COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of our adventurous friends at Sky Dive Inc. in Hastings, Michigan, we crafted a truly adventurous brew in Sky High Rye. A West Coast-style Pale Ale with rye malt, Sky High Rye boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops. The hops contribute flavor notes of lemons, peaches, and pine needles, combined with the sweet, malty flavors of toffee and bread. Rye adds a pleasant peppery, spicy note like a fresh slice of pumpernickel bread. Very well-rounded and very drinkable, Sky High Rye will surely inspire adventure in all who taste it.
This West Coast-style Pale Ale is brewed with eighty percent English barley malts and twenty percent rye malt. It boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops, contributing notes of lemons, peaches and pine needles and is anchored by the sweet malty flavors of toffee and freshly baked pumpernickel bread.

This poured a cloudy light orange color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma was rye, light bittering and citrus hops. Flavor was a nice blend of malty sweetness, rye and mellow hops, also seemed a bit wheaty and yeasty as well. A nice little surprise to me.

This needs to step up to the plate with a better first swing. Flavor got better as it opened up and the rye came through more. Let this one sit while you drink something else and it can be enjoyable.

Pours red-copper w/ good head retention. Lots of hops aroma (grapefruit?). Warm up front, satisfying medium body. A very well-made beer.

This pours with a tall, 3-dimensional head over a gold body. Sweet malts and light hops make up the aroma. Slightly citrusy. Well balanced, lightly sweet with some hoppy dryness in the finish.

22oz bottle from the Wine and Cheese Shop. Pours a hazy golden orange with a big frothy white head, great lacing. Nice nose of tangerine peel, rye malt and medium hop bitterness. Very citrusy and dry on the finish, good stuff!

Nephilium (1644) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Nice spicy aroma, with a bit of caramel undertones below. Pours a clear pale amber, with a large fluffy white head. Very nice flavor, really drinkable. Just a bit of spice from the rye, and a faint bitter finish from the hops. Quite a tasty anniversary beer, I would like to see this come along as a year round offering.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Big bottle. Pours a light golden with a small white froth. Aroma is very rye oriented, quite spicy a bit of citrus. Very sharp and potent aroma. Really orange forward, sweet yet slightly tart. A bit of spice, no s lot of spice carries the aroma. Spices again are the most forward part of the flavor. They balance he citric sweetness, a verry good beer,soft in the finish, clove, and some allspice. Medium bodied and a soft carbonation. Good mix of drinkable and complexity.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Pours a hazy orange tinted deep golden color with a 1/4 inch dense white head that really lasts. Aroma has a light peppery, peaches come through, some mild rye notes with a grassy hops nose at the end. Flavor has a fantastic rye malt bite, a very smooth grassy/earthy hops note, mild peach sweetness that really works with a mild peppery bite, ends with a light caramel malt note. A modest body with a sugary dense texture and very fine carbonation. Overall a very solid offering by Arcadia.
