Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a cloudy light amber with a nice large foamy head. Smells of piney hops primarily, very inviting. Tastes of earthy and piney hops and a tad of rye, but not too much. Would probably be stronger if fresh, but still very nice bite. Beer has good carbonation and a nice finish. Overall, a very good beer.

Pours a nice looking rusty orange with a half finger of off-white foam.

Spicy rye, pine, citrus, but rather one-sided in terms of the rye character.

Flavor matches aroma to the T. Subtle citrus, pine, resin are dominated by spicy rye.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, bitter, spicy.

Overall, a lacks complexity, but a nice change of pace.
