On-tap at the Yard House in Denver, CO. Served in a shaker pint glass.

A: Deep copper with good clarity. A small cream cap is fairly dense and has excellent retention all the way down the glass. Leaves bits of lace.

S: A powerful nose of citrus brings grapefruit and lemon to the forefront. The rye adds a caraway seed like herbal twist to the mix.

T: Quite bitter. Grapefruit and lemon constitute the bitter flavors. The rye adds a slightly sour earthy bite. Toasted bread flavors are along for the ride as well. Finishes with a long lasting citrus bitterness.

M: The medium body is slightly dry.

D: This was the first beer I had after a month long hiatus. I'm really glad I picked it.
