Rye Pale Ale 2020

I brewed two batches of this recipe, one for Cameron and one for myself.

My one came out pretty good but not quite as good as the one I did for Cam if memory of my tasting of it serves me well. I definitely can get the hint of ‘coconut’ from the Sabro hops and it doesn’t really rock my boat so I’m not sold on Sabro. But it was a decent APA style beer none-the-less.

Tasting notes

A good solid pale ale with a moderately decent amount of hoppiness. I can pick up that coconutty hint from the Sabro hops - not really into it though, at least not in this beer but it's not a big detractor.
