COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is brewed with a variety of specialty hops that are hard to find with today’s shortages, including the evasive Simcoe. This beer is clean, brisk and lighter than some with just the right amount of residual hops. The rye adds a spicyness to its malt flavor. Awesome!

Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Nearly clear medium yellow color. Two fingers of foamy white head. Retention is about average and a few wisps of lacing are left. 3.5 S: Spicy earthy rye. Floral and citrusy hops with an emphasis on orange and grapefruit. Touch of caramel maltiness with a strong yeasty breadiness. 3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Spicy earthy rye. Floral and citrus hops per above. Moderate bitterness. Lots of yeasty bread. 3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Moderately creamy and chewy. 3.25 D: Decent beer overall. No real problems, but doesn’t stand out either. ★ 621 characters DavoleBomb, Jun 18, 2015

November 13th, 2013 - I’m seeing Rye IPAs here and there, and I like what they do. The rusty, dry touch hugs the hop bitterness well, but balance is still key. That means quality varies. Belching Beaver’s interpretation of the style, however, is quite lovely. The aroma is traditionally hoppy, but circled by fruity scents like sweet, ripe pineapple, orange, and flowers. The flavor is similarly on the sweeter side. Meanwhile, the palate is smooth, almost flat, delivering a slow, serpentine brew. The touch of rye doesn’t manifest as rye, though it might be playing with the other flavors in subtler ways. Even so, this is a lovely drink, even though the unctuous mouthfeel is, at first, somewhat unexpected.
