The beer pours a deep amber and dark copper in color. There is a tall, very thick, foamy head of off-white to very light tan. The aroma is spicy rye and fruity hops. The taste is of toasted bread, caramel, with fruity, tangy hops. It tastes great, but is hard to pull out any individual fruit notes. The beer drinks very smooth and finishes dry. The bitterness is light for an IPA. This is solid and very enjoyable.
