Hops, tea and spice in the aroma while the appearance is yellow-gold. The taste is the rye up front with the hoppinesss behind it. Not really that different from the retired old APA Left Hand makes although the rye helps with the flavor some.

Dry and rather boring. Nothing special here.

Very watery for an ale; I'm surprised at the amount of hops that can come through such a thin-bodied beer. Even still, it falls flat in my opinion.
