I poured a can into a pint glass.

Appearance- Slightly hazy golden color with two fingers worth of foamy head. The heads lingers for a few minutes then slowly fades to a half inch cap and leaves a fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Grapefruit hop aroma with a hint of spiciness.

Taste- Moderate grapefruit and grassy hop bitterness with some rye spiciness and a hint of caramel malt sweetness. It has just enough of a hop presence for flavor but not so much as to be overpowering. The slight spiciness and sweetness add a nice twist.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation. Crisp with a dry finish.

Overall- A good thirst quenching beer. This is one of the better rye beers that I've tried and worth having again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: An impressive pour, with a foamy meringue of a head that squats atop the cloudy goldenstraw colored liquid

Smell: Gently spicy with a hint of lemon

Taste: Opens biscuity, with a citrusy mix of lemon and white grapefruit developing; in the middle, the peppery and spicy tones from the rye take the beer in another direction; a hint of sweetness underneath

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I found myself pleasantly surprised by this beer; the rye was handled deftly and added a nice angle to the other tones

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a nice golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades rather fast leaving a decent leave of foam on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with some hints of a mainly a bready smell along with a bit of a citrus hoppy smell. Some other light peppery rye smalls are there as well with just a hint of pine.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and light rye taste mixed with a tangerine sweetness and some grapefruit upfront. There is a little bit of caramel that is later lost as it is buried by more citrus tangerine and grapefruit hop. All the while the rye builds a bit with it bringing along with it some lighter hop flavors of pine. In the end, with the bittering of the grapefruit hop and the moderateness of the rye flavors, one is left with a somewhat moderately fruity, bready rye, and decently bittered grapefruit hop taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. Both are rather nice for the mix of rye bread flavors as well as the hops and makes for a nice easy drinker.

Overall – A rather easy drinking sweeter and more moderate rye brew. A nice one to try if you get a chance.

Cool looking can. Much better that many beers are now in can. More convenient. That said let's give a whirl. Psst goes the top and I get a citrusy hops smell. Pours into a handy glass to a deep yellow with a very large-and-in-charge off white head. On the taste this brew starts with a great heavy mouthfeel upfront with contrite bitterness of hops that dominates. There is some malt in the background but this brew is primarily scotch like hops with a thick malt base. Not complex, but a very tasty brew for the hophead.
