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.

My first time down to Atlanta, I was lucky enough to try this is both bottles and on tap. Apparently if you order a beer at a bar in Atlanta without specifying draught or bottled, they automatically will give you the bottled stuff.

The Bottled: Didn’t give me a glass so cannot comment on color or head. Difficult to smell the true aroma. It had a nice palate and was quite refreshing. Tasted the hops and malt but nothing really too interesting. It didn’t really stand out to me.

On Tap: Pours a nice caramel color with a quickly dissapating head with a slight lacing on top. You really taste the fresh malt and hops in this one. The rye flavors also really pulled through without being too overwhelming. Slightly dry fragrantly hoppy finish. Nice sweet fresh aroma and the beer is also nicely balanced.

This ended up being my favorite local beer during my trip. Make sure you get it on tap. The bottled version does not do it justice.

Bottle @ Brewhouse Cafe, Atlanta. Dark golden with a thin head. Crisp and hoppy over any stated rye, but there is a hint of gritty malts in this respect. All still very drinkable.

Hopmaestro (1654) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2016
From can: Aroma is malty and slight dusty. Weak floral notes and rye bread. Taste is better than aroma. Slightly sweet malts that is followed by soft hops and quite raw bitterness. In the end rather weak overall.
