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

jazz88 (2646) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Tap @ The Bistroís 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.

caesar (6301) - 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 (5869) - 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 (428) - 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 (4566) - 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
