Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JoEBoBpr on 12-21-2011

This beer brings together tow of our favorite ingredients; hops and rye - serious hops up front provide a pungent, floral, and citrus character. We use centennial, Columbus, and Cascades in this hop lovers dream. The rye provides a slightly spicy flavor and a full mouth-feel. Divided Sky pours straw in color with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, and pine. Drink fresh!

On-tap, served in a tulip

"Ahhh, divided sky, the wind blows high."

Pours a slightly hazy bright orange with a fluffy bone white cap. Recedes slowly, and leaves little chunks of lace clinging to the glass.

The nose has the overly dry, herbal aroma from the rye, with some juicy, citrus poking through. Clean biscuit malt holding down the back end.

Herbal, rye notes up front mix with pine resin for a dry, earthy intro while juicy tropical fruits emerge nicely mid-palate. Tangerines, mango, papaya, and white grapefruit lend a juicy, flavorful contrast to the dry notes from the rye. The finish is mildly bitter and builds with each sip, which is always the sign of a well-crafted IPA.

The feel is right on point. Medium body, even carbonation. I wouldn't have figured this to be 6.5%, it drinks super easy.

This is well made rye IPA. Super clean, well-crafted. Definitely ranks up near the top of my rye IPA list. Great balance of dry rye and juicy fruits with a sturdy, light malt bill. (995 characters)
