Tasting Notes: Spicey rye notes and floral hop flavors come together real nicely in this.
Very simple recipe, but it's extremely drinkable and if you like pale ales this is hard to put down.
The rye gives this beer a nice creamy mouth feel along with a dense white head. Dry hopping is key in this beer as it really bursts out the floral aromas to compliment the spicy rye elements.

28g Cascade - 30 min

I did not use a secondary for this. Primary fermentation was 67 for 10 days, then left at room temp (70-74) for the remainder of 4 weeks. Kegged, added dry hops and put on tap.
