3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
