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.
