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.

Had this on tap at Barley’s. The most impressive Pale Ale I’ve tried in a while. Gorgeous hoppy aroma. Deep orange-gold color with a pale head. Very nice citrus fruity hops.

Okay, this was very good. I am actually surprised that this is not rated as high as I expected. Amber in colour with no head. The nose is hoppy but not overly. the taste is just about the same. Nothing really stands out with this but it is very mello and just very enjoyable. If I could get ahold of this readily this would replace SNPA as my regular out beer.

Quite floral for an APA. Rye bite is definitely present but balanced with bready malts. A good session beer.

robpet (98) - Stone Mountain, Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Poured a nice amber color with an off white head. Pineapple nose and flavor. Palate was only decent. Alcohol flavor is a bit too much. Good bitter finish. Not all that impressed. RE-RATE: I know it has been a short time, but given that I find myself craving this brew, I needed to re-rate. It is quite unique and it has won me over.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - APR 15, 2005
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 (9727) - 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.
