COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We weren’t trying to be revolutionary in 2002, we just wanted to brew an interesting beer style using extra ingredients we had on hand. The resulting contribution to craft beer’s renaissance, was this rye-centric India Pale Ale. At 85 IBUs, California Sunshine Rye IPA is exceptionally well-balanced with assertive hop bitterness, a toasty, bready malt mouthfeel, and a grassy, dry finish. Enjoy our uniquely original re-imagining of a traditional English style IPA while pondering being the craft beer polymath you surely are. RyeIPA@DevilsCanyon.com

I picked up a bottle at Total Wine the day they got it in and drank it a couple days later. I’m not sure when this was bottled or how long it sat in the distributors warehouse, but this beer was terrible. Old, stale hop aroma with lots of caramel. Similar flavors with a hint of rye. Medium body with average carbonation. Down the drain!

jgb9348 (4659) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Deep dark amber coloured body with a ridiculously large just off-white head, about 8 centimetres tall. Aroma of rye, specialty grains, light grassy hops and a bunch of alcohol and deep bittering notes. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong rye flavour with a very deep hop note up front fading to a more earthy malt vibe and a little alcohol warmth noticeable. Aftertaste shows a ton of rye - more than the hop flavours, all with a lot of alcohol and quite a bit of earthiness. Overall, a nice rye-based IPA with a great look, just perhaps too much earthiness and rye flavours and not enough hop balance, for the style, especially. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from Total Wine in Tustin, California for US$8.99/4pack on 02-May-2013, sampled at home in New Paltz, New York on 05-July-2013 - thanks Phil!

[US West Coast Trip 2013] lite dov i doften för att vara en bra IPA. Men de ha verkligen lyckas med att hitta en fin fyllighet som backar upp beskan.

ALLOVATE (2351) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2013
Pours a sparkling fiery copper with little evident carbonation and a shortlived, loose pad of foam. Heavily piney, herbaceous and resinous hops are first off the mark on the nose, but this wanes to reveal hints of caramel, sticky marmalade and fresh baked Anzac biscuits. Starts off sweet on the palate; Anzac biscuits and marmalade with a bready, toasted malt backbone and hint of rose musk. Much more reserved than anticipated. Very little of the added rye to mention. Bitterness just apexes the malt; the finish floral, grassy and dry with a camphorous depth. Body is on the lighter side with low carbonation. Drinks easily enough but just didn’t grip me as I had hoped. Good, but not great! (16fl.Oz. can, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

Davros (1869) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours copper with a large head. Nose shows grassy, piny hops along with faint apple characters. Some spicy rye too. Pretty aggressive flavours. Lots of grapefruit and pine but little else to liven things ups. Not much malt, but some toasty, spicy rye. Sharp metallic finish. Too much carbonation.
