22oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.

A: Golden in color with orange hues. Mild haze. Bone white head settle eventually but remains as a thin cap. Sparse, spotty lacing.

S: Acute tropical hop aromas come readily to the nose. Lots of fresh pineapple juice. Tangerine and kiwi. Honeydew melon. Perhaps a hint of mint and pine. Rather clean. Grain base is earthy and honeyed.

T: Tropical hops lay down a lot of pineapple juice and earthy pine. Tangerine, passion fruit, melon. Oily and green. Biscuit and honey. Rye owns the palate's attention from the mid-palate on, but stays tame enough. Earthy, spicy, and a bit rough (as is the nature of the grain). Touch of alcohol. Quick, clean finish has the rye tail off abruptly and oily hops flash briefly back to the forefront.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Scrubbing, seltzery carbonation provides crispness. Somewhat creamy. Simple mouthfeel, but it adds to the drinkability.

O: The rye treads a little more lightly in this beer than it does in many others. Playful tropical hops go a long way to temper it. A more easygoing beer, and even quaffable. Love the price point and easy availability too. Perhaps not everything I was expecting, given that this was a Gold medal winner at this year's GABF, but it's a pleasant enough drink.
