COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden/amber beer that showcases bold American hops with the extra flavor dimension of the use of rye malt as 20% of the malt bill. This is a shockingly balanced IPA, in the sense that we include just enough malt character to counter the otherwise intense bitterness typically found in an American IPA, making for an immensely pleasant experience for your palate.
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Columbus
Malt: Pale, Rye, Crystal

Pour is a heavily hazed copper with a red hue and a right tan head. Nose has a strong rye spice to it, malt up front, caramel and grain. Hops are citrusy with a bit of pine and slightly stale. Taste is a bit more fresh, not as spicy or malt forward. Much more balanced, citrusy and piney with a light hop resin. Finish is where the rye spice comes in with a light bitterness and mildly carbonated medium body.

Pours light reddish to copper with white head. No real aroma weird for an ipa. Flavor was only lightly hoppy up front. A bit of malt sweetness but more takes over due to lack of hops. I really dont get much rye not much pepper at all. First beer from this brewery not impressed.

Hazy color, nice retention around the glass. Smell and taste of pine, rye seed, mild bitterness, overall a really solid ipa

Pour is a clear copper with a average white head. Aroma is hoppy, spicy and sweet malty. Flavor is a decent dark bready malt with some spicy pine hops to follow. No real huge rye presence but Iím guessing itís in there. This is more like a overly hopped marzen. Lots of bready malts with a decent hoppy back bone. Not what I was expecting but the combo of the bready malts and spicy hops works well here.

Poured from a can. Burnt orange, hazy with an off-white head. Some lacing. Not much aroma. Bitter rye aftertaste. So-so. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a deep orange with solid fluffy head. Nose shows spicy bread, pine and citrus, like lemon peel. Taste is upfront citrus hops leading to a spicy rye finish. Possibly lacks that big hit of rye finish I was after, but the spot nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ElGaucho (2193) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Can. Rich, caramelly aroma with hops. Smells more like a DIPA. Slightly hazy amber with beautiful lattice lacing. Initially somewhat tinny. Mouth puckeringly piney with a long finish. Not my favorite.

Zeswaft (1361) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2014
Can. Big frothy white head. Copper color. Aroma is slightly citrus hops but mostly generic beer smell. Flavor is mighty fine. Lots of citrus hop and the finish is spicy rye. Flavor is a clone of Hop Rod Rye. Nicely done.

Davhgbrew (930) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Amber color. Other than that I canít say I taste any rye. Mostly hop bitterness up front and slight caramel malt sweetness to even it out. Finish has a spicy cinnamon or clove like flavor. Also very dry and moisture sucking that makes me not want to keep drinking.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Easy drinking IPA nice use of rye malt. This is a average drinking Rye IPA.
