Brown bomber bottle.
Clear red/copper in color with a super irregular almost tan head. The froth was long lasting.
Assertive hops take over the nose, bringing out citrus notes like grapefruit, pineapple, and mandarin orange. Also the faintest whiffs of booze and malt.
Surprisingly full bodied, creamy, and well carbonated. Almost grainy. Hops come out to attack, bold and dominating, still along the citrus bent. Halfway through the glass the spiciness from the rye becomes apparent, adding real depth and enjoyment.
Bear Republic makes some damned fine beers, this one being no exception.
