This has a hazy copper color with some streams of bubbles. Not much head and lacing, but that can be forgiven. Very strong rye scent. Very excited to try.

On the tasting end, there's a very nice floral bitter scent with some rye hints underneath. Very good, but a bit disappointed if only because I was expecting more of a rye wallop. It's hoppy with hints of citrus. Very nicely carbonated and refreshing. This is a beautifully balanced ale with tons of flavor coming through.
