COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We werenít 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 beerís 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

pintbypint (3326) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 22, 2012
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.

jamestulloch (3292) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2016
Can from Drygate. Hazy orange body with tiny yeast flecks floating beneath a medium off-white head. Lively carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of salted caramel, tomato, marmalade and dried grass. Flavour of peppery rye, blood orange, toffee and rusted metal. Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Light fizz. Lots of hoppy bitterness, which I like, but it doesnít quite come together.

caesar (6485) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2016
Can from Firma Bier, large sample. Almost clear golden to orange color, some debris floating, medium frothy head. Aroma of citrussy hop, some cookie, grapefruit, bit caramel. Bit sweet cookie in taste, medium citrussy bitterness. Nice stuff.

Idiosynkrasie (6182) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2016
650ml bottle. Barely clear, orangey, deep golden colour with absurdely huge, creamy, mostly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Minimally strawy, fruity hoppy aroma, hints of orange and mandarine, cautious rye spiciness, some candied orange peel, a waxy touch of citrus fruit peel as well. Taste is moderately sweet, fruity and slightly zesty hints of orange and mandarine, waxy overtones; light but not watery, rather simple but not monotonous. Meh. [No parallels to Maddie intended].

TattooJack (479) - Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Poured from the 4-pack of tall boy cans, nice cloudy orange with white head. Taste is tropical, pine, sticky, bitter, gritty, and dry at the end. This is one of the better rye IPA Iíve had, far less doughy than most of them.

RichardGretton (4614) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle. Orangey beer with a reasonable head. The atom is yeasty and fruity, and the flavour is dry is with plenty of bitterness and hops. Overall a nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
