Look: Hazy gold-amber with two fingers of white head on pouring. Great retention and lacing
Smell: Subdued nose, slight tropical fruit, some pine
Taste: Tropical fruity sweetness and some citrus/pine, with a slight rye twang that leads into an enjoyable hops bitterness
Feel: Medium body with a smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel

Overall: Although I tend to prefer dryer IPAs, I thought the sweetness in this one was pretty tasteful (not cloying). The rye is fairly subtle and blends well with the overall flavor profile. Delicious, but the ABV packs a punch.

You can definitely smell freshly baked rye bread on the nose, and that darker malt strain is present; however, the hop balance on this was a little too abrasive for me, and undercut a lot of the rye. It winds up tasting like a lot of IPAs, overloading on the hops to mask any definciencies, rather than letting the rye - a subtle flavor - come to the forefront.

Beautiful. Great smell of rye, fruit, and flower. Taste is a great bitter pine, with lasting bitter aftertaste. So good. I would certainly get it again.
