4.38/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: A deep amber with some light orange highlights. The head is large, creamy, and slightly tan in color--this isn't going anywhere. Thick rings of creamy lace all the way down the glass. A very pretty beer.
S: Bursting with citrus hops--grapefruit and orange. Some faint earthy, grainy malt, too. Really an excellent and rich aroma.
T&M: Some faint initial bready malt followed by a (C)ascade of bitter citrus flavor. Rye comes in later and is prevalent in the finish, giving some spicy bitterness on the back end. Body is slightly on the heavy side of medium, with light, crisp carbonation that adds well to the flavor.
D: Hop Rod Rye is an excellent IPA. The only thing hurting drinkability is the slightly heavier body and the 8% ABV.
Serving type: bottle
