Bristolís RyePA: With its rich copper color & exquisitely hoppy nose, Bristolís RyePA impresses at the very start. From there, bright, citrusy hop flavor takes center stage, set against a more subtle but solid malt profile. The rye malt lends its characteristic crispness, making this a highly refreshing addition to our Brewhouse Series.

Beaver (1394) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours cola colored with red notes and a smallish off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet cola and caramel malts and some rye.

The flavor is sweet nutty caramel malts with some rye and fruit with a resiny bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and fairly watery.

Overall, a decent rye pale ale.

3fourths (8395) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2012
bottle. cola brown pour with a small and quickly subsiding tan head. faint nose of american hop grass / citrus swimming in an ocean of crystal and roast malt caramel / chocolate / toffee. small bit of honey and gum noticed as well. medium body is chewy and goopy while the carbonation is light and the acid mild; all-together itís flabby and syrupy and falls apart as it moves across the middle. small touch of rye seed / bread character is overpowered by the gritty, earthy hop flavor and moderate bitterness. too many ingredients and none with any direction.

adnielsen (9659) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a hazy, reddish brown appearance with a bubbly, light brown head. Very piney and especially floral hoppy, spicy, mild citrusy, herbal, toasty, rye malty aroma. Toasty, slightly caramelized, mild rye malty, herbal/soapy/floral hoppy flavor with mild citrus and pine notes. Somewhat spicy, floral finish. A touch chewy. Not bad but nothing special.

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Tap at Brewery. Clear nutty red, small but laceful head. Smells remarkably just like rye bread, slightly toasted. Taste was toasty and bready with loads of rye tones, very not-subtle but thatís ok. Quiet bitterness until the finish when it becomes a little bigger, but the hoppiness isnít very pronounced. It seems that all the bitterness comes from the rye, and there is much of it. Itís like the liquid version of toasted rye bread.
