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?

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

GTAEgeek (1142) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2013
Growler from Blind Murphy’s. Nice copper color, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is mild rye, resin, herbs, and pine tar. Malty-sweet flavor, with a relatively mild bitterness through the finish. A metalic twang in the aftertaste. Light to medium body, a little acidic, crisp, and clean. Overall, this is a mild and drinkable rye IPA, but nothing special.
