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

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
Can. Light amber, hazy, with a thin head. Has that rich chewy rye character that goes with sort of stale hops. Moderate bitterness, light rye character, a touch of piney hop in the finish. Ok,

an, bbotmc. Cloudy amber with a small white head. Aroma of black pepper and molasses and some pine. Rye dryness in the mouth with some candy sweetness, black pepper, a little bitter. Medium body, sweetish finish. OK, a little old, I think.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - JUN 25, 2015
Can. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Nice citric and piney hops aroma, just a bit stale, with malt, and some spicy rye. Sweetish malt flavor with toast, a bit of caramel, some rye, and a bitter hops finish, a bit piney and citric. Medium-bodied. Decent, but could be fresher.

UXO (819) - CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
Pours clear to slightly hazy pale amber with two fingers of ivory head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, good lacing. (3/5) Nose is bright citrus and tropical fruit, pale malt, pine resin, mild rye. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light sour. (7/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Quite a pleasant rye IPA - very well-balanced, both in terms of the hop bittering and the pale malt, but also in the contribution of the sour rye. Iíve found that rye IPAs can sometimes be a bit aggressive in the rye notes - which isnít necessarily a negative - but itís interesting to have one thatís a bit more even-handed in its approach. I have to say, Iím liking this brewery - solid products, if not quite stellar. (15/20)
