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.

Going on a long-lost memory here, but I hope FFF releases this beer again. From its description, and when it came out, I suspect this was a Simcoe and/or rye variant of Zombie Dust. One of my early "wow" beer experiences.

Review from notes...

Poured a pale golden honey color with 2 fingers of bright white foamy head.

The aroma bursting out of my glass was filled with spicy rye and some really dank hops!

The taste was dominated by some very dank and citrus hops with spicy rye characteristics flying co pilot. Had a slight malt backbone. Very tasty.

Medium bodied with the perfect amount of carbonation. Very drying hop filled finish. Left me with some very hop dragon like breath.

Overall, this beer was fantastic. Dank as hell, fully of spice and easy to drink.
