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.

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.

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 (26) - 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.

tillmac62 (282) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2014
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.

jredmond (5738) - 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 (1542) - 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 (2398) - 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.
