3.6/5  rDev -15.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pour cloudy yellow orange with a small puffed up white head. Slight lacing down the glass.

Aroma is sharp rye notes, citrus and pine. A bit of grapefruit zest and bread in the background.

Big grapefruit rind and other citrus flavor up front. A little earthy and bready before finishing with a rye-resin 1-2 punch.

Medium body and carbonation. Finishes pretty bitter.

Not too bad, but the flavors were a bit muddled. I enjoyed Rye da Lightning more. The extra hops seemed to overwhelm the rye to provide more flavor harshness and less of the wonderful citrus explosion with a hint of rye of its little brother.

3.68/5  rDev -14%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

a: cloudy, golden copper. frothy white head

s: citrusy hops (orange/grapefruit/pineapple). Detecting some of the rye spiciness too.

t: Taste follows the nose but the rye seems to more pronounced. Initial burst of citrusy hops. Spicy rye really picks up mid taste and stays through the end.

m: medium body. Clean and crisp

o: This is ok but I much prefer Rye'd da Lightning. The rye was better nuanced in the latter. Good to try once but I will not seek out again.
