Orangish-gold body with a very nice white head, good retention. Leaves thick, creamy lacing. Just short of perfect.

Aroma is spicey citrus, zesty. The rye seems to come through once the citrus notes pass.

Flavor follows the aroma perfectly on the hop notes. Citrus, earthiness, peppery. Moderately high bitterness doesn't linger long but is the focus of the finish.

Smooth, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Don't feel the alcohol.

Overall this is a very good DIPA that makes the rye presence known. Won't unseat my favorites in the DIPA category but it is an excellent example of the style. If drinkability was still part of the official style ratings, this would be a 5, and would have little competition. This one basically dissapeared out of my glass.

Aroma pretty straight forward for me-hop flower, pink grapefruit and papaya.

This turns into a hop bomb! Big and bold! Definite caraway, white pepper, burnt caramel, honeyed biscuit and grapefruit pith. Like chewing on a hop head. Beautiful lacing.

Mouthfeel is semi sticky and pleasant hop aftermath.

Another FFF masterpiece. Nothing to prove, but again showing what an exceptional brewery they are.
