Poured from bottle into pint glass. Dark mahoghany color with virtually no head. Nice hoppy aroma; more subtle than I expected.
I've been having a lot of fruity IPAs, like Nugget Nectar, so the upfront bitterness of this brew is a nice change of pace. Surprisingly smooth drinking for such a rye and hops bite. Most brewers wave some rye near the kettle and call it a rye beer, this one brings the rye for a non-sweet bite, which accounts for very little lacing on the glass.
Another solid offering from Bear Repiblic; one that I will seek out again.
