Yields two to three fingers of tan foam, the even surface riddled with bubbles of varying sizes resulting in pockmarks, otherwise retention is above average and the lacing forms extended streaks with excellent stickiness. The haziness is light enough to allow you to see through it decently, coppery orange-brown colored liquid, tiny bubbles move super slowly towards the surface, like watching film at the wrong speed. The rye is omnipresent in the nose yet does not bring cutting bite, more driven by chocolate, cocoa, remarkably clean and gentle for all the heaviness in the nostrils, green grape, red berry to apricot fruit scents, mandarin orange round it out, admirable overall integration. Full-bodied, bottom heavy without getting anchored in place. The carbonation adds more softer fluff than prickle, no scrubbing sensations. Intriguing fruit flavors of honeydew melon and watermelon keep coming to the fore, then grape, apricot, cherry. Mocha and caramel also play a role, overall though not excessively sweet while the texture is not drying either. Inconsistent pepperiness and spice, finishes on a piney note. Very interesting assemblage but the heaviness likely would restrict you to no more than two in a sitting.

L: Dark, copper with sticky, rich, creamy head.

S: Great pine notes, with the rye more evident in the very beginning and the finish.

T: Definitely on the bolder, bitter side. Thick pine flavors, bordering on notes of tar with ever-so-slight tropical notes. Awesome finish, which is what keeps me coming back to this beer. Not only goes it go down smooth, but there are no heavy lingering tastes after it goes down. It starts thick with hops, ends with a definite but gentle pine fragrance cut with peppery rye.

F: Very liquidy, but very smooth. Carbonation does a lot to contribute to the balance of the beer. I could drink this all night, its substantial but not heavy.

O: Heavy hop flavors well-balanced with earthy and peppery rye, carbonation and a thinner texture. I love sipping on this.

Wow! What an IPA. The best thing about this beer is the mouthfeel. It's so silky smooth. Unlike most anything I've had for a well carbonated beer. My new favorite Union beer offered in distribution.
