Ample clarity especially for a a rye beer, something most brewers tell me can be quite messy, sometimes I think they just like working the word "sparge" into conversation. Aroma wasn't 'rye' but tons of fruit bursted hops. Plenty of citrus.

Taste was a very dry and light body, ample fruit and citrus flavors from the hopping, drinks pretty effortlessly. Thought this was superior to the double version of this one. Bitterness kept in check in leiu of flavor.

World class stuff. Best rye ipa in the world.
