12oz bottle (BEST BY 10/13/16) emptied into a pint glass is a coke colored body and cream fluffy head which leaves a spotted lacing.
Citrus, rye, and stone fruit aromas dominate.
Flavors include bread malt and maybe slight smoke.
Feel is full, not heavy, and a clean finish.

The description really does a lot of justice to this beer. It's fairly big despite the ABV being in the medium category of 7%. Bitterness is assertive. Tows a really interesting line between dry and creamy, it starts and finishes dry and hoppy with that peppery rye earthy spice. But the middle is a really nice kiss of malt sweetness that gets sandwiched by that astringency. Very interesting and worth sipping at your leisure.

I am sure this is a good beer for some but to me just to bitter. Color, smell and feel was good, but just don't like my beer bitter or taste like coffee

A stellar deep red ale. The rye gives it a real sharp flavor that cuts through the deeper malt, which I find necessary for a good red ale. The hoppiness is largely bitterness, though with some minor aromatics. I was surprised to discover that it included a bit of cane sugar as adjunct because the beer was not over-sweet at all. In sum, an exceptionally balanced beer. My only critique would be that I wanted something a little more punchy with either the rye or the hops.
