Brewed with pale, Munich, caramel, and rye crystal malts, Amarillo and Ahtanum hops. My pint was a murky, reddish brown and was presented with a thin beige cap. There was some spotty lacing. The aroma was quite fruity, some caramel and malt, citrus. Moderate bitterness throughout, fruity pineapple and citrus. The hop flavour was a little weird at first, but it mellowed somewhat as the beer warmed. Medium bodied, decent texture. Overall this beer was okay, but the hops didn't work for me and they overpowered any rye character that may have been present.
