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.

Medium hazy glowing golden with a nice lively head that settles slow. Smells of grains and wet dough. Smooth malted grain great body with little peaks of spicy rye that appear but does not affect how smooth it goes down.

Beerdrinker79 (2034) - Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2014
22 oz aluminum bottle- Pours hazy golden with a one finger head that reduces leaving a blanket and thick layered lace. Aroma is spicy rye, crisp and clean, some citrus. Taste is sweet and light malt, mellow rye that becomes more noticeable in the finish, citrus and very refreshing. Best Base Camp I’ve had so far.

It’s good, but not great. The rye gives it a bit of fruitiness that doesn’t help the style. Faulty premise, I think.

Reid (2319) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2013
22 oz aluminum bottle..very nice packaging. From Fred Meyer in N.Salem . $5.49 Pours a nice glowing golden colour with a large and frothy white head. Nice noble pils aromas on this one along with crackery malts..there is a slight spiciness from the rye. Taste is similar to the aroma with the rye oming more to the fore after a few sips..very nice. Good palate..nice and on style. I liked this beer a lot, one of the best lagers from Oregon

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

On draught at Base Camp. Balanced pilsner with a kick from the rye. Malty and biscuity with a pleasing little hop kick at the end.

On tap at Belmont station. Colour...hazy gold with a foamy white head. Nose...floral and hoppy with spice and biscuits. Palate...nicely frothy with classic pils flavours and a fabulous bitterness all around the palate. The spiciness of the rye really comes through on the finish and the bitterness helps accentuate the rye. Nice take on the pilsener style!

Gription79 (2830) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Poured from a 22 ounce aluminum bottle. Great packaging.
Aroma:slight sulfur character from the yeast, musty/earthy, malty/bready, some fruity/spicy hop character
Appearance: Golden straw in color with a long lasting bright white head
Taste: big bready malt character, fruity hops, honey, slight spicy note
Palate: medium bodied, thicker than your traditional pilsner, clean lager fermentation, the rye adds a touch of an oily character
Overall: I found this to be a tasty session lager, i enjoy the rye character though out this beer, malty, hoppy,delicious.
