COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The use of 20% Rye in this Pale Ale adds a distinct tartness to the malt profile, while still allowing the aromas of floral hops and tropical fruits to shine through.

Dryish spicy mealy wooden aftertaste with gooseberry tropical fruit notes Nice, drinkable. (0.33l draft at The Rover, Göteborg.)

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de HopDuvel, BB 05/05/2014, batch#RPCC13.01. Ambrée presque cuivrée, col épais et crémeux blanc cassé. Arôme est fruité modéré en tropical, seigle en abondance sans être dans le surfait. Pointe d’agrumes en rétro-nasal. Palais est épais, note de seigle bien distincte. Le tout est complété par un profil houblonné citronné. Je note aussi ce côté levure qui reste présent. Le seigle marque bien sa présence avec un fini qui me rappelle un léger fumé que je trouve fort sympa. Le tout en reste néanmoins assez sec accompagné par un malté pâle, cara. Le houblonnage parvient à balancer le tout et à offrir une belle palette amérisante et fruitée sans pour cela couvrir le profil du seigle.

caesar (4713) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
Bottled, batch RPCC13.01 BB 05.May.2014, large sample. Clear amber color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of rye, flowery, floral, bit citrus, bit soapy, lavender-like, tangerine. Bit sweet in taste, bit bitter, again quite fruity of tangerine. Quite dry it seems and the sweetness seems to come mostly from the fruity notes. The rye is a bit harsh grainy. Ok stuff.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 24, 2014
Very high & stable amberish head over clear copper-orange beer; shards of lace. Fruity C-hops (rosewater, lychee, grapefruit) and a clear hint at ureum, and even just a tad cheesy. Some cardboard, mainly from the head. Piney, resiny hops, outspoken bitter and a bit harsh. Fruitiness all but gone in the mouth. There’s a faint mineral, nearly salty touch. Oilyness in the MF clearly hopresin-related. Medium bodied, rather low carbonation. Resin overload. I wonder where the unnaturally stable head comes from... certainly not from continiously dissolving CO²...

Jur (215) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle @ BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Pour is clear copper, hardly any head. Nose is wet cardboard with wood chip pings. Very hard bitter flavour, liquorice, not much else. Artificial after taste. Yuck...

skortila (4345) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2014
Bottled, 33cl full sample. The aroma has toffee, oranges, some pine. Cloudy, orange-brown coloured beer with a medium, off-white head. The taste is slightly sweet caramelly and becomes more hopbitter towards the finish. Citric backbone. Dry, bit harsh and fruity finish. Good flavours, but balance is a bit off.

rhyshewer (59) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013
Aroma: Piney, floral, orange, caramel. Appearance: Deep amber/red, fairly hazy with a medium off-white head. Taste: Medium sour, citrus, slightly salty with an edge of bitterness. Palate: Light body, slicky texture, medium-strong carbonation. Overall: Borderline IPA taste. Not bad, would have preferred more balance between rye and hop.
