COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of our adventurous friends at Sky Dive Inc. in Hastings, Michigan, we crafted a truly adventurous brew in Sky High Rye. A West Coast-style Pale Ale with rye malt, Sky High Rye boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops. The hops contribute flavor notes of lemons, peaches, and pine needles, combined with the sweet, malty flavors of toffee and bread. Rye adds a pleasant peppery, spicy note like a fresh slice of pumpernickel bread. Very well-rounded and very drinkable, Sky High Rye will surely inspire adventure in all who taste it.
This West Coast-style Pale Ale is brewed with eighty percent English barley malts and twenty percent rye malt. It boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops, contributing notes of lemons, peaches and pine needles and is anchored by the sweet malty flavors of toffee and freshly baked pumpernickel bread.

Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce bottle. The appearance had a super light golden orange colored body leaving a nice foamy two finger white head, a lot of ringy light foamy lacing appears. The body is too hazy for any carbonation to be seen. The aroma had hops and rye up front with some nice citrus in the background. The taste was pretty much the same with a super nice sweet spicy aftertaste. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. A bit of a dry finish and a pretty drinkable beer. Overall, I’m quite impressed and wouldn't mind being able to drink this one again.

From bottle into pint glass. Aroma is citrus and pine from the hops, with some bready malts. The citrus in particular was dominated by an "artificial lemon" flavor - almost like Pledge or Lysol - that I did not care for. The taste had some good spicy rye flavors. Medium-light body with lively carbonation and a bitter finish. My least favorite of Arcadia's "Hop Box" variety pack.

Slightly cloudy gold beer with a medium foamy bright white head. Nose of orange pith, pine resin, and herbs. Flavor is fairly dry with a musky dough-like core, followed by some spice and finishing with a slightly astringent, waxy bitterness. Pretty good.

Bright light yellow, thick head, hazy. Sweet and notes of dough and grain in the nose. Taste is sweet, spicy, and hop influenced all at once. Spicy medium finish. It's a pretty good beer.!

commonmac (1347) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2017
On tap at the source. Part of the large scale brewery road trip. Unfortunate plastic cup. Price you pay to play bags outdoors. Lighter golden color with plenty of white head. Aroma is mostly citrus with maybe a hint of floral. Taste is mostly bitter but has the pleasant grainy spicy notes of rye. Bright and punchy come to mind as adjectives. Ends with a bitter aftertaste that is well executed. Very solid.

12/23/16. On tap somewhere while home in IL for Christmas. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Toffee and rye bread, caramel and dark fruits on the aroma. Lightly sweet bready flavor, malty, caramel, rye bread. Not bad.

Pours murky lemon yellow with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, floral and lemon. Light sweet flavor that finishes bitter but still seems to balance.
