A: Pours a nice crimson color with about a half finger of off white head. The only fault I'm finding is that there is no lacing.
S: the smell is complex. The first notes I detect are fruit related, and citrusy. However, the rye comes in and adds some spiciness that meshes well with the hops. There is also some caramel in there as well.
T: I don't know quite how to describe it. It changes constantly at first it was malt leaning with a pretty intense sweetness, however as it warms the hops and rye cut down on the sweetness. My only complaint is that in the whole panoply of flavors nothing really meshes completely.
M:l I was shocked to find out that this was an 8% beer. I could have sworn it was 6-6.5 tops. Its fairly heavy bodied with a mild carbonation.
O: Not bad an interesting beer to say the least.
Serving type: on-tap
