We Consider this an extreme version of an American Pale Ale. It has a very up front floral and citrus aroma from a late cascade addition and dry hopping with Amarillo. This beer also has a big malt background to balance the bitterness of the hops. The rye malt cleans up your palette after you swallow so the hop flavor does not stick in your mouth too long.
Now available in bottles.

Pours a very hazy golden color with a creamy head.Just like the ad says:floral hops.perfumy,citrus.Very nice.The rye malt adds a different flare altogether.the nose from this isnít quite telling the whole story here.hops do come thruí but they are toned down by the rye malt.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Pours a coper color with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops (not as much as the tasp version though), oranges, fruity, and sweet. Flavor malty sweet and citrusy with a hop bitter backing. Good balance. Light to medium bodied.

Sampled at Charlotte Oktoberfest í04. Amber coloring with an off-white head. I never really got the íryeí part of the flavor but this was a very enjoyable pale. Easy drinking, yet full-flavored and hoppy. Enjoyable.

Nice amber with a white head. I didnít get the rye nose I expected. Got more of a citrusy, IPA kind of nose. It was good, but just unexpected. A little watery and light on carbonation. The flavor wasnít bad. More an IPA than a rye ale.

SpringsLicker (3382) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2004
This has a nice copper color and makes a decent white head. The aroma is nice, hoppy and floral yet different in some way. Hops are there in the flavor, but malt comes through nicely. Very smooth with a nice aftertaste. One of the few beers that has a commercial description that accurately describes it. I like this one. While itís not a hop monster, there is some flavor here and it doesnít come off as being thin and watery.

Jax said this would substitute for Bass for the Tan in Black’n’Tan at my bday party. Said we would na be dissappoi9nted and were they right!! My bro and I tapped the keg at 1400 the guests arrived at 1800 and we turned them in at 0400. Hoppy fresh with rye taste, loved by all. Still good the next night when I foated the keg.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Poured straw with a thin white head...smelled very floral with peppery spiciness to it, but also a citrusy tartness...this was not hoppy at the back of the mouth or just as you swallow...this was hoppy as soon as it hit the tip and front sides of my tongue, I honestly am yet to find a beer that does that...I have never actually tasted hops on my sweet or salty taste buds before...donít get me wrong, this was not a hoppy beer, cannot be too many IBUs, but it was just different...clean dry finish...this is perhaps the best commercial description I have ever read, then tried...it is my rating...thanks for the beer Matt!!

Golden color out of the bottle with a fizzy white head and a hoppy nose with lemons in it. Dark caramel sweetness with a rye grain flavor and a strong hop/lemon citrus finish. Nice beer.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 09.04.04 12oz bottle courtesy goldtwins. The pour is an orange tinged gold with a fine, off-white head. Lots of visible eff persistently streaming, I love that. Hoppy, sweet nose, grainy. Soft body, quick finish. Fresh, floral flavors, bright. I donít really get any rye in the flavor - too bad, I like rye. Thanks, Larry! 20090610 bump for appreciationís sake. Thank goodness I found this stuff in six packs in Huntsville, AL.
