look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance - hazy dirty orange, translucent to a point. A thin flat-white cap barely covers the brew but leaves sticky lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - very sweet and fruity, totally dominated by Amarillo. Pink grapefruit, fresh and juicy.

Taste - while absent during the sniff, the rye is easy to find here. The Amarillos have far better balance and complement instead of getting pushy. The swallow allows for a peek of bitterness and edges forward on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - smooth, moderately carbonated and a low but detectable oiliness. Right on.

Drinkability - two tastes I am really into right now, rye and Amarillo. This beer does them justice. Great balance, flavor, and sessionability.
