Look - Gold, cloudy, lots of “floaties” most from the end of the pour from the can. Rocky off white head. Nice lacing.
Smell- Juicy, fruity, new world hops in abundance with an earthy malt background.
Taste - Even better than the aroma. What rye may be in here is buried under the hops, which is fine.
Feel- Medium-light. High carbonation.
Overall - Fantastic. Subtle touch with the rye, with a “New England” vibe.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass. Canned August 4th 2017.

Opaque and filled with a large frothy rich off white fist full sized head. Fine soapy retention, but much smaller bubbles, with lots of staying power. Island top merringue with a big cling. Body color is slightly ordinary and kind of dull. Unfiltered muted orange and yellow, but quite clear towards the bottom of the head. A mix of really impressive, and some ordinary making for the good look overall.

Spicy grapefruit hop like nose on the aroma from first whiff. A soft malt body, but with a bit of sharp edge from the rye balancing nicely. Kind of straightforward but solid.

This is a very unexpected and shocking palate from the nose. Big large bodied, almost new age IPA flavors and creamy body. Spiced peach stone fuit and juicy orange quality. An excellent spicy finish that cuts the sweetness down to give the beer some excellent balance. Nice tangy hop bitterness finish, with creamy mouthfeel and a dry punch.

This beer tastes so much larger than it seems. Fantastic.

Huge fan of this Rye Pale Ale. Medium golden color very cloudy with yeast floating after you pour. Grapefruit or kind of tropical taste along w heavy rye, if you are a APA fan you will definitely enjoy. Highly recommend this beer
