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.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Appearance: very clear gold with almost some hues of amber, pours with a very large beige head that settles down to a nice medium head Aroma: grass, pine, hops, some malty sweetness, heavy creamy Taste: very strong citrus, floral, bitterness, some spice to it, slight bitter aftertaste Palate: light mouthfeel, leaves mouth dry, faint bitter aftertaste, very easy drinking Overall: awesome beer, I really like the hops and the oh so subtle malt background, if I had to make it better if say even more hops with the same amount of malt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrunkSanta410 (278) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2014
On tap at LV Bar and Grill, Midland GA. Pours a hazy golden color, solid head retention. Aroma is hoppy, grassy notes and hints of spice / rye. Taste is spice and rye forward, transitioning to slight hoppy bitterness and finishing dry. Palate is well carbonated, smooth. I really enjoyed this.

sudomorph (600) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a one finger, egg shell head that thins to a film. Aroma is pleasant. Notes of bread, caramel, citrus, and mild, spicy rye. Taste is balanced but slightly bitter. Starts out with a mild citrus and bready caramel then moves to a spicy rye finish. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall pretty nice. I?m not sure what I think of the rye but it is well crafted and refreshing. Might get again if I was in the mood. Cheers!

cavnar (12) - Pace, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2014
A nice blend with the rye, mouthfeel is great and aroma is a nice balanced sweetness and hops. Beer is a but hazy with not much head or lacing. Taste pretty good, a very nice balance. I would definitely drink this again but it probably won't make it into my rotation, but I was happy I tried it.

jde123 (764) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Not a bad beer - pours nicely medium orange, appearance like honey, aroma is sweet, yet with some unidentified notes like bourbon or something (likely rye, hence the name, right?) - kind of falls apart on the taste, though overly sour and slightly flat...weird.

beerbrains (22) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2014
A - not a real strong aroma - citrus hops and bready malt Appearance - orange with a nice white head that thins out fast; translucent and bubbly, lacing Taste - this beer has such a smooth taste; not what I expected; you can taste the hops but it is not bitter or strong - ends a little salty P - average carbonation; medium body, slick texture Wow - this is good! Drinkable and not a strong hops taste which is what I like. A keeper on the list.

BBD 4/1/14. Light amber pour with a nice head and lacing that lasts. Nose is quite nice of blended hops, mostly pine, over a slight sweetness. Light medium body with normal carbonation. The taste is lacking. Not much is going on, and what is, is somewhat weak. Rye and hop flavor are only hints and the bitterness is mild. Crisp finish. If you want a rye, go with Founders or Great Lakes.

Bottle. Hazy dark gold with a big fluffy white head and some floaties. Aroma is quite strong. Pine sol and peach up front, light lemon notes and orange rind later. Citrus flavors are intense up front. Lots of orange and lemon again. Slight spice from the rye and some faint floral notes in the finish. Medium-thin body but the carbonation is too heavy. Very distracting. Good but needs some fine tuning.
