I had this one at the Santa Barbara beer festival. BJ's of Oxnard had set up a booth and offered a few of their brews. Not bad at all!

A - Golden orange, syrupy carbonation with only a little head.
S - HUGE hoppy, grapefruit smell. Wow!
T - Powerful grapefruit juice flavor. Platte cleanser. Almost too much.
M - Fairly encompassing.
D - As strong a hop flavor as it has this is still quite an easy drink to down, and I don't really dig hops overload.

Appearance: This baby is unfiltered and pours a translucent orange...darker on the top and much lighter on the bottom. Capped with a single-finger of off white foam leaving a 90+% trail of lace on my Libby straight-side pint glass.

Aroma: While expecting a nose similar to Hop Rod Rye this taster was (pleasantly) caught off guard by the aroma of light citrusy hops...and lots of them!

Taste: Bright hop flavor consumes the senses during the initial taste, quickly followed by full bodied malt dominated by the rye. This is one of the very first rye beers I've had where I can actually pick up on the flavor of that particular grain...and my immediate response is; "Why don't more brewers do this?"

Mouthfeel: While the hops lend a nice grapefruit-like sweetness, it is perfectly balanced with a quality malt feel. Not too thick and definitely not thin...enhanced with a superb CO² balance

Drinkability: My highest drinkability ranking ever...multiple pints only increase the appreciation of this oh-so-fine beer!
