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.

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2012
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...

mtravis63 (30) - Haughton, Louisiana, USA - DEC 27, 2014
From 12 oz. bottle to small sampling glass. Out of the bottle you a good scent of malt and rye followed by hop notes. Color is very clear and pale yellow with minimal head and lacing. To the palate it is a very light body, slightly carbonated with a short bitter finish. Overall this RPA is a solid drink with a good malty and hoppy combination.

TXBadger (1656) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours a nice clear orange color with off-white head. Rye, spice, floral notes, and some citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with rye and spice. Very nice, just a good amount of hop bit but enough caramel malt to round it out.

The golden orange rye ale pours slightly hazy. It has a medium body with a slightly bitter taste. The rye malt offers a unique and enjoyable flavor.

boFNjackson (4184) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle... Poured amber golden with a moderate head. Aroma of complimenting grassy hops and rye spice. Very earthy. A little drying, rye malts and ready-like malt came through to balance out the battering and citrus forward hops. Nice drinking pale ale.

Draft at Pub 5. The pour is a solid orange. The aroma is nice sweet hops. The taste is an almost perfect pale ale. The sweet blend of hops is great, a very easy drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
