(From notes taken at the Hop Cat in Ann Arbor.) Poured from draft into a pint glass, a clear golden red with excellent head and lacing. It has a sweet floral smell. The taste has a ice spicy hoppiness that gives this beer a rich taste and feel. Red ales and rye beers are both favorites and this is a great beer!
