4.18/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle: standard tall 500mL brown bottle with a 60s throwback label. Not a fan, nor of the 'Supa Fly' name. But hey, deal.

Appearance: pours an incredibly intense and slightly hazy orange-copper in colour with plenty of fine carbonation. A half-finger off-white head settles quickly to a ring with limited lacing.

Aroma: a very intense aroma of pine and citrus hops. Some earth and resin also. A bit more pungent (in a good way) than the average IPA - I am guessing this is the rye. Very nice!

Taste: very refreshing - again a good dose of hop bitterness with some sweet biscuit malts underneath.

Aftertaste: the bitterness becomes a touch sweeter and even more hop-centric on the finish.

Mouth feel: a fairly thick mouth feel - heavier body with a good amount of carbonation to carry plenty of flavour across.

Overall: I'm sitting here drinking this beer on a perfect Queensland summer evening. A full flavoured IPA with plenty of resin, citrus and pine. Well worth the premium.

4.2/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours dark copper with a large head.
Nose shows tropical fruit by the truckload. Lots of pineapple, lychee, green apple, passion fruit. Underneath is a fruit confectionery note and a spicy rye hit.
Aggressively bitter hops as a flavour with spicy, piny and resinous notes. Spicy and toasty rye bready behind with a fair bit of sweet malt too.
Body feels a little too thick, stopping it from being as refreshing.

3.66/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep orange hue with a two finger off white head and clingy lacing around the sides,the smell is very tropical it's pineapples,mangoes,lemon sherbet and a light background of spicy rye,the feel is medium bodied with above moderate carbonation and the first taste I get is pineapple closely followed by mangoes,rockmelons and finished with a tart bitterness and the slightest hint of spice from the rye which is always there but the hop assault really tones down the rye in a good way and vice versa and it works nicely with the rye happy to play the supporting cast it's not out of this world and was expecting a little better but it's super sessionable if cheaper cheers.

500ml brown bottle purchased from Slowbeer by Sarah, given to me for Xmas.

Pours an extremely hazed brownish amber colour, with a decent head of white. Lacing forms in pale streaks, some fine carbonation, but not a lot. Looks decent enough.

Nose is decent. Firm hoppy bitterness, of a fairly generic sort, and some malt basis, thinned out by the rye character, which adds a slight acidity but not much spice. Citrus notes do come through a little bit, and are pleasant enough, but it's still all a bit samey.

Taste is similar. It's pleasant, but light and a little dry. Faint, clear hoppiness, thin body and a touch of grassy character on the back. Finish is quite dry, but the rye does leave a pleasant grain note that sticks around for a while. It's decent enough.

Feel is decent: thin but light, and it maintains the flavours that sit on the back.

Overall, yeah, this is decent. Decent. But Brew Cult do awesome things and this should be awesome. It needs more aroma, and a better integration of the rye on the palate—a bit of extra body might do that. Something. As it is, it has stacks of potential that needs to be realised.

3.75/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a red-tinged amber colour, almost umber in places. Head is quite potent at first but then dissipates quickly. Some clingy lace but quite whispy overall. Decent.

Smells quite resiny and sharp. Some tangy citrus notes and a touch of dry, dusty rye spice. Pineapple rounds it out. Bit sharp, but pleasant.

Taste is more grounded; nice malt notes drive the palate. Slight spicy edge to it with some coppery notes on the edge. Hops are spicy, resinous; could use a little more fresh tang but there's some fruitiness anyway. Earthy and spicy overall. Nice rye IPA character.

Decent body for the ABV but not enough, hops are sharp and pull on the back.

Nice rye IPA, good blend with hops and rye spice.

Excellent beer. Very pungent and fresh-tasting hoppiness, suggested Simcoe to me but I'm unsure of the hop bill. Rye integrates fabulously with the hops, the most integrated Rye IPA I've had by a long way.

Sessionable ABV, what else could one wish for?
