COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tawny red and full of malt and hops, Full Moon’s unique flavor quells your palate’s longing for something truly distinctive. Marrying the smooth sweetness of malted rye and barley, the ale’s rich body is complemented by ample helpings of American hops. The culmination of our efforts is an assertive American pale ale, a hop lovers dream.

Bottle. Thanks, Nate. Big citrusy, full, and mildy stinky nose. Medium copper color. Light caramel initial flavors, with some peppery rye in mid palate (a light burn), nice late balance. Fruity and flowery from id palate onwards. Thin-medium body. Very nice.

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle from the local H.E.B. Copper color with some mild head retention. Aroma is a nice amount of fruit and mild hints of spicy rye.

Flavor is a very nice balance of rye malt and nice fruity and floral hops. The balance is really nice here. Seriously, very nice medium body with a mild level of carbonation that gives a smooth texture. And with the 5.6 % it just flys down the throat. Nicely crafted.

Great standard rye IPA. Nothing anyone can ever be mad at you about. Great beer. Drinks well when hot or cold out. Not super hop forward, but just enough bite. Very pleasant and a great standard. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS

Wish I’d kept a bottle of the old recipe to compare head-to-head. Lots of spicy rye in the aroma and taste. A bit more hoppy and bold than I remember.

Bottle from sampler 6 pack. Straight from the bottle. Aroma of sweetness from the hop and a bit of the bitterness. Initial notes are earthy notes of the rye intertwined with hop bitterness then lingers into bitterness then ends in sweet profile from the hop. Beautiful rye IPA. I think this recipe is better than the rye pale ale.

gkeh (320) - Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2015
This is the updated IPA.... Deep copper poor, nice head and excellent lacing. Some earthy spiciness, sweet caramel on the nose. Not much hops. Taste is sweet caramel and slight spiciness. Not a hophead’s IPA, that’s for sure.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
...and Coors has not sued yet?! Big head on amber. Hop aroma and ... maybe .... rye. Bigger body and flavor than just IPA. Rye gives it a little extra oomph. Strong hops, rye character and good body! YUM.

Voodoo (448) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours a very light copper color with a thin head which disappears quickly.......aroma of very faint spice.....taste is rye spiciness, faint grainy astringency ending with a medium bittering. Quite tasty.
