COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed as an American Pale Ale with a twist, a healthy dose of rye adds a subtle spiciness and frothy white head while generous amounts of pleasantly spicy and floral American hops compliment the gentle rye character.

Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy orange color, medium to full sized white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, hops, light to moderately orange peel. Taste malts, hops, orange peel again, overripe fruits, old hops maybe, average bitterness.

johndoughty (4077) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. Bronze with a very clear appearance. Spicy and powerful but not to the point of being overpowering. The spices do not take just blend very well with the hops and other flavours. Seriously impressive.

Hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy with fine carbonation. Mellow airy malts with traces of cream and rye spice. Tangerine and orange hops, touch of peel. Sorachi Ace like lemon lingers in the background. Light semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable and tasty.
