COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We Consider this an extreme version of an American Pale Ale. It has a very up front floral and citrus aroma from a late cascade addition and dry hopping with Amarillo. This beer also has a big malt background to balance the bitterness of the hops. The rye malt cleans up your palette after you swallow so the hop flavor does not stick in your mouth too long.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 Bottle (12oz). Hazy amber-gold with a smallish foamy white head. Somewhat muted APA aroma of citrus and light resin hops, decent light roast malt, tangerines, and rye. Nice, if mild, citrus juice and rye malt flavour, not very hoppy at all, pleasant. Slightly watery mouthfeel, acidic, nicely carbonated, quick off the tongue - a really nice session APA, I could have drunk the whole six-pack.

Pours orange with a off white head. Aroma is glorious. Floral and citrus notes. Orange, lemon, and some rye malts. Sweet orange peel and rye. Ohhhhhhh yeah! Flavor is sweet fruits, and mild hops. Very fruity and lovely hops. This beer is just great.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2006
UPDATED: APR 19, 2008 Bottle. Pours a clear golden with an orangish hue and white head. Clean citrus aroma. Initial flavor is sweet with a notes of orange, mango and apricot. As it goes toward the back of the mouth, the bitterness and amarillo flavor kicks in, finished by rye and honey, with some dryness. Not usually a fan of the dry hopped amarillo, but it works here. My new "grocery store" go to beer. Even better fresh

Thanks to jimbowood for this one. Orange coloured brew with a thin head. Fresh cascadey aroma, orange and tropical fruit flavours as well. Fairly clean maltiness, sweet pale malt and a bit of breadiness. Mostly hops though with a fragrant fresh hop bouquet. Flavour is very tasty. Tropical hops, orange and papaya. Sweet but not sugary. I wouldnt pull any rye character out of this if I wasnt looking for it, but its got loads of great hop flavour. Well-balanced, moderate bitterness. Great APA.

Thanks again to Redlight. Cascading with hop aroma and a burst of hop flavor thats all-too-soon gone. Very dry. Not much of a rye flavor, which I was expecting and looking forward to. Definitely a good drinking beer and something Id pick up..if I could.

Aroma: Lovely floral and slightly citrusy Appearance: Shiny clear and copper with a nice white head Flavor: Very tasty balance of malts and some graininess hop flavors show up as the beer warms up. Palate: Light to medium bodied and a clean dry finish Overall: I really liked the beer, except for a little graininess I could not pick up the Rye in this pale ale... as a pale ale and a rye pale ale very drinkable .. wish the rye character showed through a little more... that is why I rated it a little low overall

Really should be categorized as a Rye Pale Ale, rather than an American PA, even though was judged as PA at GABF. Anyway, I think the on-tap version has a better mouthfeel and a much more pronounced rye taste and smell than the bottled version. This is one of our favorite every day beers as my wife and I both love hoppy beers. Definite grapefruit and pine smell. Pours a gold/pale amber with an off-white head. Minimal lacing.

Terminus (3634) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2006
bottle-thanks to aracauna for the bottle-hazzy apricot with vigerous carbonation which may suggest that this beer was somewhat old and oxidized. passionfruit notes first hits the aroma followed by flowery hops, light grapefruit, lemon, oranges, mangos. flavors are somewhat muddled. thin and watery palate which really makes the beer suffer in the overall enjoyment. I think i would seek out a fresh bottle if i was down south somewhere for shure.

I live in Athens where this is brewed, and $2 pints of are everywhere. I have to say, it is soo much better than in the bottle. Overall, pretty good!

Pours a cloudy light amber color. Aroma has hops and citrus with a slight tart. Lots of hops at first but the rye develops aferwards with slightly bitter and earthy flavors. Enjoyable beer - would like to try it on draft.
