pine, and rye mid palate, carrying into a bitter, resiny, rye dominated finish. Malt flavor is slightly sweet, and fairly subdued.
Body is a touch light, with moderate carbonation, an astringent bite, and a fair bit of alcohol warmth.
Good amount of hop flavoring, with rye eventually winning out. A little more bitter than I prefer. And I'm not a big rye fan.
