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.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2012 Pours a clear, coppery orange with a thin, pure white head of creamy foam. Nice lacing with short retention. Immediate and strong aroma of grapefruit, followed by other citrus fruits and herbal hops. Taste is a great balance between citrusy hops and the unique taste of malted rye. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel with a short floral hoppy aftertaste. A very nice and unique IPA. Next... the Imperial Super Rye Guy! I’m anticipating greatness! Cheers!

On tap @ Absinthe Ottawa. Pours a light amber with a thick but small white head. Aroma is sweet pineapple and piny resin. Taste is subtle sweet pineapple, dominant citrus (grapefruit), and pine resin. Rich, creamy mouthfeel with a mid-range lingering bitter finish. Nice IPA.

Great smell with all the usual American IPA aromas. Hazy golden colour with a tall thin head that dissipates quickly. Could use more carbonation but has solid citrus and pine flavours with a rye backbone.

spiced rye and fruit in the nose. A medium-thin head with lacing. Very tasty rye IPA featuring grapefruit and lemon in the hops, a touch of pepper and other spices and the added punch of partial replacement of barley with rye. Really nice balance in the hops, with a little bite on top of the fruity aspects.

Unfiltered dark gold with a white head leaving medium lacing. Light steady carbonation. Light citrus on the nose. Citrus with light malt and a tinge of caramel on the back of the tongue. Very drinkable IPA in the nice summer weather.

Groeler acheté à BTP. Couleur ambrée, mousse blanche, Arôme de houblon frais et malt, ça s’annonce bien. En bouche, le seigle est présent en masse, balancé avec l’importante quantité de houblon au arômes d’agrumes. Elle est pleine de saveurs et en même temps se boit bien...très bien. Finale avec un amertume et du seigle, qui donne des notes de poivre doux par moment. Excellente RyePA.

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 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.
