My brother scored me one of these to take home after a ski trip at Wolf Creek years ago.

Pours an amber color, the rye seems to have taken on a deeper srm than your average pale ale. Almost reaches 1/2" off white head. Aroma is more of a malty, woody, affair, hops are definitely in the background for the most part.

Heavy malt flavors, caramel, toffee, almost a brown malt like existence. The rye doesn't offer much in the way of a spicy snap. Just heft and color. Hops again are somewhat of an afterthought. I would definitely recommend this to someone who likes malty ipas. The problem is the hops are there to contribute plenty of bitterness, I would say in the high 60ibu range. Some grapefruit notes to it for sure.

12 oz. Can

Pours a nice yellow color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice small off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, malty, yeasty, with some citrus. The taste is hoppy, malty, citrusy. Medium body, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

Pours a clear golden with a thin off-white head. Smells like fresh bread and a hint of citrus. Taste begins with some hints of mint, spicy rye, then crackers, followed by some grapefruit and pine. Good mouthfeel. Overall a very nice rye beer.

This is just an excellent pale ale. Telluride's best offering in my opinion, and that's saying a lot, with beers like Tempter IPA and Face Down Brown out there. This one has a straw, almost yellow color, and plenty of rye kick and hop character in the smell and taste. Certainly one of the best APA's I've ever tried.

Me rikey arot.

Tasted via a 12 oz can while on a beer trip through CO. Sweet hoppy notes up front give way to characteristic dry rye notes on the flip side.

Can see this being a refreshing option - yeah, rye - after a long run or other sweat inducing activity. Definitely worth a try and another try and another

A thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy, dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pepper, mild hops. Taste is piney hops, peppery, sharp rye at the finish. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall a good, solid beer.
