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.

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.

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 (4817) - 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 (411) - 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.

ramboraffe (979) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2014
355 ml bottle. Clear amber with white head. Smell is sweet caramel with fruit and floral hops. Taste is caramel malty with hoppy grass and floral. Semi sweet with low bitterness and low carbonation.

airrick2003 (638) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Appearance: has a small beige head that dissipates quickly, beer is a very hazy amber color" Aroma: very slight malt sweetness, pretty bland and very subtle Taste: slight malt sweetness, has a bitterness that kicks in after that, alcohol Palate: lively carbonation, bitter aftertaste, medium mouthfeel Overall: nothing stands out about this beer, it’s bitter, alcohol seems to be too prominent

DomPiwa (53) - FRANCE - AUG 30, 2014
Poured from bottle a slightly hazy amber with a small head. Aroma of barley. Crisp and full on the palette with hints of dough and biscuit. The end is fairly bitter and slightly dry. Excellent! My thanks to a good friend who brought this bottle directly from Texas to Europe for me to taste.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2015 Pours a clear golden reddish color with a finger thick head that stick around. Not much aroma. Medium mouthfeel with active carbonation. Taste is fresh and pretty hoppy with some rye.

A definite aroma of rye. Nice malty base that is complemented with a bittering from both the hops and rye.
