Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A - Pours a clean, transparent deep ruby color with a huge oatmeal head that would probably last until the next milenium if I gave it a chance. I have said it before, but BR knows how to brew a beer with an impressive head. This thing is thick as all hell.
S - Citrisy hops dominate, with the rye playing a subtle, yet unique background role.
T - I have said before that this beer could easily be classified as a double IPA, and I stand by that. Very aggressive hop up front, followed by one of the smoothest malt profiles I have ever had in an IPA. Extraordinarily balanced with just the right combination of roasted grains and bitterness with a slightly sweet combo coming into play.
M - Silk
D - Good. Another great beer from Bear Republic.
