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.

Good powerful pale ale. Noticeable hops and rye aroma. Good deep amber color with a decent white head. Great full mouthfeel with some weight without being heavy. Good carbonation. Flavors were balanced and smooth. It leaned toward the IPA side a bit with the rye adding a spicy character. Nice drinkable beer.

JDBaker11058 (1131) - Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2014
Appearance: amber orange, short light beige head. Aroma: peppery rye, juicy citrus, caramel, light herb. Taste: starts with a slightly sweet dose of caramel and caraway, giving way to bright citrus, cool pine, and earth. Finish: dry and delicately bitter, with a nice waft of rye heat to cleanse the mouth for the next sip. Notes: I’m a huge fan of rye beers, and I liked the balance of this one quite a bit. Would drink again.

Brewdork (205) - Sanford, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle best by 2/7/14 (whoops) poured into shaker. Hazy amber honey color with a two-finger foamy white cap. Head retention and lacing are both minimal, but carbonation is impressive. Aroma is spicy rye, pepper and fruit (mango maybe?). Flavor starts out as snappy rye transitioning into a citrusy middle and a very clean finish. Another winner from Terrapin.

3/2/14. With Michelle. Atlanta airport. On draft. At BW's. Why not just do what we know? Exactly. BW's rarely disappoints even if they do have a limited selection. Huge plus, though, all draft beers come in 24 oz glass. For a rye pale ale, this is pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pine aroma. Flavors of orange, rye, caramel and wheat. The wheat detracts for me, but offers a nice crispness. Well carbonate.

Bottle. The look is clearish, whitish head, and goldenish in color. Very ish. The smell is hops, fruits, floral, lemon, orange, and nice. The taste is bitterness, fruits, malts, hops, ok, caramel, but somewhat dry.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Appearance: very clear gold with almost some hues of amber, pours with a very large beige head that settles down to a nice medium head Aroma: grass, pine, hops, some malty sweetness, heavy creamy Taste: very strong citrus, floral, bitterness, some spice to it, slight bitter aftertaste Palate: light mouthfeel, leaves mouth dry, faint bitter aftertaste, very easy drinking Overall: awesome beer, I really like the hops and the oh so subtle malt background, if I had to make it better if say even more hops with the same amount of malt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
