Nope. Big esters + big hops + tangy grain = too much, IMHO. Combine some interesting characteristics, but not all of them in one brew. A rye-weizen could be interesting, as could a wheat PA. But a hefe-rye-weizen-PA sounds a bit too crazy for my taste.

Out of pure curiosity, why the 0.33 oz of columbus at 60 min? That doesn't seem like it would add much bitter over a 15g batch.

And why the 4 lbs of 2-row? Why not all MO?

It looks good, I intend on brewing it but I am still curious.

I would've used all MO, but I only had 20 lbs left.

The hops were added using the hop burst technique. Almost all of the bitterness comes from the big late additions. I read that most brewers recommend adding a small amount of hops at the beginning of the boil when hop bursting. I'm not entirely sure of the reasoning.

that's what I love about high alpha hops that double as aroma hops too

Does this taste anything like Hop Rod Rye? I ask that because the bottle i had of the Hop Rod Rye was horrible. It had this strange sweetness in the aftertaste that i didn't enjoy, just wondering if i had a bad bottle? I usually like Rye beers so might give this one a go.

I'll chill a bottle of Hop Rod down tonight and compare. This beer is lower in alcohol, and I suspect it's milder in rye character, but it is very hop forward.

The comparison:

Hop Rod has a much more pronounced sweet fruit note than my beer. My beer finishes dry and crisp. Hop Rod has a much sweeter, lingering finish. Hop Rod has a deep red hue, where my beer is fairly pale (despite a bit of roasted barley).

Could have been past it's prime, so maybe the Hop aroma & flavor had dissipated. I had some Racer 5 like that once, but after thinking about it, I realized that the place I bought it at didn't have a high turnover on those types of beers.
