COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

weihenweizen (2192) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle, best before the third week in May 2015, poured into snifter. Clear light orange with medium white head. Aroma is rye malt with, medium body, low carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is citrus hops, floral hops, some rye, and solid caramel malt backbone. Good pale ale.

TH28 (251) - - MAR 21, 2015
12oz bottle. Appearance: A hazy dark golden, with a small white foam cap. Aroma: Rye graininess is dominant, with a light floral and citrus hop note. Taste: Spicy rye grain maltiness up front, with moderately sharp bitterness and slight herbal and floral hop flavor. Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish: Well balanced, with dry finish and lingering rye flavor on the tongue. Overall: No doubt this is a rye beer, with a dominant rye note from the aroma all the way thru the finish. Well balanced with a subdued hop profile. Definitely closer to an English PA than American

matty (256) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark gold color with a thin white head that settles to a film. Aroma is a little spicy, some malt. Medium body, lots of carbonation, strong rye taste but not over the top. The rye theme carries on to the finish. Pretty good.

JStax (3771) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has floral, grassy, juicy qualities. The taste is mildly bitter with a bit of fruity sweetness. I get just a touch of rye spice. Bready toward the finish. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Not bad, really.

mtravis63 (30) - Haughton, Louisiana, USA - DEC 27, 2014
From 12 oz. bottle to small sampling glass. Out of the bottle you a good scent of malt and rye followed by hop notes. Color is very clear and pale yellow with minimal head and lacing. To the palate it is a very light body, slightly carbonated with a short bitter finish. Overall this RPA is a solid drink with a good malty and hoppy combination.

TXBadger (1915) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours a nice clear orange color with off-white head. Rye, spice, floral notes, and some citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with rye and spice. Very nice, just a good amount of hop bit but enough caramel malt to round it out.

12oz bottle via variety pack. Pours a slightly hazy Amber color with a small foamy white head. Atoma of rotted oranges, caramel malt, rye spice, and grapefruit juice. Taste mimics the nose.
