COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique blend of malts including Pale, Pilsner, and a healthy dose of rye, this hoppy rye ale is finished off with an aromatic kick of Amarillo and Centennial hops.

Tap at Rattle N Hum. Pale amber gold pour. The nose is a bit hoppy with a little bit of orange peel and a whiff of light citrus as well. Fruity and a bit chewy but the rye malt is very well-hidden. Softly hoppy on the aroma but the bitterness is actually quite assertive. As it warms up there is a little bit of diacetyl – which I don’t recall ever seeing in a Bear Republic beer. A touch of light spice on the finish. It’s okay – but it’s not great.

Draft @ Blind Tiger. Light hazy orange pour with some white head. Citrus hop aroma with some light rye malt background. Flavor is citrus hops some pine and light rye, not too much.

hammerhead007 (1) - UNITED STATES VIRGIN ISLANDS - JUN 21, 2010 does not count
lot of floaters, not what I expected from this beer and it akes away from this beer considerable as far as I am concerned. It has a nice flavor and taste but I cant get past the floaters and who says these beers have to be cloudy, I would prefer some filtration When I brew this beer it will filter it no matter the style says.

Sammy (8529) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at Cole’s. A nice summer beer. Ginger ale appearance, however a lovely white head and lots of lace. Some rye edge,complexity, above average mouthfeel despite assertive carbonation. Good hop bitterness, very drinkable.

Tap @ Cole’s. Gold, thin head. Nose is malt, caramel, a little rye, pine. Flavor is piney/lemony hop, nice malt for a west coast pale ale w. peppery rye.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Tap at BT> Pours a clean mostly clear deep gold with a nice white head. Aroma is really fresh pungent citrus hops, light earthy tones and flowery- also good spicy earthy, almsot woodsy rye bread notes. Flavor is even more rye especially as it warms a bit, light woody, grassy but still lots of good orange and citrus hoppiness, crisp and floral in the end. Very nice.
