Result & Notes:
This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite and most local commercial breweries (Shmaltz) who produce a killer rye IIPA. My goal was not to clone it, but instead to capture its essence while backing off a bit on the gravity. I'm really happy with the result. The big rye addition comes through as you would expect. However it's the caramunich that makes the brew, providing plenty of malt presence to balance out the hop bitterness. The rye also gives this thing a huge amount of body.

Homebrewing: because a bucket list should consist of actual buckets.
