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.

Clear orange-copper with a small white head that lasts and leaves lots of thick lacing. The aroma is a pleasant blend of caramel malt, citrusy hops, and rye. The flavor is a mix of sweet to bitter with malt and citrus first, then bitterness and rye. Delicious.

Very bitter hoppiness but the rye malt really cuts into the bitterness on the finish. As a big fan of rye whiskey and other rye beer I really enjoyed this one. Not your usual pale ale but a real nice change of pace from the norm. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tessic (954) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
This rye PA poured a medium Amber colour with a nice, foamy, off white head. Scents include spruce hops, light citrus hops and a little varnish? First swig was a little thin but a good belt of citrus hops. Flavours of tea, grapefruit and malt most prominent. Finish is bitter with hop flavour lingering...

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 12 oz can. Pours clear honey colored. Aroma of citrus, grain, tropical fruit. Flavor of citrus, spicy rye, bread, tea. A fun take on a pale ale that adds the kick of rye without overpowering.

AirForceHops (4681) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2015
12 oz. bottle with a best before date of 8/21/15. Thanks going to weihenweizen for this opportunity. Copper in color with fast dying head. Aroma has a large fruit character with the rye coming in underneath.

The flavor has the mentioned rye with some mild cascade hops ( floral and fruity) the body is on the real thin side (borderline watery). Other than the thin mouthfeel this is a pleasing brew. No off flavors, freshness is paramount on this one. The rye saves this brew for me.
