COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Line Dry Rye is a honey-orange colored pale ale. It is crafted with 10% rye malt and 10% flaked rye for a complex malt profile. American hops give Line Dry a crisp bitterness and a slight citrusy flavor. Clean and refreshing , it ends with just a small note of honey in the finish that brings all of the elements together. The name ‘Line Dry’ was chosen as the perfect fit for summer in the Willamette Valley. With only a small window of opportunity to practice this energy saving practice, we think it is time you sit back with a pint of Line Dry Rye and watch the clothes dry!

Poured out of a bomber into a tulip glass. Golden color, moving to a little more orange. Nice head, 1/2 inch dirty white. Smell: First, honey then lots of citrus, grapefruit, stops just short of a typical IPA smell. I surprisingly like the honey smell. Taste: The honey is evident but in no way overpowering. Light bitterness at the end. Light body, medium carbonation, bubbly. The carbonation could be a little bit less. The use of honey was done very well. It is the perfect amount to balance the rest of the beer. The rye does not seem to be coming through though, which is why I wanted to try this in the first place. So if you are looking for a distinctive rye beer this probably is not the one, but it is still a good beer nonetheless.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a clear copper color that started off with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was barely any lacing. The smell had a nice blend of Rye malt to sweet citrus and allowing a nice honey aroma all around. The taste was mainly sweet but allowed a decent spice from the Rye and still had the honey to come in and blends very well. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but not overbearing at any cost. Overall, this was a pretty good Rye pale ale that had some nice honey to complement.

Bomber from Wine and Beer Haus, Seaside, OR. Earthy aroma with quite a bit of hops. Pours amber-orange with a decent white head and OK lacing. Earthy, rye flavors with a bit of honey to start. Finishes dry and slightly hoppy. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

7/30/2012. 22 oz. bottle. Pours light amber color with a white head. Caramel aromas with citrus, malt and hops. Light spicy flavors and not overly hoppy.

Draft. Nice rye here with some bite. Fresh hops and a citrus-sweet finish. A little juicy, but not overly aggressive on the alcohol so ultimately it all works.

Strykzone (4826) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2013
22 ounce bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This pours with a big off white three finger head that lasts nicely. The beer is quite hazy and cinnamon in color. The aroma is not big at all. It offers grain and pale malts with some soft fruit. The flavor offers some rye but not a lot. There is some fruit notes that really kick in during the after taste. Then they are bitter and citrus. Before that they are more tropical. Some floral, too. A smidge of honey and cinnamon. This is probably more of a pale ale that has rye. Nice.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Sports a bronze body with a light hop froth head. Crisp honey-rye nose with some uric acid trailing. Rye is at the forefront of the flavor and dominates the body--but nicely so. Just a straightforward, rye-accented, medium-bodied beer from end-to-end.

mathieuc (1181) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
Tap at Parkier Pie, West Glover, VT. Pours copper with a nice head with good retention and lacing. Not much notes about the aroma, lets just say it wasn’t offensive. Taste is of spicy rye (black pepper?) with medium bitterness. Hoppy but not really. Carbonation is high, maybe too much even. Good but not something I would seek out again.
