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.

Dans Bachelor Party Extended Weekend Rating #28 of 90. Tap at Arcadia, shared taster (hands down best taster offering Ive ever had...a total of 9-3oz pours for $7.99). Pours hazy yellow. Very hoppy nose and great hoppy taste accentuated with citrus. Tasty combo of citrus, pine, and rye. Yum!

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a gold with white fizzy head. Aroma doesnt have much here, just a little faint citrus. Flavor of a little malt, light citrus, a nasty hop bitter. Mouth feel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, eeeeeegh....not sure why the rating is currently at 87.....

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - SEP 6, 2009
22oz. bottle served in a shaker pint. Poured a hazy gold with a thin white head that quickly dissipated. Some citrusy hops and a little rye spice in the aroma. Also some sweet malt. Pretty good amount of hop bitterness upfront. Not a lot of malt there, I found it a little thin. Drying finish from the hops. Not bad, but nothing special.

Cavie (4586) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Clear light golden pour. Frothy head. A bit of a musty smell. Aged hops also add to the mix. Softer taste upfront with a very dry finish. Bitter hops are left for the drinker to ponder.

On tap at Hopcat. Hoppy beer, lighter in color than I would expect. Not much of a rye edge.

topherh (1927) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Bomber pours golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is piney hop, and malt. Flavor is well balanced between the piney hop and the malty sweetness. Neither takes the bull by the horns so to speak. Fairly middle of the road. I must say not much of a rye character.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Bomber from the Binnys in Willowbrook, IL: This poured a clear golden amber body with a hefty off-white head and provided plenty of lace. The aroma was peppery and spicey with floral and pine notes, all overlaying a light toffee/caramel sweetness. That pretty well describes the flavor, except that the spiciness translated into a steady bitterness throughout the drinking. Dry finish. A dandy brew, created in honor of Sky Dive Inc. in Hastings, Michigan, whose members are undoubtedly enjoying this beer... after the days jumping is done.
