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.

Excellent. Just a great beer. I love the use of rye, and scary grain to brew with. It rides the complex hop palate all the way through to a dry and crisp finish. The off-sweet malt leads into a citrusy and slightly spicy fresh flavor. Excellent balance, not to heavy, and not a hop-monster either. It’s nice to see someone get a style just right.

Excellent PA. Right under Stone IPA in my opinion. Full bodied taste, and a hint of sweet maltiness.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Bottle pours a dull golden, quite hazy, mediocre white frothy head, lively carbonation, with nice lacing.   Malty nose, Oats or Rye, with a soft hop note.   Well balanced malt background, albeit rather light, with a good dose of hop juice.   Not big, but light and quite sessionable.   Body and mouthfeel are medium, but adequate for my tastes.   Finishes smooth, slightly sweet maltiness, with lingering bitterness.   Enjoyable.   Thanks goes out to goldtwins for the trade!

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade from goldtwins. Poured a darker, cloudy orange color with a smaller sized off white head. Nice hoppy aroma of flowers and oranges. Tastes are lighter than the aromas. Some rye in the taste. Lightly bitter. Overall a very drinkable pale ale.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Sour rye and bitter hops, yet not over the top. Clean, dry finish. Not sweet at all. Quite refreshing to have an pale ale that isn’t centered around grapefruit notes. Still, no more than a good, average, drinkable beer.

.Bottle from Beeryum, Poured golden amber, with a tight, fizzy head. Aroma of sweet sappy hops. Sticky like spruce. WOW! This is a very nice Rye P A. There is cascade hops, but they are not up front and in your face, only complimentary, ( do not love them). Crisp, clean, and sweet and bread. This would be Great in summer, when even a stout lover would pass on the heavy stuff in 90 degree weather. Try this

jtw (1098) - farmington, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2005
bottle from goldtwins. interest smell of malt, cascade hops, some spicy rye. loads of pale malts and some hops, but the rye makes a dry finish. not hoppy like a full-blown APA but this is a good beer that bends the style guidelines.

Got this one on a trade via mail. Pretty damn good pale ale. I wish I could buy this on Long Island. It has just a hint of rye flavor.
