Received this as an extra from Thagr81us; thanks Calton. 22 oz. bottle from 04/05/12, poured into my Bell's tulip.
a - Pours a hazy bright orange color with two fingers plus of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Head lasts for several minutes and leaves nice lacing on the glass.
s - Smells of citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, light rye, pale malts, and bready malts. Nice orange and rye mix, I like the nose quite a bit.
t - Tastes of fruity malts, caramel malts, bready malts, light citrus, and rye. More rye then the nose but less citrus and orange. A step down for me.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall a pretty nice rye ber. As it warmed up more rye came out in the taste, but I thought the nose was much better with a bunch of citrus hops and oranges. Worth checking out, especially if you like rye beers.

A: Poured from a 32 oz. growler to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a hazy texture. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Good lacing.
S: A sweet aroma - mostly light fruit - and some hops and rye as well.
T: Tasted of hops (not an overwhelming amount), citrus (orange, lemon), some malt, and the rye in the finish. A pretty well-balanced, sweet flavor.
M: A good amount of carbonation with a dry, smooth finish. Light-bodied.
O: An easy drinking beer that's a well made brew. Very drinkable.

I think that Westbrook has really stepped up their game from when they first started, and I'm glad that they have. It really helps strengthen the fairly young and still growing, Charleston beer scene.
I'm not really versed in Rye Pale Ales, but I thought this was a good offering. When first poured, it had a nice thick, creamy head, that disappeared after a few minutes, leaving a scant lacing behind. Color was a hazy straw, almost hefe-like. The smell was very citrusy, oranges, lemons, some lime, but also had a slight rye bread smell as well. The taste was more of a good balance, between the citrusy hops and the rye, neither was too overbearing. Overall another solid offering from Westbrook.
