Appearance: Golden with a big white head that eventually faded to a healthy amount of lacing.

Smell: Piney hops, a bit floral.

Taste: Moderate bitterness up front, runs up against a sharp, somewhat sweet malt backbone. Tastes like rye, but I couldn’t find any mention of rye being in it. Either way, I like it! Aftertaste is mild hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Moderate thickness and carbonation.

Overall: Solid all-around IPA, the malt backbone sets it apart for me.
