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.

Sour rye and bitter hops, yet not over the top. Clean, dry finish. Not sweet at all. Quite refreshing to have an pale ale that isnt centered around grapefruit notes. Still, no more than a good, average, drinkable beer.

.Bottle from Beeryum, Poured golden amber, with a tight, fizzy head. Aroma of sweet sappy hops. Sticky like spruce. WOW! This is a very nice Rye P A. There is cascade hops, but they are not up front and in your face, only complimentary, ( do not love them). Crisp, clean, and sweet and bread. This would be Great in summer, when even a stout lover would pass on the heavy stuff in 90 degree weather. Try this

bottle from goldtwins. interest smell of malt, cascade hops, some spicy rye. loads of pale malts and some hops, but the rye makes a dry finish. not hoppy like a full-blown APA but this is a good beer that bends the style guidelines.

Got this one on a trade via mail. Pretty damn good pale ale. I wish I could buy this on Long Island. It has just a hint of rye flavor.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
nice orange colour with a lacy white head. big floral and citrusy(lemongrass?) hop aroma with some toasty, bready malts. the flavour seems a it more subdued than the aroma and there was only a faint hint of rye in the finish. over all still a tasty pale ale.

Good grassy aroma with just enough sweet maltiness to balance it out. My overall impression of the flavor was good, kind of reminded me of a slightly different hoppy monster, but on the whole good. Started sweet and moved into a more citrusy, hoppy flavor lasted to the finish. Texture was as one person described it "buttery". Good brew.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 sweet lively citrusy aroma. taste is equally as lively as the scent. taste is citrus similar to a mandarin orange. sparkles on the tongue goes down very refreshing. unique.

First. I must apologize to this beer- I drank you in one of the worst beer bars I have ever experienced: Taco Mac. Perhaps if I had had you in a more respectable establishment, you would have tasted better.But I ad serious questions regarding the cleanliness of the glass and the waiter pissed me off. I will try you again soon, I promise.
