Tap at brewpub. Golden malty body, the rye side does not stand out so obviously as a peppery side in the hops takes quite a lot of place. Lemony and floral notes. Long aftertaste. Good stuff, again.

Nice ber pour with a good amount of sticky frothy head. Great aroma of citrus hops with some piney notes and some rye. Flavor is more of the same, and finishes with a nice citrus hop punch. A really nice APA.

jgb9348 (5565) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2009
Deep copper and brown coloured body with a nice dense tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, bitter malt and some floral scents. Medium-bodied; Strong hop flavour at first, then fades to light malt and nuts. Aftertaste clean, but showing some floral and hoppy characteristics - nice. Overall, nice - light and mild, but showing some odd and complex tastes. If you only have one here - try something else, but this isn’t horrible! I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 09-April-2009.

On tap, DDC. I have been meaning to try this beer for months, but never got around to it. Pours dark orange, with ruby-red tinges. Aroma is of light floral hops, and a bit of balancing sweetness. Having known this was a rye beer, I expected a strong spiciness in the flavors. However, what I found was a well-hopped, crisp pale ale, with a tad sharp of a finish (the rye?). I found myself loving this brew as a session beer, with very desirable traits of citrus, esters, and subdued sweet fruit.

CapFlu (5100) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2008
(Bottle) Sampled at the Brewpub. Pours a thin, white dissipated frothy head atop a deep copper body. Nose of smoked pale ale. Backgound of coffee grounds, pleasant caramel and tart hops backing. Okay beer. Very fresh and refreshing.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - AUG 3, 2008
On tap at Dieu Du Ciel. Brown pour- quite dark for the style. Aroma is caramel malt, some citrus and rye. Flavor is bursting with caramel, and subtle hints of rye, balanced nicely with a robust hop content. Palate is smooth and full.

Pours a reddish brown with small head. Aroma holds malt, rye is evident, bready style. Flavor is great- malt sticks, but balances well with hops and citrus- incredible. Smooth palate, wondrous APA.

Cask at Spuyten Duyvil. Citrusy hop aroma over some rich spicy malts. A combination of lemon and grapefruit along with a bit of pine and tropical fruit. Some nice spicy wheat/rye character in the back. A hint of peppery spiciness. Flavour is good and fresh with lots of wheat and lightly caramelly malts. Nice combination of spiciness, citrusy/tropical hops and a lingering citrus flavour. Good balance.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Cask at Spuyten. Hard to call this a pale ale, considering how dark the pour was. This could easily have been mistaken for a brown. Has a slightly funky, earthy malt and euro hop character to it. Mushroomy and rye in the flavor, smooth and gentle from the cask pull. Not enough carbonation. There is a fair bit of rye in this, but really this is an earthy beer through and through. Seems more English than American in style to me.
