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.

beer pours a hazy goldish-amber with a rather thin white head and not too much lace. nose is toasty, with some spiciness thrown in. hops are rather subdued. flavor is quite interesting, with complex malt/grain notes mixed with a tart, green apple charecter. a fair amount of hop in the finish, but very balanced with the body of the beer. pretty easy drinker. too bad that the rye charecter wasn’t more prominent.

Out of a bottle from beeryum, once again thanks Dave. Falls nicely into the glass in a slightly clouded orange haze. Floralness pushes the nose carrying the orange peel scent from the glass. The hops really drive this beer with a touch of the rye that quickly heed way to more hops. A relatively good mouthfeel to it, drys up nicely. A solid beer and one I’d pass along to others. Keep it up turtlemen.

12 oz bottle via beeryum as a bonus beer. Thanks Dave!!! Pours amber a little cloudy with a short offwhite head. Aroma is citrus oranges and pineapples and some grapefruit. Starts out quite sweet and malty with some nice rye flavor on the backside and a good dose of amarillo and cascades in the middle giving it a touch of a bitter kick. The aftertaste is sweet almost like peaches. This was another fine brew. I have to say overall I’m quite impressed with the two rye brews from this brewer

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2005
12oz bottle and draft. Nice golden orange pour and small white head. Hops are floral and a little grassy. Nice medium malty pale ale, with good rye flavor. Good body and carbonation for the style. This is an essential fridge-stocker for any Georgian. Draft version of this had a much bigger rye nose. I wish the bottled version had that.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2005
pale golden body with a thin white layer of head that faded very quickly, aroma is a sweet citrus mixed with floral and grassy hops. the hops in the taste are counterbalanced very nicely by the malt sweetness, and that sweetness carries into the tail, not the bitterness of the hops, so at the end, the lingering taste is actually nice instead of harsh and bitter. nice smooth body and crisp clean mouthfeel. very enjoyable, cant wait to try the rye2. i believe thanks to goldtwins are in order for this, its been a while so i’m not positive.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2005
This was awesome. I had the rye squared before I tried this and I wish I could have had them side by side in a comparison. Had this on tap at Mellow Mushroom Marietta. I loved the hoppy flavors coming through on this, orange and lemon flavors peeking through as well. Great orange color with nice white head. Good full body and nice awesome clean finish. I could enjoy this any time. Was surprised, yet way pumped, to find such a hoppy Pale Ale on the East side of the US

this was pretty bad ass, did not remind me of a pale ale, this was a straight up IPA. Nice, thick, bright cloudy sunset orange color. Big time hops in the aroma, lots of wet citrus tones. Very nice body to it, big time hops, very smooth. This had the stuff to hang with any of the beers in cali, hell ya, go terrapin.

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.
