On tap at FFF brewpub.
I have had this a few times, but I was slacking on reviews for the past year or so...
Served in a half-pint nonic.
Looks great-- clear, glowing, orange body with a nice effervescent stream of bubbles forming a white head of a fat finger. Decent retention. Sticky fat chunks of lacing left behind.
Smells of spicy rye, touch of earthiness, big old citrusy hops, and a little hint of what I can only describe as melon?! The flavor has a dry malt bill with the spicy rye and earthiness followed by a crisp and clean hop profile. Lots of citrusy grapefruit hops and a strong bitterness. Dry finish with a lingering rye note.
Feels medium-full. Firm body. Good carbonation.
Overall-- solid. Call this an ipa, I'll drink it. Call it a pale ale, I'll drink it. Call it a rye ale, and I'll say it's one of the best rye ales I've ever had. Just delicious.

Review from notes...
Poured a pale golden honey color with 2 fingers of bright white foamy head.
The aroma bursting out of my glass was filled with spicy rye and some really dank hops!
The taste was dominated by some very dank and citrus hops with spicy rye characteristics flying co pilot. Had a slight malt backbone. Very tasty.
Medium bodied with the perfect amount of carbonation. Very drying hop filled finish. Left me with some very hop dragon like breath.
Overall, this beer was fantastic. Dank as hell, fully of spice and easy to drink.

Amazing. Rich, citrus, perfect. I don't have much to say other then perfection. This is another one I had fresh and then 6 months after the fresher the better. This is another one I wouldn't sit on which I am sure that is not an option as they only made it once. So I don't even know if there is any out there. I know this has nothing to do with the beer but a great label as well. Floyd's just keeps killing it.
