A German, a Belgian and an American walk into a bar. This isn’t a joke, but a modern tale of Rye Ale making—rooted in a rich family legacy. Our brew resembles a German Roggeinbier, but is eccentric enough to skew Belgian with its seven unique malts. Seven! This crisp beer has been crafted with just the right mix of spicy rye, distinctive malt flavor, and hoppiness making it an all-American home run. Let your palate branch out with this winning ale

Great brew on tap at Stanley’s. Taste is slightly bitter but nice rye flavor.

Copper brown color. Little to no aroma. Taste is sweet malt. Tiny bit of rye spice, hardly any hop bitterness. Super watery finish. Meh.

I’m surprised at the nearly irrational invective directed towards this excellent Rye-PA. It is indeed exceptionally foamy, but one can control this and the foam is quite beautiful and aromatic. I find the rye taste and fragrance to be quite pleasant. Though different from Founders Red’s Rye-PA and the local Twin Cities taproom’s 612 Rated-R, this is one of my favorite rye-flavored IPA’s. Viva la différence!

Bottle. Really not very good. Carbonated beyond belief, some off flavors...i dunno, the rye did nothing for me on this.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with big gushing head. I gave up on drinking this out of a glass because it was so carbonated. Straw, grainy, earthy aromas. Vegetal, grainy, slightly tangy flavors. Not a fan.

Nuffield (4083) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2013
My initial thought that this was good--and at first, I thought I sensed possible passion fruit notes. But with a bigger sip, and every subsequent sip, this was pretty awful. Vegetal, bitter, ack. Huge head--very big head. Bottle.

Smells is slightly hoppy, belgiany, as well as rye character. Tastes spicy with a rye tasting finish. Plenty of hops and bitterness as well.

Bottle pour - belgian notes abound here with this drinkable crisp brew that is slightly above average.

bookman10 (962) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours an amber-orange with mid-sized head. Aroma is pretty run-of-the-mill, dominated by malt and grain. Flavor is quite spicy, almost pepper-like (reminds me of Furthermore’s Knotstock), with some hoppiness in reserve. Finish is rather bitter. Interesting but not my favorite.

Nsanders (1015) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Straw colored with a thin white head that blankets the sides of the glass. Aroma is floral hops, slight rye and pepper, but more wet hay and cereal. Flavor is mildly bitter, mostly watery. Body is light and easy drinking. Wanted more rye flavor. More of a summer beer.
