The pour is a hazed amber color with an off-white head. Some definite butter on the nose followed by citrus peel, mild pine, and bread. Additional sweetness of toffee and caramel on the aroma. A halfway decent amount of grapefruit, too. The flavor is also buttery. Decent orange and grapefruit hops, moderate bitterness from some pine notes as well. There is a fair amount of sweetness of caramel and toffee. The beer is really just ruined by the diacetyl.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, rye, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and spicy rye flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that has a better rye presence in the smell versus the taste.

Great change to the IPA. The spicy rye definitely comes through the hops.
Clean taste.
