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.

Look - Out of a bottle, pours a hazy orange with a light head...ok lacing

Smell - Lots of Rye...with good citrus

Taste - Has an orange flavor on the front...slammed with lots of rye....not much aftetaste past the rye

Taste - Creamy,medium body with decent carbonation

Overall - Not a bad beer, especially given the price. I don't normally drink Rye ales but I can taste the hops and it is a nice break up to alot of the IPAs and DIPAs out there.
