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.

HopsIPAndDrunk (43) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Hoppy aroma (in actuality I would blame that on the rye) with skunky hints. Amber-Orange in color with a clear appearance. Head appears frothy-white upon pouring, dissapating rather rapidly. Medium-bitter taste with an impressingly smooth finish. Light body with a slimey/oily texture -the brew’s only downfall. The flat carbonation seems to contribute to this effect.

UXO (1121) - CANADA - JAN 26, 2016
Appearance: hazy translucent pale amber with one finger of creamy light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone and tropical fruit, earthy rye, bready malt, light citrus and floral. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body , moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter and mildly spicy finish. (3/5) Nice - there’s a definite rye presence that’s very well integrated with the IPA bitterness, such that neither really dominates. Certainly it’s not as heavy-handed or spicy as some rye ales I’ve had. I’m not saying there’s necessarily anything wrong with a spicy rye beer, but this different, more subtle approach makes for an interesting change. Nothing earth-shattering but a nicely quaffable rye. (14/20)

BeerRenter76 (473) - Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Originally rated on 4/2/08. Never had a rye ale before but it was fairly decent, copper-tanish color. rye and malt scented and flavored, has a little bite to it. I Will probably buy it again.

DrNosha (1017) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2015
12oz Flasche. Das Foto hier zeigt das falsche Bier. Hellbraunes Bier. Kräftig fruchtiges Aroma mit Roggen und Sauerteig Noten. Geschmack nach Krustenbrot und bitterer Frucht.

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2015
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 (5230) - 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.
