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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2005
Bottle. Lychee aroma. Crackery malt, dry mouthfeel, with a hoppy citrusy finish, felt empty and a touch stale to me. I quite like the aroma though.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2005
Bottle @ London Gatherying, Nov 05. Malty crystal and grapefruit aromas. Tasty and refreshing but fell somewhat short of expectations of initial sample.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2007 12 oz bottle. Pungent grapefruty and caramalt aroma. Hazy gold with a sticky white head. No visable carbonation. Kind of a grassy flavor. Medium body. So so beer.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A golden coloured beer. The aroma is nicely hoppy with some balancing sweetness. The taste is fruity citric hops. Tasty and intruigingly subtle. A little oily in the mouth but very tasty.

Bottle courtesy of Mullman. Pours amber with decent white head. Aroma is all sweet caramel malt up front with some spicy hop/rye background. Burnt/roasted malt in the flavor. Lots of rye in the finish and aftertaste. Bready bisquit finish. Big rye belches continue for awhile.

harrisoni (14857) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle at London Gathering Nov 2005. IPA US hop aromas. Strange orangey flavour and bad carbonation. Bit bland compared with the other US IPAs we had on the afternoon. Finish has some nice hop bitterness. It did lead to an interesting coversation about R.E.M. though with Mungo.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2005
Bottle at Chris’. A golden, bright beer. Citrus aroma. Sweet, malty beer balanced well with a pleasing US hop character. Good.

1FastSTi (3343) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Pours to a golden amber body with a thin nearly non-existent white head. The aroma is citrusy, lightly floral, and definitely dry-hopped. The flavor has that typical Rye flavor. Nice citrus hops. The palate is smooth, barely bitter. Nice and very easy to drink.
