look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle. packaged 1/24/13.

A: I would say a slight haze on an otherwise very bright blond body. head is bright white with moderate retention. solid lacing.

S: a light, very herbal hop aroma. a little bit of vanilla. lemons. hibiscus. slightly floral. the aroma certainly grows on me more and more as I continue to drink.

T: chewy and herbal. not a ton of rye or a ton of hops, very similar to the nose. the rye dries things out a bit. finish is very grainy.

M: tingly carb on a light/medium body.

D: good, but I wanted this to be hoppier and more rye focused. without either of those aspects it is a tad middle of the road imo.
