Pint at lady gregoryís. Dark yellow with red tones. Amber. Huge fluffy head. Heavily carbonated. Not too much aroma with all of the head on top, Iíll revisit this later in the tasting. Sharp clean hop bite. The bitterness is real on this, and I love that. Itís hard to isolate the flavors. Some citrus with lots of pine. Bitter finish. Really no nose throughout which is the only downside I can come up with. Iíll drink this again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper body with a small one finger tight bubbled beige head. The nose is really spicy with the rye, backed up by a hefty citrusy hoppiness and minimal malt. If smells pretty delicious. The flavor is plenty spicy from the rye, big thereís an overly heavy caramel sweetness below it thatís a bit of a turn off for me. Finishes pretty nice, with a bright and bitter hop bite. Medium bodied and fizzy with a lingering finish. Decent stuff, but a little too sweet.

This is alright but not very ryey. Not my favorite rye beer but itís still pretty good. Thatís all there is to say really.

Clear orangish-golden body with thin white head. Some lacing. Massive juicy citrus aromas with melon and fresh grass scents. Tastes of grapefruit, ripe peach, tangerine, and prickly pepper notes. The rye malts perfectly balance the abundant hops producing a mellow smooth finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a nice large white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma and taste is citrus hops, spicy rye, malt, caramel, and wheat. Strong malty backbone balances well with the citrus hops and rye. Tastes more like an IIPA. Medium body, sticky texture, high carbonation. Nice long malty finish. Really good.
