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.

blankboy (7354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Draught at Mr. Goodbar. We had several pitchers of this stuff between us. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of light hops, grain, some mild sweetness and fruit. Flavour of light hops, grain, fruit and caramel malt. Decent bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not as much rye as I would have expected but still a nice beer, I enjoyed it.

johndoughty (5090) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle. Bronze and malty with some hops and flowers in the background. Add citrus and you finish up with a complex and refreshing beer. In fact an excellent beer that far,far exceeded my expectations.

llcooldave (1197) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Pours a nice cloudy amber honey color. Head looks very "frosty" almost like an icy foam floating on the top. Pretty cool. Nice sweet toffee aroma coupled with piney hops notes. Easy malt flavors at the beginning with a strong bitter citrus hops trailing at the end. Overall, this is a really good brew. Sad I only got a couple of bottles and cant get this here in TX.

Had on tap at Smokin Joes A-pours a transparent yellow color with a pure white head. S-the nose has a fair amount of grain up front and it seems to stay present throughout, the rye is there with notes of spice and a light citrus hop in the back. T-light grain, much lighter than the nose, notes of caramel and a good bit of rye with a light spice. the hops are quite present as well, citrus and floral hops dominate the finish with virtually no bitterness. M-a good feel with a medium body and actually a little chewy, well carbonated beer with a crisp slightly prickly finish. D-this is a good beer, well balanced with the rye malts and the hop assertiveness, the spice characteristic is light and associated with the rye. the feel is nice and makes this a very good drink.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Hazy golden amber with a rocky white head, medium lively... citrus aroma is big to start with some mildly sweet notes... rye flavor is noticeable, some nice citrus notes followed by spicy rye that drys the finish very nicely... medium body, bone dry finish...

harrisoni (17476) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2010
Bottle from GBBF 2010. Orange amber with lasting thin beige head. Hoppy aroma, touch of plasticine and spicy rye malt. Its a decent slightly spicy earthy pale ale. Nice enough, if not too exciting. The plasticine is a bit odd though.
