COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Ryehopper began as a fall seasonal and has now found it’s way into our regular line-up. The brewers noticed a lack of rye beers in the Asheville area and wanted to fill that gap. This beer represents assistant brewer Chris Richards’ first recipe released by the brewery. The malted rye contributes both a rounded maltines and a sharp earthy flavor, bridging the maltiness of the barley and the bitterness of the hops. In essence, the Ryehopper is a hoppy rye beer. Seriously, what else did you expect?

On tap @ French Broad. Pours a dark orange appearance with a dark golden appearance with a white head. Light citrus and spicy rye in the nose. High bitterness. Lots of rye and grainy notes. OK.

DrSilverworm (5021) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewery. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head, decent dots of lace. Good, citrusy hop, and bigger spicy rye notes. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Moderate bitter taste, a hint of citrus zest, light sweet. Very nice rye pale ale. Great, smooth, crisp texture to it. Easy drinking stuff, but satisfyingly flavorful.

It poured a dark orange color with a small white head. The aroma was of rye, spiciness, tart grapefruit and caramel malt. The taste was of rye bread throughout with malts and grapefruit hops. Nice.

Sample at the Memorial Day Deck Beers tasting on 05/27/2013: Clear copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops and grainy malt. Light to medium body with flavors of peppery hops and bready malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a spiced rye hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Very nice dark amber with a thin lacing head. The aroma has a malt sweetness with some bread. The flavor is not sweet at all, more peppery with some bitter hops. The finish is very clean and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
