750 ml bottle thanks to Daniel. Served this one up in a tulip.

A: Pours up a slightly hazy amber color. Held to the light, more orange comes through, but it still remains somewhat dark. You can see completely though despite the haze and darker color. The pour got me a huge, three fingers of thick, foamy white head. This falls slowly but most of it just sticks on the glass in thick, streaky chunks.

S: The rye hits me right as I open the bottle. Big and spicy rye goodness. Just what I wanted. This is followed by a pretty agressive citrus hop presence. Getting grapefruit peel and meat. The malt is vague and bready at best. Rye and hops dominate.

T: Once again things start with rye and grains. Spicy and earthy goodness. This shifts into the citrus hops. This translates as mostly bitter grapefruit peel. Orange and Grapefruit flavor comes out as well. There is a bit of a medicinal note and a touch of pine coming out from time to time. Things round out with some lightly sweet biscuity malt but rye continues throughout.

M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation. Doesn't finish as dry as I would hope, but still nice. ABV has a slight heat on the back of the throat. Plays on the palate on the spicy and bitter/tangy sides. Aftertaste is a nice rye bread note.

OA: Very nice. The nose was pretty much what I wanted and hoped for. Just really pleasant and beautifully aromatic. That medicinal flavor brings things down a bit and the beer could be a bit dryer, but I am knitpicking. Just a wonderfully tasty beer and I am looking forward to more from Jester King after trying this and Black Metal. Good stuff.

Served In: Tulip
