bottle picked up not hat long ago when i was visiting the FFF area. had a pint of this on tap at the brewpub, but this review is for the bottle i picked up in town. enjoyed from a FFF teku.
a - brew poured a deep murky orange with a thin off white head of tiny bubbles. visible carbonation could be seen rising to the surface of the glass from the bottom. when held to the light, the brew was semi transparent.
s - much more hoppy and tropical citrus than i remembered when i had it on tap at the brew pub. has a nice glazing of rye coming in strong on the nose as well. i remember thinking that this one didn't hold a candle to rye'da lightning when i had it on tap, but this bottle seems to have a really fresh tropical vibe going on.
t - the flavor comes in big with rye leading the way trailed by a really nice citric hop and subtle bittering on the finish.
m - soft and a bit light bodied. doesn't pack much of a punch. a bit watery even.
o - overall, not as wonderful as rye'da lightning, but still worth seeking out. FFF does a really great job with a rye beer.

4.28/5 rDev -0.2%

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Hazy orange. A few bubbles well up and there are a few wisps on top, but otherwise no real head.
Smell - Big tropical fruit and grapefruit hop aroma. A touch of malt sweetness. I don't get any rye.
Taste - Strong grassy hop. Grapefruit. Not the sweet tropical and pale malt flavor I expected. Instead the rye cuts the sugars and delivers a bite with hop bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Bitter and rye finish. Medium carbonation.
Overall - The rye flavor is great. Blends with the bitterness really well.
