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.

Bottle. The pour was a clear straw yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced to a thin film with a small collar and did possess some excellent streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light a bread malt, floral hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, rye, citrus (orange), caramel an a mild fruity ester. The taste was lightly malty sweet with a touch of caramel and a slight fruitiness from the start with a hint of rye, a bit of toffee and a mild citrus bitterness towards the finish. The flavor hung on for a little while with the sweet bitter taste fading slowly into the background. Mouthfeel was light in body and a tad watery in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a Pale Ale that was rather easy going down, and had a very nice malty, sweet and mildly bitter taste that left you craving another...

Enjoyably well balanced beer, earthy hops nicely balanced by slightly sweet, nutty malt with hints of grapefruit and orange zest. Lovely beer.

One of my "go to IPA’s" especially for outside grilling and hanging out. Well balanced and not too hoppy if not in the mood. Great "bang for your buck" brew

This is a nice beer, the rye and malty back bone is really awesome as it provides enough balance and a good bit of spice to the citrus and floral notes.

Pours a clear yellow gold with moderate head. Aroma is mild citrus and garlic. Flavor is mild ,bitter and herbal/grassy with a unpleasant burnt flavor in the aftertaste. This stuff was really hard to drink and became even worse as it warmed. Considering the amount of good reviews I wonder if this was a bad keg/batch. Will have to revisit at some point.

Lemony spicy aroma. Slightly cloudy from rye. Thin head. Clean. Taste is rye with subtle spicy hop flavor. Light body finishes crisp and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (371) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2014
12oz bottler poured into a shaker. Strong notes of rye bread and citrus as well as some caramel and pine. A big, puffy, off-white head leaves behind a messy webbing of lace. A big poofy island lingers for a long time, but eventually reduces to a thin soapy ring sitting on top of a clear, caramel-orange colored beer. The taste is a medium-high bitter, but balanced nicely with a smooth, medium sweetness. The medium body, oily textured beer has a creamy carbonation. It finishes with a caramel and rye, juicy/syrupy quality with some bread and fruit. The aftertaste is a light, mellow, dry and clean rye grain.

Rcvd in trade. Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice somewhat light transparent to somewhat hazy pale brown color leading to light tinges of orange coloring along the sides of the glass. There was a decent light lacing sliding right on into the beer. The smell had a faded sort of rye note to it along with a light floral yet somewhat spiciness. The taste was a combination of the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body and had a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed fairly good for the style and for me as it was harsh but not overly done. Overall, in my opinion, this was a good Rye Beer I’d have again.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark golden color with minimal off-white head. Aroma is floral with a bit of citrus. Flavor is balanced- somewhat sweet and also hoppy and bitter in the finish. Light-to-medium bodied. Tasty and drinkable. Not too shabby.

On draft in augusta. Not usually a pale ale fan but this one is good. Hoppy aroma and initial taste but finishes smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
