Arcadia Sky High Rye

Arcadia is a tough brewery for me. They make beers in styles that I like, but I haven't been impressed by anything I've had by them but I still keep buying their stuff. I'm weird like that, I guess. Sky High Rye is a rye beer as expected by the name.
Lemony nose with some light rye spiciness. Nice for a rye beer. Body started with a little sweet caramel followed by some melon like fruitiness and a little citrus. There was some slight breadiness before it finished with some bitterness to clean things up. Well, there's a first time for everything and I actually enjoyed this one even with it being a number of months old. Very solid rye beer and tasty. Probably even better fresh, too.

We'll see if Arcadia can keep up this streak when I try their Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout tonight. I have high hopes considering they spent time waxing a 12oz bottle. Who would do that if the beer wasn't awesome, right? Right?


  1. I've not had any Arcadia beers, but I do have me one of them BA Stouts as well as a BA Cereal Killer Barleywine. Looking forward to both!

  2. I'll talk about it tomorrow but I'll say the stout was pretty good.
