A: Pours a moderately hazy orange color. The off-white head is tall and moderately dense, with a frothy, foamy texture. Retention is very nice, and a nice splattering of lace sticks to the glass.
S: Some light caramel malt aroma, along with some rye spiciness/graininess. Hop notes feature bright citrus (orange, grapefruit) and floral character. Some lightly fruity notes are also detectable.
T: Faint caramel sweetness and malty, lightly spicy rye breadiness up front. Hop bitterness is very sharp up front, with a lasting bite. Citric hop flavors are prominent, tending toward grapefruit more than orange. Floral flavors are much more noticeable than the nose hinted. A little fruity character lurks in the background.
M: Somewhat full-bodied, with moderate carbonation. The big hop bill lends a lot to the mouthfeel here: initial oiliness quickly turns into a building, robust dryness.
D: A winner from Great Lakes. The citric and floral hops pair well with the rye character. This one drinks like a spicier, maltier Commodore Perry. I'm a fan of the hop-forward seasonal offerings coming from Ohio City lately.
