3.06/5  rDev -17.3%

Poured into a Stange.

A: Pale and murky yellow body that has some carbonation and not an insignificant amount of sediment. There is a rocky white head that goes on forever and leaves foamy lacing. It's a little too much. Nothing wrong here, but nothing inviting or appealing either.

S: Very faint. I get a little rye and a little hops. Not much else.

T: I get a little grimace from the flatness of the aftertaste. However, it is a strong taste. Rye, hops and a little citrus. Not bad, but that aftertaste...

M: My favorite part of this beer is the feel. Begins full and well carbonated and ends with a stark dryness. The transition between the two is arresting.

O: A pretty below-average beer that has a good feel and is thankfully not offensive but just bland, making it drinkable and an alright slot filler in a pick-six.

Thanks to NJB145 for this extra that arrived in a recent box, furthering my quest to try every bottled/canned/Nalgened rye around. Today the U.S., tomorrow the world. 12 oz. bottle.

Pour is an even, pale yellow that one can see shadows through, but no detail. Mild carbonation. Nose evokes the breezes of a Brussels dubbel more than a rye: sweet, sugary, with a mild pat of orange-inflected spice. Rye Dubbel? That sounds like a fine idea.

Sky High Rye teases with a unique nose then hands me the Arcadia let-down. The rye up front is bowled over rudely by a linebacker of sharp, pungent, something... hops? I believe it is the hops, gone dank & turning into some kind of medicinal penicillin. Maybe it'll clear up those ear sores? Hard to get past, but there's earthiness, maybe a touch of caramel. Mouthfeel is irrelevant, because I'm struggling to get past the four ounce mark.

Four it is. Arcadia's barrel-aged program (barring the excellent Shipwreck Porter) seems to be OK, but I haven't had a 'regular' beer from them I would care to tongue again. Rye is a terrible thing to waste: drain pour.

Pours a medium golden with a lingering, frothy ivory head.

Aroma is slightly soapy, peppery, and rye spicy.

Flavor reveals floral hops, with a bitter, peppery, finish. The malt backbone is lightly toasted, with sweet hints of caramel.

Though rye spiciness is evident, it doesn't overpower. Very drinkable.
