BEER INFO

Brewed by:
BarrelHouse Brewing Company
California, United States
barrelhousebrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
What makes our Rye Style Pale Ale memorable is it’s incredibly unique aroma. It delivers citrus, apricot, mango, ginger, and lemongrass, created from our one-of-kind blend of Sorachi Ace, Centennial, Cascade, and Chinook, followed with a beautiful balance of bitterness and malt character. We brewed long and hard to deliver something special among a sea of mediocre pales.

Sometimes called simply "Pale Ale".

On tap at the brewery – Paso Robles, CA
4oz taster – 08/18/2014

A: Pale Ryder shows off a lovely butterscotch hue with some partial hop haze across the body. A thin layer of khaki cream settles down to a swirl with some beaded stick that stays behind after every sip.

S: A fruity hop bouquet of sweet mangoes, peach, kiwi and lemon-lime emits from the glass. Underneath lies some peppery Rye spices and a touch of bready cracker. This is another nice exhibit of hop aromas from BarrelHouse. Really enjoying the uniqueness of this one with some of that Rye making its way through.

T: Punchy with fruit hops kiwi, mango, and lemon-lime stand out. Some nice floral like ness to it as well. Malt is Rye induced peppered cracker and sits backseat to that Good touch of puckering bitterness and no alcohol coming through in the flavor. Lightly resinous. Another great hoppy brew from these guys.

M: Light to moderately light body with a nice resinous pucker that drives into a dry and crisp finish. Pretty clean overall with some nice lingering hops.

D: Pale Ryder offers some unique hop flavors and it all seems to work really well with that touch of peppery Rye malt. Would gladly have this one again as well. In fact I grabbed a few bottles on my way out. Great visit all around and a real nice hang this place is.

Appearance: A medium copper color, very clear. Nice lacing and retention.

Nose: Hops, lemongrass, and some floral notes.

Taste: A bit of citrus and hop intensity at first. Malt is very well balanced. Not thin, very well balanced.

Notes: One of the best pale ales I've ever had.

Right off the bat you will catch a plethora of fruity hoppy aromas drawing your senses into the center of Flavortown ! This is my favorite BH Brew so far out of the 5 flagship brews offered.

The most difficult thing about most pale ale's to master in my opinion is balance. This brew has the perfect balance of malt and hops that produce an amazing mouth feel and finish.

OUTSTANDING
