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

Tap @ The Bistro’s 2010 10th Annual Double IPA Festival. A slightly malty aroma and flavor with some cereal. It was hard to find the hops in this one.

10/29/12 notes: 16oz can poured into pint glass. In this era of ever bolder West-Coast style dry-as-hell hop bombs, it is refreshing to try a hoppy beer born of a different mother. Over a tawny amber-gold body sits a good head of sticky foam. Aromas of spicy cut grass mesh with doughy rye and a bit of caramelized pear. Flavor coats the mouth swiftly, striking with a toasty malty hit, then easing into resiny hop notes, musty red fruit and late-end grassy notes. Finish is robust and unique to the style. Recalls Hop Rod Rye, Hop Head Red, Weyerbacher Echo, and, oddly, Titan IPA.) 3.5.

On tap. Pours a nice amber color with a short off-white head and lacing. It has a aroma of pine and slightly citrus hops along with some amber malt. The flavor is hoppy up front with a medium body and a spicy rye and malt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

473ml can pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some hints of caramel. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine bitterness with a mild caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with adequate carbonation. This is definitely one for the hop heads as it has a bold over the top bitterness and is a little harsh on the palate. But still an all around good IPA.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
bright orange with a thick frothy white head with a wafting aroma of orange peels and freshly squeezed grapefruit. The aroma is mostly of fresh citrus fruits and juicy hop resins with a hint of pine. Toasted rye bread and slightly caramalized malt flavours with a monotone citrus hop taste and prolonged moderate hop bitterness. Mild sticky and resinous hop notes accompany a moderate and lingering hop bitterness.

473ml can. Orange coloured brew, unfiltered with light haze. 2 fingers of creamy white foam, good stickiness. Nose has orange peels, grapefruits. Taste is of bread, toasted grains, touch of earth. Finishes with earth and rye notes, long grapefruity finish. Medium bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, enjoyable, hops could be a bit brighter but would have this again.

maekchu (2093) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 8, 2012
16 fl. oz. can from Asahiya. Aroma of earthy hops, some pine, with thick malt backing. Very pretty light coppper color, big fluffy white head. Aggressive hopping in the initial; mid has some peppery rye which blends well with the hops; finish is a tongue coating of hops with final of hay and earth. Tasty stuff. Might be hopped up too much. The combo of rye and bittering hops is strong.

hayduke (3345) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 5, 2012
A joint tasting with Styrkzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a hazy orange with some darker notes with a big off-white head and good lacing. Nose of fruit, floral hops, along with some rye. The body is medium and the mouthfeel lively. The flavor is complex, with the fruit, rye, and hops producing a rich flavor. The bitterness is there from the beginning and holds up well in a long dry finish. This English IPA is made really good with the rye. Excellent beer.

Strykzone (4913) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. This beer poured hazed dingy golden orange. Half of my glass was off white foam and that left sticky lacing. I found applesauce, tangerines, and light rye in the aroma. First sip does bring rye. It is also a bit muddled with all kinds of flavors hitting my tongue at once. Bitterness, rye, pale malts, and fruit. Later a bit of spice was noted. The spice and rye grew with warming and this settled into a nice beer. Sweetness from the malts arrives very late and is a pleasant surprise. The strong finish was enjoyed. This had to have been one of the first Rye IPAs. If so it was a leader.

alexanderj (3314) - Branson, Missouri, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle; poured a clear orange amber with a big frothy head; lighting not the best. Aroma was a bit mild, with some resin, flowers, earth/grass, and bread. Flavor was better, but not the most vibrant or complex of IPAs. Fairly bready with some earthiness/grass/fruit in the finish. Some spiceiness in the finish. Solid, but a largely forgettable IPA.
