Light brown and amber colors abound, small 1/4" white head on the top, good retention though.

Aroma was hitting those rye notes with a peculiar yeast contribution of fruitiness, then a mild current of hops.

Taste was a rye bomb. Bitter too. Some citrus. This beer borrows from all over the world in terms of its ipa like notes. Hits some complexity you don't see in this style too often. Unique.

Had this alongside a killer burger on vacation in NYC. I'm sure environment/context played a part...late summer evening, tired legs from long walks, that killer burger to sate gnawing hunger...even still, this brew was delightful all its own, offering loads of spicy rye, in concert with resinous hops, to satisfy and delight. Great prickly carbonation that only enhanced the refreshing nature of the brew. Great stuff.

This was a delicious brew. Malty Caramel up front with a nice hop bite on the end. A masterfully crafted beer. Very well rounded, very drinkable, but very complex. Absolutely brilliant.

Gorgeous amber hue with the richest and stickiest head I ever did see. Great spicy and bready aromas with some nice resinous notes as well. Flavor is spot on, like drinking a loaf of rye bread. Toasty hearty grain notes, spicy finish, long lasting bitterness. One of the richest and thickest bodies I've ever experienced, takes away from drinkability a little but an incredible beer none the less.
