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.

Look for the new label. Pouring a golden color edging into orangeness with a light white head and light lacing to match, this is one big mouthful of pepper and peach. It’s rich, it’s bright, it’s happily carbonated, it’s got some citrus in it from those grapefruity hops, and nicely dry on the palate thanks to all that rye-ey goodness.

22 ounce bottle in pint glass. Golden with lasting head and lace. Fresh hoppy sweet citrus aroma. Mildly sweet spicy with nicely understated pear melon fruit. Spicy rye hoppy finish. NIcely complex. Delicious. OKay, so why is this a "specialty grain" beer, but Hop Rod Rye is a DIPA? Anyhow this beer is a delicious IPA with an added rye spicy complexity. Excellent.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange-light brown color with a small white head. The aroma is full of hops and citrus. The taste is full on citrus, hops and rye. An excellent rye beer.
