Hazy orange color with off-white head. Aroma has some dank hops and spicy malt. Taste starts with sweet orange, spicy malt, finishes with orange rind and a light bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it's a really nice, easy drinking, balanced pale ale.

Canned a week ago.

L — Pours a well-hazed deep orange with a two-finger foamy white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Good retention and some lacing. Love the ‘80s-Miami can design
S — Super dank orange and mango sorbet, citrus zest, rye, and fresh pine needles. The aroma is almost offputting/artificial because of how distinctively sorbet-like it is.
T — Mostly mango, orange, peach, pineapple, bready malts, and black tea. Not getting any rye, which is too bad
F — Restrained hop bitterness, which makes for a degree of wateriness given the ABV. Medium- mouthfeel, medium carb. Very crushable. Somewhat silky when the carbonation is still prevalent
O — Nice offering from Bissell that shines in the appearance and aroma but falls a little on the flavors and mouthfeel. Not really a ‘true’ rye ale, more of a ‘RyePA’. Better without bottom sediment mixed in

Opaque orange-tan with a creamy, bubbly uneven white head leaving arms of lace.

Smell is spicy lemon-lime, pine and rye while taste also really pops with these flavors, adding in white bread and biscuit.

Overall crisp, frothy and semi-dry.
