Ryeball (Rye Pale Ale)
 
This one turned out utterly perfect & I think it's worth sharing. It was rushed to bottles and carbonation was heavy, so it took 7 weeks in the bottle to fully mature. At that point it was sparkling clear, effervescent, refreshing, and had a tasty hop presence but not over-the-top in that department.

Mashed at 150F for 1 hour. Pitched at 62F, let rise to 67F. 7 days in primary, then transferred to secondary & dry hopped for 3 days, then bottled with 4.5 oz dextrose.

No protein rest. Mash was 60 minute single infusion. Serious chill haze early on, apparently went away after several weeks. Those last bottles had sat at room temp for 5 weeks and then in the fridge for 2 weeks. This is what it looked like early on (1 week in bottle, 1 day in fridge):

I like it brewing a slightly modified version of your recipe. Cheers. Thanks again.

That's funny. I have a rye IPA that looks like that last picture there - hazy as hell - AND I FILTERED IT!

Filtering was a bitch. I only did one keg. Took about 2 hours and I had to turn the pressure up to the point were the filter was leaking beer.

If mine gets as clear as your first pics, I'll be a VERY happy camper. Guess I'll put it aside for a few weeks. Thanks for posting that great picture.

Out of respect for the OP, I'll just post a link to another place I've posted it.
