22 oz bomber, opened and greeted with a big whiff of hops out of the bottle. Pours an orange-brown and sits a dark reddish-brown in the glass with a nice half finger creamy white head on top.
Aroma is big on hops, but there is a nice bit of rye that break through. Light grassiness and caramel beneath.
Taste is big on bitter, doesn't quite hit you at first but really comes out strong fairly fast. Nice citrus flavors, orange and grapefruit, as well as a bit of rye flavor as well, not as much as you might expect though. Finish is bitter, still hitting hard with the citrus notes and leaves you with even more hops well after swallowing.
Mouthfeel is smooth and rich, medium-full body, with wonderful carbonation. Another beer to quench the hop cravings, one will definately do the trick.
