A - Copper, clear, with a light white head and very extensive lacing.

S - Fruit, primarily grapefruit, and cardamom spice, a hint of grain and malt sweetness.

T - Grapefruit flesh and pith, combined with a subtle caramel malt note, that fades to a spicy bread line, cardamom again like the nose, but also white pepper. The close is more bitter, with a slight note of chalk.

M - Crisp, clean, hiding its high ABV well, and with only a mild drying.

O - Generally, I am always a bit concerned about rye ales, because I am not a huge fan of rye breads, but it is amazing how different the two can be. This suggests a spicy DIPA, more than anything, and it is a tasty and well-balanced one, too.

Slightly opaque orangey apricot colored with an oatmeal colored head that settles slowly. Aroma of bready malt, ripe fruit, piney hops, orange rind, dark bread, and alcohol. A bit of alcoholic solvent vapors which detract. Full mouthfeel, a bit tingly. Decent beer overall, not my fave from ST.
