Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass. A dark amber color, with a one inch off-white head. Good lacing and a nice collar atop the glass. On the nose, very hoppy but hidden underneath is a layer of caramel malts and just a bit of bready quality from the rye. Fresh hops, grapefruit, more caramel malts and brown sugar. Such a complex array of flavors, lead the way to a bitter finish. Crisp taste, medium body and carbonation. Just the right balance between rich and smoooth feel. Does a good job of hiding the alcohol @ 8% ABV. An incredibly drinkable beer, with a great balance. If you see this one the shelf, do yourself a favor a pick up a couple!
