COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Gluepot (52) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
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.

Gorbalev (2905) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
Growler from the brewery. Dark hazy yellow, small white head. Fruity, grainy aroma - quite nice. Taste is terrific - a solid amount of citrus hops mixed perfectly with a ton of rye malt. I love these rye IPA’s when done this well. While not a rye beer specifically, this reminded me of Great Divide Hercules, which is a big compliment. Very sessionable. A great introduction to this brewery.

blankboy (5948) - 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 (4636) - 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.
