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?

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

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.
