Cleveland Belgian Citra Rye IPA

Look 9/10
Smell 18/20
Taste 37/40
Feel 9/10
Drinkability 17/20

Overall 90/100

Looks and smells like a world class brew. I expected some sourness, it was bit too much. I bet it ages well. It is conditioned too. (The bottle told me to drink one now and one later) luckily, I have another. As my palate adapts and it warms... It becomes increasingly smooth. Citra stands out, Rye takes a backseat. Love the idea, hope to see it again~

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, pear, floral, grass, spicy rye, pepper, clove, light honey, bread, herbal, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, pear, floral, grass, spicy rye, light honey, light pine, pepper, clove, herbal, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, pear, floral, grass, spicy rye, light honey, pepper, herbal, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice compexity and balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with a moderately crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian rye IPA. All around great complexity and balance of bright hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. It was made for Cleveland's 5th annual Beer Week, but lucky for me some bottles made their way down to stores in Columbus. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch frothy off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange peel) hops, along with some spicy rye and Belgian yeast. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some earthy breadiness noticeable. There's also a nice lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and is well carbonated. The soft carbonation helps make this easy to drink. I think it's a good overall brew, glad I got to try it. $10.99 a bottle.
