VincentDamon (308) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2013
Belle couleur rougeoyante, avec une mousse beige correcte. Nez sucré, fruité, avec des notes de cerises confites et d’épices (cannelle, muscade). En bouche, c’est plus fruité et caramélisé que houblonné : première déception pour ma part. C’est plus similaire à une petite rousse. En finale arrivent des notes fumées. N’a rien à voir avec les solides IPA que l’on croise parfois, mais c’est quand même une belle petite rousse.

HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
500ml bottle. Huge sponge toffee head, hazy amber, so much haze you can see little wispy clouds through it. Mostly IPA hop aroma, with hints of rye spiciness. Taste starts with rye pepperiness and finishes with piney hops. Solid body. Overall, a very solid offering.

DuffMan (6494) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange with a generous orange-tinted head. Spicy citrus hoppy nose, zippy, lively. Very fresh hoppy profile (not sure the age of this bottle, but it sure is fresh), fresh pineapple, grapefruit, light pine, lightly spicy. Rye malt or not, this is a great IPA, and the rye certainly adds a nice spicy kick.

J’adore l’odeur qui se dégage de la mousse de cette bière filtrée mais riche en saveur.

UM02 (302) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2013
Very well balanced beer with the unique taste of the rye well integrated into the malt flavour. Nice subtle hopping that blends well with the rye. The rye really gives it a unique taste without being strange tasting. If anything it is a little bit too pleasant and easy drinkable but not sure that is really a flaw.

stantheman (620) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2013
A 500 ml bottle from Viti @ The Met. Pours a promising amber color with a generous beige head. Slightly fruity and bitter on the nose. The rye is up front with some hop backing. Very refreshing. A nice rye ale.

probstblueribbon (2864) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy deep copper with a nice orange-tan head. Aroma: Fairly strong floral, pine, green grassy hops, kinda peppery, some sulphur (unfortunate), caramel and dark bread crust malt backbone, tropical fruits, pretty nice. Palate: Medium body, somewhat sparse effervescence. Flav.: A touch vegetal, less assertive floral/pine/resin/grassy hops, still a bit peppery, decent dry caramel and dark bread crust support, a little dark dried fruitiness, a bit of pineapple and tropical fruits, pretty good; dry with pretty good bitterness and a rye bread crust and resinous hop finish.

That cow might not be crazy after all...

lesifflebiere (1201) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2013
Belle couleur rouge feu, mousse blanche-crème qui forme bientôt un collier sur le pourtour du verre. Au nez, houblon, sucre et fraises ; en bouche, c’est encore le combo fruité-sucré qui domine (fraises, pommes, sucre cuit, boisé), mais le houblon est aussi dans le décor, quoique l’amertume est relativement faible. Une excellente IPA au seigle, merveilleusement ronde et savoureuse, parfaitement balancée et agréablement complexe.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2013
(500ml bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of rye, grass, caramel, cereal, and citrus. Flavor of grass, minerals, caramel, toasted grain, and earth.

Hungarian_G (87) - - FEB 17, 2013
Clear amber-gold pour with two fingers of off-white foam that quickly recedes into a thin ring leaving only minimal lacing. Nose of spicy malted rye, citrus hops, some sweet dried fruit and a decent helping of herbal, grassy notes. Taste follows; very well balanced. I love the complexity that the rye brings to an IPA so this is probably my favourite style of beer. Along side some resinous and citrus hops comes notes of seasonal spices: ginger and allspice, as well as dried cherries and some caramel sweetness. Again, balance is excellent! On the nose bitterness. Medium carbonation with a somewhat thicker mouthfeel and lingering pithy bitter finish. One of my top 5 right now for sure! Well done!
