I adore this beer. It pours a lovely pale orange with a pure white head that leaves gorgeous lacing from top to bottom. The rye gives this great body along with a pleasant spiciness that pairs excellently with the smooth bitterness and vivid citrus. It definitely is malt forward, though still balanced, and it has a certain stickiness to it.
