A few cans at Beer Study courtesy of some generous gentlemen. This is a fucking tasty pale ale. Tropical fruits, light rye, dry finish. Excellent. Westbrook continues to impress.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Nice citrus aroma with a hint of rye. Very flavorful grapefruit with a slight rye bitterness that lasts through finish. Very refreshing and drinkable, while still having a lot of character.
Had to update rating after trying this a number of times. The fresh citrusy hops are incredible, with a nice bitter bite delivered by the rye. Really, really good.

The beer came out of the can cloudy, and looked very much like a liquefied bread. The smell was that of fresh cut hay and tropical mangoes. The taste was very rye-centric, with a spicy, grainy, flavor, helped along nicely by herbal and spicy hops. The beer was very dry, with a creamy finish. The overall fell was exactly what I expected from a beer made with this hardy crop.

For teh abv incredible aroma and taste and mouthfeel... nearly as good as one of my favorites monkeynaut. but at nearly 2% less very nice! Incredible hop aroma with a semico bite but rye which keeps it from being off flavored and offensive. Very nice brew.

Smell is hoppy and sharp- pungent hops and some rye. Taste is very grainy and deliciously well balanced. Earthy hops up front, smooths out into grainy malt favors. Rye is an undertone throughout and sharpens up midway through. Excellent mouthfeel- medium light body, well carbonated; this is an excellent beer to session. It’s light, pretty low in alcohol and really delicious and well balanced.

Grassy citrusy fruity burst of flavor at first sip. Rye dominates the back of the palate with its lovely spiciness. Pours a hazy orange and can get pretty foamy. For a straight apa this one has a Tom of flavor and character. Another solid Westbrook beer.
