Bottle to pilsner glass. Clear Yellow. Big white head. Aroma is mostly grassy, some hoppyness and citrus. Taste: rye is forthright, some acetone in the finish. Feel is fairly smooth,medium carbonation. The little bite in the finish is smoothed out by a creaminess, but it almost tastes soapy at that point. Not too shabby. Rocky......WIN!!!!"

DATE: May 27, 2016... OCCASION:having negotiated the long week, I welcome the Memorial Day weekend with The Fellowship of the Ring, the Cavs' hopeful ECF-clinching win, and whatever else comes our way... APPEARANCE: dark, dense and approaching a tiger's orange-amber body... white head forms a two-finger cream that settles to coral striping and a strong surf on the surface... high-arching lace forms a distinct cloud line... effervescence is slow and steady but uneventful... AROMA: a nice bourbon and pepper draw early, after which stone fruit, melon, mango and some astringent esters... PALATE: full-bodied, intense and active on the teeth, with a vibrant, lingering aftertaste... chunky and chewy and suckable, if possible... a meal in itself... TASTE: a strong, spicy bite--pepper, allspice and warm rye bread... apple and watermelon late... a bevy of characteristics compete for the tastebuds... OVERALL: what a powerful punch of hops and rye--the rye bread malts especially develop a strong profile that supports east and west coast hop tendencies... another victory for Great Lakes Brewing...

Light orange and substantial yellow make up the appearance on this one. Great Lakes usually are top notch appearance wise. Aroma didn't punch you in the face with rye. Simcoe hops. You get some grapefruit and other orangey citrus.

Taste was bitter, didn't crush with the hop flavors. Didn't really offer much in the way of what I look for in a rye or a hoppy ipa. It was good. Just not Great Lakes thing. Erie Monster was a disappointment. Hoppy beers aren't their thing, and there was nothing wrong here.
