3.88/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Copper to brown hue. Fluffy tan head sticks around for the whole drink.
Smells of peppery rye, some bitter pine with hints of grapefruit coming through.
Flavor is full rye and pine with some pithy grapefruit poking in. Finishes more spicy pine.
Mouthfeel is full and beautiful. Carbonation stays slightly active.
A damn good rye ale.

Pours a beautiful copper color with a lightly beige head. Aromas and flavors are of spicy rye wheat, grapefruit pith, pine needles and even a hint of woody earthiness. Smooth mouthfeel and a lingering aftertaste of pine and spicy rye. An excellent, excellent rye ale.
