The Ripstop Rye Pils is our reinterpretation of the classic pilsner lager beer: aromas of European malt and noble-type hops mingle with a dignified, refreshing, and clean malt character that is further distinguished with a generous addition of spicy rye malt, creating a beer that is at once malty, zesty, crisp, hoppy, and incredibly drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Hazy pale, nice rye character, the bitterness is continental and soft and it balances well with the rye.

"Can" from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy/translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly rye spicy. Med body or better. Flavor is rye/bready with spice. Itís bready/malty in a very different way. Pretty tasty/drinkable.

3fourths (8338) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Pours filtered gold with a tall and lasting white head. Quiet nose of floral lemon oil and pith with a light grain / biscuit quality and a light touch of musty / funky starches (potatoes, rye, that sort of thing). Very creamy carbonation with smooth malt, very enjoyable first taste, before it turns overly-bitter. Lots of lemon oil and pith, some enjoyably tart and almost-sourish pilsner malt. Overall an interesting beer, but not interesting because of the rye addition (which isnít necessary at all), but because it has a lot of active German hop lemon aromatics and a pleasantly clean body. Itís over-hopped for its body and dryness but thatís pretty typical for American breweries doing German styles.

On tap at Base Camp, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out some feint rye, though itís all pretty subtle and distant. Flavour brings out rye, herbal notes and some crusty bready notes. Well-constructed, with a rye quality all throughout. Very nice pils.

Funky "canottle", brought back and shared by Grippitis. Deep golden hue rocky off white head. Slightly skunky aroma, husky grainy profile, some caramel, but no real rye character for me. Just okay.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A spicy fruity nose. Awesome beer: flavorful, robust spicy hoppy flavors with rye malts, a good palate. Very fresh and tasty.

22 alumibottle. Whether you like this beer depends entirely on whether you can enjoy the commingled earthinesses of rye and grassy pilsner malt. Neither is super earthy on their ownses, but together they make a nice big pile of dirt. Pours a very slightly hazy bronzed medium amber with a dense and creamy light tan head that goes quickly away. Earthy rye husks and mild pepperiness combined with wet grass on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb, plenty of earthy grass and grain husk together on the mid palate. Long tangy finish. Kinda nice, but, then, I love me some rye and some pilsner, so there it is.

Alumabottle:   Hazy straw, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Zesty grassy nose, rye, some very light citrus and spicy notes.   Smooth, grassy, a little dry and ashy.   Not as citrusy and spicy as the nose suggests, but clean.   Decent amount of sweetness to balance the normal grassiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Not too sharp, but its clean, lots of body, and a little different from the rest in that its sweeter with a soft rye flair.   This was pretty damn tasty!   Also gets a little barnish, musty, and rustic on ya too.   Winner!

" A crisp, clean pilsner that has a subtle and understated rye presence. If your going to bother, Iíd have liked the rye to be a little more prominent, but the beer otherwise was ok with Bo obvious flaws. Refreshing brew."
