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.

Great citrus punch from the hops with a great subtle spiciness I love from the rye. Lots of candied citrus peel, semi sweet malts, and spicy rye. A great beer.

[5901-20131006] Growler. Herbal grainy aroma. Slightly hazy, light brown body with a quick foamy white head. Grainy herbal hops continues in the flavour. Medium body. Good, easy to drink. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5
Overheard: "Logistically, you make a lot of sense."

Un cruchon avec Simon. Merci! Cuivrée est la robe. Belle mousse et dentelle assez fine mais bien présente. Le nez est granuleux, fruité par ses houblons, aromatisé par le seigle, doux avec ses notes caramélisés et piqué par des aiguilles de pin. Le goût est l’affaire des houblons et du seigle. Les saveurs d’agrumes et de conifères sont aussi poivrées par les céréales. C’est bien bon. Au palais, le corps est huileux tandis que les bulles sont fines et explosives. La finale est poivrée et amère comme le seigle peut si bien le faire. Facile à boire. IPA de seigle bien exécutée.

On tap at Lieutenant’s Pump. Pour is cloudy dark gold with a finger of creamy cap. Good retention but not much lacing. Nose is tons of fresh hops: tropical fruit, citrus, a bit of pine, along with a bit of bready malt. Taste follows perfectly, with a really nice pine/bitter grapefruit finish. I didn’t pick up as much rye flavour/spice as I would’ve liked, but it’s still got a solid malt character, with a great hop profile. Very nice.

Growler - Grapefruit, nectarine and a nice fruity sweetness. Clearish gold with a decent white head. Huge pithy bitterness, leafy hope and refine. Pretty decent.

Growler from Pushkinwow, thanks bud. Golden amber pour, with light white head. Aroma, tropical fruit, lemon citrus, lots of fruit. Taste is citrus up front, light grassy tones, mild spice from the rye finish, crisp clean finish. Really solid.

Thanks cfrancis food this one. Pours a hazy dull orange. Beautiful aromas and flavors of bright citrus. Nice spicy rye malt bill. This is one of the best rye ales I’ve had.

On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. Last beer of the night. A cloudy orange peach fuzz looking pour, maybe cask? Earthy spicy pine aroma, tons of hops. The taste is fruity, peachy, rye and bitter hops, dead smooth mouthfeel - definitely cask. I love the end of fest day party vibe with beyond the pale’s dj kicking ass plus fire hoola-hooping - kickass.

Had this one to start the night at the Hintonburg Public House with a group of friends - a strong, but easy to drink beer that is guaranteed to lead to a great night! Hoppy, but smooth, with light carbonation. Really enjoyed the citrus notes, both in aroma and taste.
