A unique twist on a popular beer style- Wry Pale Ale recreates the classic American Pale Ale with just a touch of rye malt. A generous dose of Cascade and Amarillo hops and a bit of dry-hopping give this ale an originally-delicious taste. 13º Plato O.G. 40 IBUs

UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 For a pale ale it has a lot of flavor but not too complex and very refreshing. slightly bitter, but not overly "hop-y".

Reid (2338) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 17, 2010
22 oz bomber from Capital Market, Salem. Slightly hazy light orange coloured ale with a large creamy eggshell white head. Nice hoppy fresh aroma floral and citric in nature. Very nice taste bready malts, a touch of rye and gorgeous hopping..super stuff. Great on the palate, the rye adds good body. Overall very drinkable yet complex. I liked this one a lot

SrSilliGose (3328) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle from belmont station. Pours a glowing orange amber with a small soapy offwhite head. pretty color. Really nice floral and citrusy hop aroma. gumballhead hop profile. sharp citrus,grapefruit, pine. also some light bready caramel and a hint of rye in the background. hop forward aroma and flavor. a nice bright, hoppy, sessionable pale ale. rye is an afterthought, but still an awesome beer regardless. would drink this regularly if i had access to it. becomes a bit breadier as it warms. serving this cold helps hide the flaws and brighten up the citrus hop bite. want more beers like this!

not much smell to mention, but the taste is just right. rye malt is evident and adds a nice touch. very nice beer. HEY RATEBEER!! Why does the average score of the beer go DOWN when I rate ABOVE the mean?

Right where it should be standing in the middle, the low tones of the rye malt giving this beer a blessing. Nice and smooth. Word.

bhensonb (14172) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Bomber. Pours hazy orange god with a bubbly/foamy white head. Nice citric hop aroma. Medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is floral/citric over mild malt flavors. Something like rye seems to pop up. Leaves a nice lingering bitter behind. It’s very refreshing and enjoyable.

pours a clear orangish with a small white head, and great lacing. smell of malt, rye, a little citrus, some spice, and some caramel. taste is of hops, rye, spice, a little grapefruit in the back, some wheat, ends a little dry.
