A: Golden, light orange color. Thin one finger head that disappears pretty quickly. Carbonation is minimal.

S: Predominantly lemon and orange as well as zest, and grassy aromas. A little black pepper from the rye.

T: Lemon citrus and some grapefruit, then a sweet malt backbone. Finishes with some peppery spice, tartness like from a lemon or orange peel and grass.

M: Overall light in body, fairly creamy, and some mild bitterness.

O: A refreshing beer, great for a post-hike cool down. Earthiness, spice, and lighter body paris great with Indian food!

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a smallish white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready malts and spicy rye with some dank hops.

The flavor is a little sweet bready malt with rye followed by a big, slightly harsh, resiny bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a very nice rye pale, better than most rye hoppy beers I've had. Tons of bitterness that's slightly harsh.

A hearty light auburn and dark gold appearance, looks more substantial in terms of a malt bill than most pale ales. Soft off white head, 3/4" deep.

Aroma was lacking in the hop quality, a little rye effervesence occurred.

Taste was muted, it was a decent beer, but it didn't have any oomph. Some bitterness, but little in the way of flavor development beyond that. A little bit of that weird rye and barley flavor. Some minimal woodsiness envelopes the palate as the beer gets warmer. Not pulling anything in terms of citrus or pine out of the flavors. English malt flavors, this is actually coming off very English absent the rye addition. Rye just seems to overshadow everything else that is supposed to be here.

I dunno if they date their cans, but this one just didn't have anything going for it aside from the malt. I'll drink a stout or porter if I want something this malt forward. I could tell it was hopped, the bitterness was apparent, but the flavor was just muddled and didn't go anywhere beyond the rye and the barley maltiness.

Pours a small off white head with a nice long lasting lacing above a clear warm golden colored beer.

Light citrus lemony with light floral and pine aspects on this west coasty hops aroma.

Nice citrus bite with hints of lemon, floral, earthy pine taste with a very slight almost yeasty hint.

A dryish aftertaste with some of the citrus hops sticking around on this medium bodied beer.

A pretty good tasting pale, I recommend giving it a try.

12 oz can served cold into a pint glass.

Bridal Veil is a pale golden yellow color with a slight haze. Great lacing left behind.

Aroma is fresh and hoppy with pleasant citrus tones.

Flavor could also be described the same way but with added peppery spice from the rye malts.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Good balance for an IPA.

Overall a very enjoyable rye IPA.

Pours a nice dark amber with a thin white head that settles to a patchy haze. Aromas of rye malt, caramel, and citrusy hops. Pretty nice so far. More rye and moderately sweet caramel malt, along with some grapefruit and resin hops. Very drinkable and quenching, with a medium mouthfeel and solid carbonation. Enjoyable brew, very drinkable.

I am currently in Denver, touching base, but not much more, with The Old Lady aka Ma Petite Abeille and the preponderance of CANned craft beer is astounding! It is enough to send The CANQuest (TM) into overdrive, but the problem is a lack of singles and I CANnot lug that many beers around, so a CANundrum arose. Fortunately, I am an old school pen & ink type of guy and if I CAN drink and review it at the bar, then so be it, geekery be damned!

Fresh Craft on Blake Street became my source for three such CANs, so this is transcribed from notes dtd Tuesday, 30 July 2013.

From the CAN: "Brewed High - 8750'"; "Brewed woith a generous amount of German rye malt an abundance of Ameri[CAN] hops, our ale embodies an earthy flvor and finishes with a hint of spice. This powerhouse of an ale excites even the most dormant of taste buds. Cheers, Chris Fish, Brewmaster/Co-Owner"; "Snow Melt, Malted Barley and Rye, Ameri[CAN] Hops, Yeast".

My server made the initial pour, so I was only a party to the Crack & Glug, rathe than being directly involved. It arrived with a finger of bone-white head with decent retention. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Croesus, Midas and Mammon were all back in my kitchen, so I had this beer all to myself. Nose was both hoppy and spicy, grapefruit and pepper. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was really reminiscent of an AIPA with a great bitterness on the tongue. The finish evinced the black pepper of the rye, giving it a cool, almost minty, finish. Wow! The finish was very dry and since I still had a half of a CAN left, I went with an aggro pour to really release the esters and now the pepper took on a prevalence not initially experienced. Great stuff!
