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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Deep orange, almost burnt, moderate to large foamy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Pale rye on the nose, slight hop, some dried grasses as well.   A bit more pronounced on the tongue, rye, citrus zest, and hops.   Moderate sweetness, balances well.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft pale grainy finish, rye, a little citrusy, along with dried grasses.   Not a show stopper, but not bad either.   Gets more sweet and citrusy as it warms.

Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is of pine and grains (sort of bread-y). Flavor is good: pine, citrus, hops, malt, bread, and coffee. However, didn’t get so much rye. Good overall, worth a try!

adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with OCBeerSociety. Thanks! Pours a hazy golden appearance with a cream colored head. Spicy rye, slightly dull bready, mild grapefruity aroma. Somewhat juicy, grapefruity, orange cream sickle, fairly sweet, dull bready, bitter herbal hoppy flavor. Doesn’t taste super fresh but not sure I’d enjoy it much more even if it was fresh.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bomber from K & L Liquors, Hollywood. Handsome pour of bright golden-orange, with a nice billowy head and silky carbonation. Nose is rustic, grainy, and nicely dry, with a healthy undercurrent of potent tropical hops. Buoyant mouthfeel, solid carbonation. The rye and the grainy flavors combine with the hops to give this a moderately spicy feel, almost like an earthy but very well-hopped saison in places. Very enjoyable brew.

Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - JAN 12, 2013
