3.23/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A - Poured from a bomber in a wide flute. Light golden color, though not transparent. Lots of bubbles and a nice inch plus of head.

S - Hops, citrus, mostly a grapefruit smell with a softer note at the end of honey. Smells great.

T - Bitter at first, bitter in the middle, slight rye spice in the middle but very faint. I was expecting more rye to come though in the taste. The hops are great... but I really wanted some rye.

M - Crisp and light with a moderate to high amount of carbonation. The level of carbonation is not good to this beer. Now halfway through the bottle the carbonation is really annoying. It is all I can think about, which is not what I want to be thinking about while drinking a beer.

D - Not that great. The rye never really shone through. The carbonation was too high IMO. However, try it out for yourself.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Cloudy gold with 1-finger medium cream head. No lace and no head retention.

Nose is rye straw and grass. A bit lemony and a touch of apricot. Intriguing.

Flavor brings in a good dose of rye malt and light, creamy apricot underneath. Velvety smooth. Nice dry finish with good resiny, earthy hops. Gets a bit floral, too, and even a tad sweet.

Feel is very smooth and quite creamy. Balances the rich malt content well.

I'd get this again.
