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.

shrubber85 (11266) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Bottle. Extremely strong aroma - peach, orange, apple. malt, and hops. Hazy amber color with small head. Sweet fruity flavor up front - orange/apple with a moderate hoppy finish. Well-blended with neither the fruit or hops coming out too strong. Very nice.

maltdog (622) - Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Bottle. Almost-clear pale orange; dense head has a short half-life. Sparse cobwebby lace. Signature Amarillo nose of succulent pineapple, orange, sauvignon blanc, white cherry, and bubblegum wrapper. A strong raspberry component emerges as the beer warms. Spicy, crackery flavor augmented by a dash of caramel. Unmistakeable citric Cascade taste. The hop varietals are excetionally well-showcased... I actually identified them before reading the commercial description above. Pretty geeky, huh? A pleasant touch of oily slickness contributes to the fullish mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste is grassy, lemon peppery, and cleanly bitter; rye is more evident after the swallow. Excellent beer with perfect balance.

Copper Coloring ith White Frothy Head. Rye and Hops on the Nose and Tongue. Pretty Simple and Straightforward but in This Case, a Good Thing.

badgerben (5058) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Copper color with a thin head. Slightly bitter hops in the aroma without being very floral or citrusy. The rye didnt stand out at all in the flavor, but the dry hops were very nicely done. Not overpowering, not crazy in any fashion. Just nice, dry, bitter, hops.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Golden color out of the bottle with a fizzy white head and a hoppy nose with lemons in it. Dark caramel sweetness with a rye grain flavor and a strong hop/lemon citrus finish. Nice beer.

Aurelius (5250) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Very disappointed in this beer. Ive been looking forward to this for some time, but it came off tasting like a chemistry experiment gone awry. Color was light hazy orange-gold. The aroma was very appealing -- fruity and yeasty. The actual beer flavor was where this blew the shift - phenols were too prominent, diacetyls were strong, apricots were the best part. The body came off as medium-heavy - not what I expect out of a rye. On tap at 5 Seasons, maybe Ill give it another shot in the bottle.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2005
This beer offers a hearty aroma of hops. It is a golden-orange in color with a good sized head. It enters the mouth smoothly and produces a mildly bitter citric taste.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Dark yellow with some haze. Whisp of a head. Mild aroma of honey and hops. Clean, somewhat sweet malty flavor with a nice, lightly resinous hop character displaying citrus and spice. Decent body. Well balanced bitterness. Easy drinking ale.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2005
Floral, grassy, herbal and orange-grapefruit citrus hops in the aroma. Clear golden body with a thin white head that recedes to ring. Toasted malt flavours are joined by earthy, floral, citrus hops and moderate bitterness. Medium body is quite dry in the mouth with decent carbonation that engages the tongue. Sampled at GABF 2005.
