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.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2012
From 32 on. growler. Pours a pale golden ale with light haziness and a thin off white head. In aroma, a nice caramel malt with citrusy hops, citrus pulp, very fruity. In mouth, a smooth herbal hops meets fruity caramel malt, a bit light but quaffable.

Ferris (12695) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Growler - Grapefruit, nectarine and a nice fruity sweetness. Clearish gold with a decent white head. Huge pithy bitterness, leafy hope and refine. Pretty decent.

balanced rye pa,drinkable with noticeable head. At the brewpub. This is the version I liked rather than the super hopped up version.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
2013-10-06. Orange body with smallish white head. 3+ Pleasant hoppy aroma with notes of grassy mild citrus. Flavour is fairly bitter - more so than I expected - light grainy rye and mild citrus hops throughout. Finish is ever so slightly astringent at times. Average plus is suitably carbonated. Lacks the depth of some other IPAs but is quite flavorful and quaffable. Growler from the brewery.

[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."

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
Growler. Pours a hazy copper-gold with an average size long-lasting frothy white head and some lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of rye malt, a good amount of hops, grain and some fruit. Flavour follows the aroma with rye malt, citrus hops, grain and fruit and finishes with a moderate to big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Really good stuff.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Growler: Poured a dirty amber color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops with light peppery notes of rye is quite nice. Taste is also dominated by spicy rye notes with some citrusy hops and some dry caramel malt notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very enjoyable Rye IPA with maybe just a tad too much residual sugar notes.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
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.
