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.

Bomber bottle poured to a Czech pils glass a hazy, orange/amber hue with a foamy, off white head and tight, lasting ribbons of lacing. The nose was mellow malt, citrus, orange and lemon zest, and a touch of pine. The flavor added distinct dryness and appropriate hop bitterness. The body was medium and the mouthfeel was clean.

22oz bottle split with BeerGestapo. Poured a lightly hazed amber with a small head. The nose was citrus and toffee. Tastes of grapefruit, caramel, and bread with a little bit of rye spiciness in the finish. Smooth but very noticeable bitterness, this was more of an IPA than a roggen.
