Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BrewTasting on 04-28-2013

To create a bready malt backbone with a dry finish, we start this award winning pale ale with 2-row, Vienna, and Rye malts. This accentuates the Centennial and Citra hops added during the boil. The combination leaves you with enticing aromas of lychee, gooseberry, and passion-fruit. Our Citra Rye Pale Ale is balanced, crisp, and leaves your palate begging for more.

Cool beer. Light and dry with the rye spice kicking up in the finish. The Citra shines early with a floral nose and melon and berries rolling into the citrus of the flavor. Very drinkable. I'd have another.

This thang, yeah... how about that? Kind of like when this one hottie said that Raul looked like Emile Hersche - yeah, I'll take it. I may not really be close in looks to said "heartthrob," but, ya know... Citra Rye by Joseph James on the other hand reminds Raul of Pliny. More like Pliny-lite, but it's good territory to be in.

Bitter, a bit crisp, clean like a Sunday wash...

Raul approved.

Very dry pale ale backed by nice refreshing citra hops. Really packs more flavor and bold taste than most light ales and the rye makes a difference. I also like how the beer comes in a can and can be taken on explorations with me in Colorado. Looking forward to drinking more during Spring time.
