There is no doubt variety is the spice of life and we love going off in all kinds of directions looking for new flavors. Like all travel though at some point your heart turns back toward home. Home, robust American ales. This route travels along a path of piney American hops, Simcoe, Cluster, and Horizon their natural course coaxed toward spicy by a touch of rye. Drink Red Rye Returning because home is where the hops is.

BLADT (630) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Tap pour. Cloudy reddish brown in glass. Caramel and rye on nose, with a not too submit helping out floral hops. Fresh. Taste trends towards the bready rye and caramel notes, with the good from the nose dropping to the background. Some spice and nuttiness not present on nose also factor. Good, but the flavors could be better matched.

jdb288 (534) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Draft. Pours clear amber/orange with minimal white head around edges. Aroma is floral, pine, lemon pledge, grass. Taste incorporates those elements and adds that signature rye spiciness. Not as robust or pronounced and Iím not getting any notable sweetness as I usually associate with a "red rye". Still, not bad at all.

Reddish brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, light pine, and caramel malts. Taste of caramel, citrus, light pine, and a spicy rye finish. Pretty standard rye red, just not my cup of tea usually.
