on tap at khyber in philly

Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick crop of white head resting on top. Retains pretty well while leaving some patchy lacing on the glass.

Soft hop bitterness in the nose with some fruit sweetness. A dash of pineapple and bread with some faint buttyness. Rye spice is understated.

A little bitter and hoppy up front with some citrusy notes. Pineapple and orange with some sweet tones and a dash of rye. A bit bready and buttery in the malt backbone. Touches of caramel towards the finish, which is a little bitter.

Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and lingering on the tongue. This is way understated on the rye presence, and the hints of butter don't really help either.

12 oz bottle pours a cloudy medium amber with weak head and lacing. Aroma of toffee, rye, spicey hops, and a hint of peppermint. Taste is bitter (but not particularly flavorful) peppery hops and sharp rye malt. Mouthfeel is thick with pasty and rather unpleasant aftertaste causing a post-sip grimmace with every drink. Don't see any date on the bottle so perhaps this is a little old - not really a fan of this.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy tannish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, some hops. Taste is good, citrus, hops, rye, all mixing well for a flavorful beer. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer worth seeking out.

12 oz. bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance-Muddy golden brown color and somewhat hazy. A bit lighter than I'd expect. Moderate sticky white head with good lacing.

Aroma-Fruity, nutty rye notes, with slight butter caramel, toffee, and hints of raisins and almonds. Herbal, spicy hops dovetail with the zesty, spicy rye notes.

Flavor-Spicy, raisin studded rye bread with walnut and almond overtones and a drizzle of dark caramel. Additional prune and fig dark fruit notes with orange citrus and piney/spicy hop notes. Moderate to moderately high hop bitterness adds a refreshing edge to the flavor. Pepper and caraway meld in the finish, giving the overall impression of a spiced holiday fruit cake. Complex, multi-faceted, and delicious.

Mouthfeel-Medium full, chewy body from Rye, with soft, moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy on the palate.

Easily one of the best rye beers I've ever had. Complex aroma and flavor, fantastic mouthfeel, and just all around fantastic. A beer to be sought out.

NOTE: I just had Sky High Rye again recently and I'm assuming that the bottle I rated was a little bit old because the hops on the bottle I'm having now is much hoppier. Not bad, just different, though I think I like this one a touch better when the hop character is slightly subdued.
