COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special brew incorporates malted rye in the grain bill lending a spicy character and complex flavors. Generously hopped with Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial. This hoppy pale ale has a sneaky bite that will creep up and leave you smiling!

Thanks to FooFaa aka Dan for bringing this one to Ffej of July IX

A - Pours copper orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of spicy rye, slightly dulled citric hops, pine, and biscuit malt. I can already tell this is going to be one chewy beer.

T - Starts off with a nice citric hop kick quickly giving way to a mix of chewy malt, spicy rye, and some pine tree. It isn’t as chewy as I was expecting, a welcome surprise. The finish is mostly chewy with a tiny bit of hop bitterness, lingering for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Chewy feel with plenty of it lingering through the finish.

O - I liked this one. I am not the biggest fan of overly chewy beers and I was afraid this one might go along those lines but I am glad it didn’t. Can’t wait to try some of the other Lawson’s offerings.

Pours with a sticky foam head and has a light reddish amber color to it. The aroma is rather hoppy of citrus and pine. There is also the blended scents of rye and semi sweet malts. The flavor is of sugar, crystal malts, in addition there is a defined rye flavor that adds a crisp and dry quality. The booze is mildly hidden by a grainy rye, bitter, and sweet taste. In the finish the bitterness lingers pleasantly. Overall this is a very interesting beverage with the pale ale and rye combination.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pours clear orange with a fat creamy head of tan foam that lasted and left nice lace. Sweet light malt smell. Spicy sweet rye with a touch of lemon and sweet malt. A bold hop floral and a peppery and spicy rye. A fruit skin sweetness and a very faint musk. It smells like a rye beer. Light sweet rye grain cracker with sweet flowers. Taste is pale malt with a lovely hop floral and bitter. My question was "Is there wheat in this?" There’s a hint of something smooth in the malt. The hops abound and are IPA style bitter. A touch of graham cracker is especially pleasant to the both the nose and the drink. The bitter is sharp in the finish and and there was some earth in the malt too.

22 oz bottle. Foggy orange brown with a huge foamy head. Nose is orange, toffee and apple with hints of papaya and crayons; odd. Crisp medium body finishing dry with a bite. Taste is lemon-lime, grapefruit soda, grass and green melon. Carb levels a bit high but still a fun, interesting brew.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Mike! The beer is transparent orange, with an average sized head that leaves decent lacing behind. The aroma is of spicy malt (rye) and hops, with some pine and citrus in the mix as well. The flavor is nice, with everything balanced well. The rye component is subtle, but present throughout. Citrus and floral hop notes mingle nicely with a strong malt backbone. Overall, this was a pleasant and drinkable brew, but not anything that really moved me. I would definitely have it again.
