Smell- HUGE juicy, succulent tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, light resin, and floral accents. One of the best smelling beers I’ve ever had!
Taste- Immensely drinkable. Tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, pine resin and floral accents. Rye compliments it wonderfully with a nice kick of that spicy rye flavor. Good malt presence as well.
Overall- This was one of the best beers I’ve ever had. Huge, thick, succulent, citrus aromas and flavors. This will be in my fridge from here on out.

Rye ales can become ‘cerealy’ and too reminiscent of a bowl of Shreddies when overdone. One Claw is subtly rye influenced with lots of hops to balance. Clean and rich with lots of citrusy, grassy hops.
Grapefruit, mango and guava flood the palate. A superb rye pale at just the perfect ABV.

I’m a big fan of hoppy ales, with that being said, this rye pale ale is absolutely delicious! Citrusy, grape fruity and the palate feel is superb.

Great tasting American Pale Ale. The Rye balances it and sets it apart. Good looking beer with a rich color and wonderful forming head with great lacing. Smell and taste the hops and rye. Great brew.

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.

Poured from a 12oz can I got in trade, thanks Erick. Aroma is huge citrus and light rye. Flavors are big citrus, rye spice, and light caramel malt. This pale is amazing. Very juicy, makes your mouth water wanting more. One of the better pales I’ve had.
