poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass
A: Pours a slightly murky, golden color, with a creamy thin white head. Dissipates slowly, but clings to the glass the whole way.
S: A tropical yet earthy aroma. Not a punch you in the face aroma like many of my favorite IPAs, but very pleasant. Grapefruit and mango up front, with a dank spiciness behind it.
T: A light sweetness right off the bat, but finishes with a spicy bite of the rye. Really quite smooth and subtle. Not overly bitter with hops.
M: Very light carbonation and a surprisingly creamy texture.
O: Really solidly balanced beer. The flavor and aroma are subtle but delicious. Always a favorite of mine.
