Dark copper pour with nice caramel-colored head and great lacing. Big fruity nose with hints of caramel and pine. The rye is there in the nose, but somewhat subdued. It definitely emerges more in the taste. Great spicy, bitter, hoppy bite that's very complex with hints of orange, grapefruit, and of course rye. This is definitely the best interpretation of a rye PA that I've had. The alcohol is well hidden which makes it highly drinkable. Thick, chewy, bitter, but smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A classic beer from one of my favorite breweries.
