I have only recently discovered Arcadia Ales brews and so far… I’m enjoying them. All of the styles that I’ve tried are solid and proper, so I’m expecting the same from this one.
Here’s a nice description about this brew from the website, arcadiaales.com.
In honor of our adventurous friends at Sky Dive Inc. in Hastings, Michigan, we crafted a truly adventurous brew in Sky High Rye. A West Coast-style Pale Ale with rye malt, Sky High Rye boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops. The hops contribute flavor notes of lemons, peaches, and pine needles, combined with the sweet, malty flavors of toffee and bread. Rye adds a pleasant peppery, spicy note like a fresh slice of pumpernickel bread. Very well-rounded and very drinkable, Sky High Rye will surely inspire adventure in all who taste it.
Let’s raise a glass.
This drink came in a 12 oz. bottle and had an ABV of 6.0%.
I thought this beer was pretty good. Easily drinkable with enough character and hoppiness to warrant a try for even the most experienced “hop head.” It’s not over the top, although it has enough “punch” and “bite” to grab your attention. It added a nice twist to the Pale Ale style. I liked it. Give it a shot if you see it. I don’t think that you will be disappointed.
Have any of you guys had any of the beers produced by Arcadia Ales? What did you think of them?
As always, thanks for reading. I appreciate it.
