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?

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of SpringsLicker. Pours a cloudy deep golden with a white head. Rich caramel and perfumy hops in the nose. Fairly solid body, rich caramel, a sweet maltiness and a little perfumy hops leading to a rather bitter finish. Actually a rather decent IPA. 150313

jbruner (1983) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours a clear copper from the bottle with thin off-white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is rye and caramel malt with a faint hop back. Taste is peppery rye mostly, but balanced well with the hops and other malts. Light and clean on the tongue. Pretty damn good.

BMMillsy (1148) - Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Pours amber brown with red around the edges and a small soapy head. Aroma is heavy on the spice, with a dash of dish soap smell, sweet caramel and toffee, and a tinge of pine. Flavor very much highlights the rye, spicey black pepper, some pine bite, bit of dark dry fruit with serious dry finish. Has some qualities of a dubbel but without much sweetness. Light to medium mouthfeel that finishes dry. Very true to the rye here, and does not go all IPA on you like a lot of "rye" pales do. I respect that.

ansermadide (1464) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2013
This has a thin, caramel colored body with an off-white head. A thin film forms atop the beer as the head fades. The aroma is deliciously hoppy with a touch of rye – light and sweet. It’s thin, with a very mellow flavor profile. Rye is light, sweetness is light, a hint of caramel and sweetness. A lingering rye and hop flavor persists into the finish. Light, well-decorated, and overall, well, nice.

Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2013
From tap at Brewery. Pours hazy amber with nice head. Aroma was grassy but more on the floral/citrus side then pine. Taste followed. Had to double check this with an additional pint.

I got this in a recent trade but I cannot remember who sent it to me, thank you whoever you are! Dark amber color but not brown and yet not orange. Smells pretty nondescript, I was expecting hops given the label. The label also led me to believe I would taste rye in this beer but I got almost none of it. I did get a bit of oxidation though. Overall this was quite an average beer, not bad but not special at all. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-15-2011 22:41:31

The aroma is hoppy with grassy/piney hops and sweet malt. The appearance is hazy amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a light bitter finish but is very watery. The palate is thin. Overall this is an average beer.

It's very thin and not much flavor. It has a nice slightly nutty flavor. The rye packs a slight punch. It great as a session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from trade with Suttree. Thanks Phil! Dark, hazy, copper with a moderate beige head. Nice filmy lacing. Aroma of rye bread and some raisiny fruit notes. Taste is fruity and sweet with a nice rye spice and a mild bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth and refreshing. Nicely done.
