Deep River Brewing Company’s Riverbank Rye-It IPA is a amber pale ale, with subtle hints of rye and citrus. The spicy notes imparted by the rye thread together nicely with the citrusy aromas of Columbus hops.

Pint can. Pretty tasty- suprised at the rating. Pours a deep amber with an adequate off white head and nice lacing. Nicely balanced with the caramel malts and columbus hops that add bitterness without being overly dank/ overpowering. The rye adds a decent spicy note and Belgian yeast adds interest and general, well, yeastiness. Nice citrus/ pine notes and hints of grass. Finishes somewhat bitter, could almost say astringent. Decent and different.

Enthalpy (17) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Aroma. Like bread coming from the oven. A bit of spice. Appearance, Deep clear amber. Medium head with ample lacing. Taste. This beer starts with a backbone of maltiness. This lingers until the unmistakable taste of rye. Nice bitter spice flavor. Body. Great medium body with a soft mouthfeel. Overall a good example of the type.

Suttree (5355) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2014
Sampled at Hickory Hops 2014. Amber, orange colored with a ring of foam. Crisp, clean, lightly citrus aroma. Nice woody hops and a dry finish. Pretty standard Rye pale, which is fine, I like standard rye pales

DiarmaidBHK (3610) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
Can from Sam’s Quik shop. Pours grown with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Leaves lots of lacing in the glass. A little bit of rye on the nose. There’s rye and citrus hop notes on the tongue, though faint, and they do not play well with one another. Whoever thought this was a good idea should be kicked in the balls.

Draft. Hard to execute on a hoppy aroma amber with rye. Not sure you can actually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zizzybalubba (1547) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2013
On tap at BurgerFi, Raleigh, NC. Dark orange pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of ripe banana and light floral hops. The taste is caramel and bubblegum, mostly, with a touch of roses and grass. Not what I was expecting (and certainly not an IPA) but a decent beer.

Pint at Tribeca Tavern Cary. Ok aroma. Not much going on really. Light orange and cereal. Brownish orange color. Good head, little to no lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body. Slivk creamy mouthfeel, bitter sweet finish its ok. Nothing I’m getting exvited about. Mild aroma. Flavor tad more interesting
