COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest addition to our year-round lineup. For you hop heads out there, you have to try this! This American style IPA made with rye grain tops the charts at over 85 IBU (that’s a lot of bitter!). It’s starts with floral hop notes a big malty body hinting at the underlying rye grain and finishes with a nice clean bitterness.

On tap at brewery. Pouring orange in color, this beer offers up a fresh, potent aroma of leafy hops and flowers. The flavor starts with hop notes, lemon, and soft sugar. The mid-palate is a tough less smooth, and features some spiciness. The hop-bitterness, however, never really shows face in the finish. Perhaps it is a bit too understated for me, but nonetheless, quality.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle: Pours a mostly transparent copper amber with a well-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of fresh, resiny piny hops and sweet toasty dark caramel with a hint of rye. Starts with good malty fullness and sweet toasty caramel with lots of fresh resiny grapefruity hops. Finishes crisp and bittersweet with lingering juicy flavor hop notes. A well balanced and enjoyable IPA.

Copper with a fizzy white head. Big sweet candy and burnt caramel aroma. Butterscotch dominated the flavor with a creamy palate and buttery finish. Very well done.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 27, 2009
22oz bottle. Dark gold pour with an off-white head. Sweet aroma, almost buttery, might be due to the rye malt. Nice hoppiness, just a little bitter with some sweetness in the backround, not bad.

On tap at Newport Beach Brewing Winterfest, this orange beer has a nice blending of rye spiciness and IPA hoppiness. I liked it.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Brilliantly clear orange hue, modest white head. Nose is rye and bitter grassy hops, light fruits, grainy malts. Flavor is rye and grainy malts, balanced by high hop bitterness and grassy resin flavors, finishes dry and bitter. Overall a great example of a balanced rye IPA with a solid malt presence!
