L: Hazy golden orange with some floaties. The head is huge, rocky, and creamy. Retention is excellent, and lacing is left in sheets.

S: Ripe mango, cantaloupe, papaya, pineapple, apricot. Very juicy and sweet with ripe fruits. The malt backbone is biscuity and lightly toasty.

T: Juicy, ripe tropical fruit. Tons of mango, papaya, apricot, yellow peach, cantaloupe, tangerine, and pineapple. The malt backbone is light biscuity and toasty, a solid backdrop that is well-balanced but not sweet. Near the finish you get just a tingle of black pepper and coriander notes from the rye. Finishes well-balanced, just a light kiss of orange and lemon peel, and is slightly dry.

F: Medium bodied, smooth and soft, moderately carbonated, flows well.

O: A fantastic and delicious rye pale, juicy and fruity and very dynamic with the use of rye. Highly recommended!

Picked up a single at the Hilton Head Island Whole Foods for $2.49. Canned on 5-22-17.

Beer poured golden with a decent white head. Yeast is floating.

Nose, before the light of day struck the beer, was citrus forward. Oxidation within one minute after pouring.

Taste is light pale malt body that accentuates the Citra hop profile. Beer is citrusy with a nice pine bite.

Feel is light bodied and refreshing.

Overall this is a nice take on the APA style. Definitely sessionable and worthy of a re-purchase if we are ever in the region in the future!

Poured from a can dated 4/13/17. The beer pours a hazy amber color with a thick, two-finger, off-white head.

The smell is tropical hops with a bit of malt in the background.

The taste highlights the rye flavor strongly. There is also a little tropical hop flavor.

The mouthfeel is smooth and thick.

Overall this is decent, but I'm not a huge fan of rye beers. Still a nice, balanced ale.

My neighborhood pool was having a Low Country Boil, and based on the label alone, I figured it would be a good pool beer to go along with my seafood. And it did. There was nothing terrible about this beer but nothing quite memorable either. It just went really well with my food, and that's good enough for me. A solid, easy drinking beer. I look forward to trying the Two Claw Pale Ale at some point though.
