Double Trouble Brewing Fire In The Rye
This was recommended for my wife, who is into bitter high IBU pale ales, by a co-worker. Shr dug it but this is my review. I am noy a fan of biyter beers. We shall see.
Hazy orange rusty pour. Uber head. Super uber head. Foamy and thick. I think I could sculpt something with this head. Scent is that typical IPA scent. Grapefruit and hops.
Interesting. It’s bitter but not in the usual way. Still not a big fan vbut it’s better than most pale ales.

473ml can. I found I got more of the roasting than the rye, but it was still pretty good. Worth a try.

473ml can from the LCBO. Amber/brown body with very minimal off-white head. Seems to be a generic APA with the addition of rye. Grapefruit, pine, freshcut grass aromas are present with the rye flavoring coming out more throughout the taste.

enjoying this one. Usually rye ales seemed to be accompanied by something else, typically hops. This is pure rye. Incredibly flavorful.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange brûlé avec une mousse en filigrane, et un nez où les houblons dominent (fruits tropicaux), supportés par des malts assez puissants eux aussi (caramel, boisé). La bouche est passablement amère, avec des houblons plus doux vers la fin, et surfant sur une vague de seigle terreux et boisés. Le mélange est excellent, complexe et terriblement houblonné. Une pale ale avec beaucoup de chien, avec en prime une dangereuse buvabilité.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear deep copper with a fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and moderate lacing. Nose is dominated by rye and caramel malt, with little hop profile to speak of. Taste follows the nose, with spicy rye dominating the flavour, though there does seem to be a faint hop bitter in the finish. Moderate body and decent sustained carbonation, with no significant warming.
Probably one of the better offerings currently available from NLLC. Well, except for Duvel, obviously. And Leffe. And Mad Tom. And La Fin du Monde. OK, maybe it’s being generous to say it’s in the top ten, but it’s not bad. I like rye beers, generally, and there’s no overwhelming reason not to like this one. There’s not a lot of hop character, but the rye almost stands in for the hops, doing double duty as both the grain and the bittering agent.

A great beverage. Nice rye bread aromas and flavors. Citrus and caramel flavors blend seamlessly. A bit of cat pee in there too. Good stuff.
