12oz bottle from a Beervana Brewers Case.
A: somewhat agressive pour got a finger width head that fell to a thin cap with a thick ring around the glass. Super clear amber color. Pretty much what I expected, about the color of a rye whiskie.
S: pretty hop foreward nose. American hop varities I am getting herbal citrusy notes. Cascades I think, can't find the rye in there. The hops dominate but aren't overpowering. A little sweetness in there.
T: simmilar to the nose. lots of grassy slightly citrusy hops. Tasteing orange rind. Can't really identify the rye as rye. The hops are a little heavy handed but not bad. Finishes a little bitter, the hops linger for a while on the tongue and throat.
M: a good smooth medium body with enough carbonation to keep it interesting.
O: not bad, refreshing, a little hoppy but I can deal. Almost a rye.P.A. I have 2 bottles left they will go quick.

12oz bottle picked up tonight at the COOP.... Didn't catch the price but probably about $1.70... Poured into my slim tulip... Clear light amber... nice long lasting white head provides good lacing for the entire glass...
Nose is fairly hop forward... citrus with a good backbone of toasty and lesser caramel maltiness... a bit of floral hoppiness with warmth.
Flavor mirrors the nose... I get a little bit of rye as a crispy dry toasted bready note... again plenty of citrus hoppiness... lingers on the palate forever for a lower ABV brew... mouthfeel is lighter side of medium with a good everpresent carbonation.
Pretty solid... Could possibly use a little more rye flavor to help balance out against the bigger hop profile.... but damn tasty and I will certainly buy as long as it is fresh.
