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!

Mini-pour. Glowing orange. Rye caramel dominated. Chewy but quite sessionable. Smooth, easy going. Mild finish.

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.

On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill in Burlington VT. Amber with white head. Light rye malt and some other grains, hops are mostly citrus with some hints of resin, light caramel. Mild body and low carbonation, slightly dry and bittersweet, becoming quite bitter on the finish.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. The hop and rye combo of this beer is really good. Definitely worth trying.

Bottle from joeybones3. The color is an amber with a thin off-white head settling on top. It has citrus and caramel in the aroma with a touch of rye as well. The flavor shows a nice citrus hop and sweet caramel combo. Hoppy upfront with malt supporting and following with plenty of spicy rye notes sneaking in. The finish is dry and rather sharp and bitter. Yum. This packs a good punch for a 6% beer while being balanced. Maybe not the best but this is certainly one of the better Pale Ales I’ve had.

Bottle given to me by Dany as a gift for smuggling some Moldavian goat pornography into Canada for him. I brought and shared this bottle at the Hill Farmstead second anniversary party. Pours a hazed ruby with a thin white head. Musk, soft wheat and rye on the nose. Medium bodied, a touch of malt sweetness. Spicy rye, leading into a long bitter finish.

dcschiller (2201) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle from hbmason. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a soapy eggshell head. Aroma has caramel, rye, and resiny hops. Taste is sweet malts with some sharp bitterness and spice. Some dank, heavy hops. There are some fruit characters peeking out from behind it all. Medium bodied and a dry, bitter finish. This is a super bitter beer. Incredibly flavorful for a 6% beer.
