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.

conway (1429) - - JAN 6, 2014
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.

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle with Linh. Pours a light amber orange with nice white lacing. Aroma is faint melon. Mouthfeel is medium and soft with notes of melon hop, light citrus and grapefruit. Good.

pinkzambia (1474) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle: Semi-cloudy copper color with a small head. Floral aroma with a little hairspray. Sharp flavor of what I assume to be rye and perfumy hops. Average body with a musty aftertaste.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours a sightly hazy golden color with a finger of foam. The nose is a mixture of pine citrus and honeyed malts kissed with a touch of spice. The palate is bright with some good citrus notes that lead into a round malt mid palate and a bitter finish with a touch of rye spice that is well integrated.

mike5326 (907) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Poured from a tap. Hazy Golden color, medium white frothy head. Floral hops smell. Nice body with a great lighter hop taste and a clean. Great drinking beer.

Caytinator (943) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear, honey-colored. Decent lacing, medium head. Good aroma, a little grainy-sweet, taste matches, but with quite a bit more bitterness at the back. Good taste not overwhelming in terms of rye. Nicely done actually, pretty medium body, not too strong of an aftertaste. Decently well balanced. Not the best rye beer, but far from the worst.

gyllenbock (4634) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Sample at SBWF 2013. Dark golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of malt, rye, hops and with a fairly bitter finish. Nothing wrong with this one but it was a bit weaker than expected.

ectotherm (13) - farmington, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Still alittle hoppy but like the yeast choice for the overtones. Really a nice why to get the rye.

rosenbergh (6800) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
12 oz bottle. BBE M11W3Y13. (Midtown Wine) Nashville, TN.
Clear amber colour with a small white head. Nice hops, sweet fruitiness and pine in a delicious aroma. Balanced. Oh my, it’s tasty. Smooth! Sweet fruits, pine and mild resin. Malty body. Very good!
