COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We werent 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 beers 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

My favorite. Grassy, grainy. Not another pine tree superhop beer. Floral nose, gentle bitterness. A double IPA that is refined and unassuming. love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Big bottle split (grudgingly) with the missus. Bright, foaming bronze-gold with a tenacious white head. Fresh hop aroma of lemongrass, pineapple jelly, red apple and guava. Fresh hoppy flavour with notes of galangal, flowers, lemon zest and grapefruit. A grapefruity US IPA that actually tastes of grapefruit, not London Pride or peach iced tea. G+T- bitter, botanical linger. Zesty, hop-dry, alpha-drenched stuff with minimal malt flavour: IPA as I like it.

bhensonb (10805) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Bomber listed at 7.1% ABV and 85 IBUs from Whole Foods in Folsom, CA. Label only claims to be an IPA (rye centric IPA). Pours copper with a 2.5 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma has that spicy rye aspect. Full bodied. Creamy carbonation. Flavor is definitely rye with a lot of fruit, floral and probably grapefruit rind for hop. This is quite a tasty ale. The carb backbone is clearly present to the finish, and nicely supports all the hop. In the end theres rye and a bitter hop burn. Excellent.

On tap at Beer 39. Clear amber. Sweet tropical fruit aroma. Taste is spicy grains, fruity hops, with a spicy dry bitter finish. Medium body, smooth.

hayduke (3322) - 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.

tightslice (159) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Fruity, nutty rye spice, caramel malts, bitter peels, mild hops, astringent. Not overly hoppy and the rye notes were a nice touch. Maybe needs a bit more smoothing out of the alcohol but overall not your run-of-the-mill pine and citrus IPA... I enjoyed it.

DuffMan (6552) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
Can. Medium amber-orange with a tightly packed light orange head. This is a malty IPA (and Ive said it before, I LIKE my IPAs malty!), with sweet and spicy rye taking center stage, nicely toasted, ending in an assertively hoppy bitter finish. Really tasty malt structure here, although Im sure a true hophead will be lamenting over the second-seating given to the hops. I loved it.
