Really enjoyed this beer. Normally I'm put off by Rye and high alcohol content, but this did a quality job of combining the two. The Rye comes through really well and the Zythos hops give a nice cut to the bite of the alcohol. Slight toffee notes and a creamy full mouth feel. This is a great beer to recommend to people looking to try a Rye that won't put them off.

My first brew from Mississippi, another state notch!

Look - Poured into a goblet this pours a hazy deep caramel with some orange hues. It sports an inch sized foamy head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of lacing.

Smell - Bready rich malt with a nice forward resiny hop overlay and a hint of rye.

Taste - Creamy sweet malt is pushed back by rye, which is them almost immediately overpowered by grassy bitter hops. After this it is almost metallic or astringent for a short period of time.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied, chewy, smooth but bitter and more dry than sticky. Not overly boozy but obviously 9% so there's that. Good drinkability.

Overall - The poor rye gets crushed by bitter hops, but as a DIPA this is not surprising. Solid DIPA, would recommend but would not say that this is as rye heavy as it could be.
