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.

Growler from the brewery, nice looking somewhat cloudy gold with a white foamy head. Aromas of hops and malt. Taste is an abundance of hops and citrus notes. I rather liked this Guy!

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 (1639) - 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.

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.

Howler to tulip Apricot, grapefruit, flowers, a little booze, and celery. Light amber, creamy bright white head. Hops, spruce, a little pine and pepper.

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