3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small growler fill from the brewpub on day 3 of business. This one has a little more carbonation on initial pour then the imperial version. Clear and somewhat light amber with a biege head that fades to a nice rim around the glass. Get some rye with light resin and a bit of lemon zest, bittersweet malt, bit of caramel. Moderate to light body, mild but pleasant carbonation, slight bitterness and dryness with some malt and light resin on the finish. So this has promise but it seems like it lacks a bit of depth in terms of flavour and complexity that leaves me feeling slightly cheated and wanting more from the beer. But hey you gota start somewhere so that is ok.

Thanks cfrancis food this one. Pours a hazy dull orange. Beautiful aromas and flavors of bright citrus. Nice spicy rye malt bill. This is one of the best rye ales I’ve had.

On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. Last beer of the night. A cloudy orange peach fuzz looking pour, maybe cask? Earthy spicy pine aroma, tons of hops. The taste is fruity, peachy, rye and bitter hops, dead smooth mouthfeel - definitely cask. I love the end of fest day party vibe with beyond the pale’s dj kicking ass plus fire hoola-hooping - kickass.

Had this one to start the night at the Hintonburg Public House with a group of friends - a strong, but easy to drink beer that is guaranteed to lead to a great night! Hoppy, but smooth, with light carbonation. Really enjoyed the citrus notes, both in aroma and taste.

Growler: Poured a dirty amber color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops with light peppery notes of rye is quite nice. Taste is also dominated by spicy rye notes with some citrusy hops and some dry caramel malt notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very enjoyable Rye IPA with maybe just a tad too much residual sugar notes.

Hazy yellow color a little bit of foam. Aromas of fruity, aromatic and resinous hops, malted rye. Flavors announced by the aromas. We feel a good rye roundness in the mouth. Jaune trouble avec un peu de mousse. Arômes de houblons fruités, aromatiques et résineux, malt de seigle. Saveurs annoncée par les arômes. On sent une belle rondeur du seigle en bouche.

On tap at Sir John A. (Ottawa, ON). Cloudy amber body with a thin white creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty and citrusy hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries mango, melon, grapefruit, and malty notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Enjoyable.
