Rye Guy is a West Coast style IPA that uses a ton of rye malt as part of the all-Canadian grain bill. American hops give it distinctive citrus and pine notes. The result is a crisp, full-bodied beer that is surprisingly sessionable for 52 IBUs.

Un beau visuel doré penchant sur l'orangé remplit le verre en compagnie d'une mousse épaisse et compacte. Des vagues poivrées jouent avec des parfums enivrants d'agrumes pour former un bouquet très invitant. La texture est moelleuse en bouche et le seigle est fusionnel avec les saveurs fruitées et la délicate amertume. Magnifique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Un peu trop timide au nez, les notes sont toutefois intrigeantes... Le seigle à l’oeuvre, probablement! Le liquide est très joli, d’une doré assuré, et la petit mousse se veut prèsque crémeuse. En bouche, c’est agréable, le seigle est ici aussi présent, mais il manque le punch auquel je m’attendais. C’est un tantinet trop mince à mon goût, seule la mousse semble avoir une consistance respectable. Cela dit l’amertûme est bien dosée et l’alcool est, encore une fois pour BTP, merveilleusement bien caché.

Pours a medium lasting foamy head atop a cloudy orange body. Nose of rye and hops. Very bitter, good rye flavour. Nicely balanced. Another great beer.

473 mL can. Beautiful orange-copper colour, beautiful white head, beautiful pour. Mild, soft, sweet citrus in the nose, with a hint of rye spice underneath. The rye is a little muted in the flavour as well, but it’s there. Not to the extent I’d like, though, It’s more of an aftertaste. The bitterness is more APA than IPA, but that makes the beer frighteningly sessionable.

Franckg (1226) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2016
Canette sans date achetée il y a 2 semaines. Robe dorée avec un mince col de mousse qui laisse une petite dentelle collante. Arômes d’agrumes, malt légèrement caramélisé, petite résine de pin, poivre moulu. En bouche, beaucoup d’agrumes (pamplemousse, ananas, citron, orange), malt de seigle poivré, conifère. Finale plutôt sèche dominée par du zeste de pamplemousse et du poivre. Texture huileuse et corps mince. Bière de seigle bien construite ou les houblons sont très bien intégrés.

4 days old growler. Thanks Guillaume for buying. Aroma: citrusy with some lemon, a tad piney and of course some rye. App: a tad hazy pale yellow with little head, little lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, fluffy, light bitter almost astringent dry finish. Overall: not too sure I really like the finish off this one. Almost unpleasant finish.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2015
Pours a hazy copperish amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of spicy rye malts, floral hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, passionfruit, guava and some sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit hops, spicy rye malts, light pine and tropical hop flavors on the finish with a smooth balanced bitterness throughout along with the rye spiciness. Best rye ipa I’ve had to date.

Plenty of pine on the nose with some citrus notes. Tastes of pine, orange peel and rye spiciness. Sweet bitter finish but overall light in body. Tasty

Growler. Pours pale gold with a thick head of white foam that laces nice. Aromas of gently spicy rye, toasty grain, big citrus zest, pine and some minor perfumey, floral tones. Bone dry, verging on thin, with a lasting bitter backbone. Moderate to full bodied with average carbonation. Leaves me wanting something a little more, but I can’t pinpoint what.
