Great standard rye IPA. Nothing anyone can ever be mad at you about. Great beer. Drinks well when hot or cold out. Not super hop forward, but just enough bite. Very pleasant and a great standard.

A fantastic offering from the Texas Hill Country brewer (there’s a lot of beer in Texas, but not a lot of good beer). The color was a delightful golden brown; the head poured well but didn’t last as long as I would like. Nice aroma but not particularly remarkable. Taste and mouthfeel shine, however. Too many pale ales are thin on the front and rely on monster hops to carry them; this ale, in contrast, has a rich malt flavor followed with an aggressive (but not at all overbearing) hop finish.
Apart from Victory’s offering, I haven’t had a pale ale I enjoyed this much in quite some time. amalgamous99 (7) - USA, California, USA - FEB 10, 2002 does not count
I just plain like this beer. Nicely hoppy which is right up my alley. Medium-ish on the palate, but with plenty of flavor. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2004 sweet malty nose misleading...not the best example of an american IPA, but very peppery spicy...fantastically warming the more you have...go figure...I hate to say this is the only beer that really makes this brewery unique...If you find it buy a sixer or a pint... porterdog (4) - USA - SEP 19, 2005 does not count
Light amber color with a thin white head. Spicy hop and rye flavors really shine in this beer. One of the best local craft brews available in Austin.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 12oz in bordeaux glass. Deep copper with loose yeast. Tangy citrus and mild toast nose. Clean, sharp, dry. Big, balanced hops. Rye twang is neatly astringent. Hop Rod Lite in the very best sense. I want more -- five gallons more!
RERATE: On cask at Gingerman - unbelievably delicate floral and candy hop character. I can’t stop at one pint. SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Pours opaque, hazy amber brown with a rocky, frothy white-than head. Smells sweetish with alcohol notes and faintly of rye. Tastes or rye and bitter from the hops. Not very sweet and almost a little sour, for a bit of surprise, but definitely bitter. Full Moon Pale Rye Ale has a medium body with a good texture, not out of place, and below average carbonation with a lasting bitter finish. This is a good ale, but Real Ale has some other stuff I really wanna try. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2001
A great beer from some young guys in the Texas backwoods. Sweet and rye-y. Very satisfying. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 9, 2005
