COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours a spectacular crimson red with a creamy tan head. Brewed with four varieties of Belgian caramel malts imparting a sweet richness. Reds Rye is impressively balanced with its hop bitterness and floral bouquet achieved from the dry hop. In the finish, the generous amount of malted rye used accentuates a spicy crisp finish.

Bottled - winter seasonal. On tap - year-round.

Note: Formerly Redís Rye P.A.

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle poured into tumbler. Appearance is rich copper with some extra red tint and very thin off-white head. Aroma is very citrusy, grapefruit coming forward most prominently with a bit of pine. The taste is an interesting mix of hoppy citrus flavors and malty caramel. I canít taste the rye at all. Smooth, light, slightly creamy feel. The hops/malt balance feels slightly off, but otherwise a superb beer.

Copper pour with an off-white head. Aroma is spicy rye with notes of hops. Flavor is hop resin and earthy rye. Decent, I would have been ok with slightly more hop flavors but still decent as is.

orangesol (853) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Served on-tap at Alís of Hampden into a nonic pint.

A - Pours deep amber orange, with a few ruby undertones, with a nice pillow of one finger tall off-white head leaving thick rings of lacing down the glass.

S - Lots of strong citric hops up front mix well with the spicy rye and caramel malt core. Hard to tell if it is an IPA or a Rye beer. Very nice.

T - Plenty of strong citric hops dominate the start and linger long thru the finish. The lightly toasted caramel malt, biscuity rye, and dulled citric fruits offer some contrast to the strong hop presence as best they can. Finish is a mix of bready rye and hop bitterness, lingering for some time.

M - Medium-heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Nice smooth feel with plenty of lingering rye and dulled hop bitterness in the finish.

D - Not too bad. I enjoyed this one but the overall bready feel really brought the drinkability down a few notches. I felt like I ate half a loaf of hoppy bread after only one glass.

The rye base alters this IPA in a fun way. Sits heavily rather than crispy to finish but starts with some fascinating palate of hoppiness and fruitiness. Not a "must drink" when on a menu but a must-try and well-crafted beer. On tap at Pizzeria Serio in Chicago. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

commonmac (323) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Tap at Butcher and the Boar. Bumped pint glass. Copper/amber color with healthy amount of head. Iím not getting too much along the lines of aroma. Taste is targeet subdued with mostly malty characteristics. Really easy to drink. I can taste some of the rye notes almost laced with a hint of caramel. Friends have traditionally lumped this together with Two Brothers Cane and Abel as the strongest ryes on the market and this rendition meets those expectations. Some hop resin on the middle but finishes malty clean. This redhead appreciates Redís effort.

ARH (405) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2014
On tap poured into a shaker-like glass. The aroma is a roasty caramel with grapefruit citrus, bread crust, light biscuit and graham, and a touch of pepper. The beer is a clear caramel red color with a light brown head, a light web lace, a thin ring and a thin tail of a surface. Itís highly bitter with a medium sweetness. The waxy texture has a medium full body with an active, fuzzy carbonation.The finish is toast, caramel, some citrus, and a touch of resin - the rye isnít really that prevalent. The resin sticks around in the aftertaste with some pepper traces, but itís mostly clean.

Red-Copper color with an off white head. Hoppy aroma with a fruit hint. Hoppy taste. Not a bad beer at all.

A bit too hoppy but good! But I got used to the taste as I drank it down. Beautiful color. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
