Jester King Wytchmaker ....

Tonight I will have a Wytchmaker Farmhouse Rye India Pale Ale from Jester King Craft Brewery.  7% ABV is listed on the 1 pint, 9.4 ounce bottle.

Wytchmaker poured with a fairly thick, off white head.  Beer color is a darker, hazy orange-ish amber; reminds me of butterscotch.  The aroma has some evergreen that seems a little sharper than your usual pine; there is also some citrus, spiciness (the rye?) and maybe a little caramel/brown sugar sweetness.  Medium bodied.  The taste has some rye, citrus, pine, a floral/fruity quality, spice.  Dry finish.  The aftertaste leaves the mouth dry and with a hint of the floral/fruity quality.  The rye and the yeast make this an interesting take on an IPA.
