The Ryehopper began as a fall seasonal and has now found itís 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 Richardsí 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?

Bomber. Pours a clear amber with a fluffy, creamy white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, rye, white bread and wheat. Taste is slightly spicy rye, malty caramel, biscuits, white bread and wheat. Nice bitter earth hops in the finish. Medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation. Very well balanced and very tasty!

Sample @ French Broad during RBWG. Amber with a small head. Earthy rye toast nose. A bit of spruce tree and polished wood. The taste has that characteristic spicy rye accent. Some lighter honeyed spruce hops. Toffee. Medium body, active carbonation.

Draft taster at the brewery during RBWG. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malt, spicy rye notes, resiny and earthy hops that lead to a moderately bitter finish.

Taster at the brewery- thanks! Think Iíd had this one back in the day, spring of 2009, so itís nice to revist it. Pours a clear gold color with a small off-white head. Notes of toast, earth, grains, florals, light citrus, and rye. Not as hoppy and rye-forward as advertised. Very subdued. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Not bad.

On tap at the tasting room. Orange pour with rich rocky off white head. Nose is immediate fresh, clean flowery and clean citrus bursts with a touch of spicy hops and bready malts. Flavor is floral and light clean citrusy hops. well blended with bready and slightly toasted malt qualities. Pretty nice. Head really lingers.

Strykzone (4782) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Bomber bought at the brewery. Clear and amber with a big beige head that has good retention. Tangerine fruit and light caramel in the aroma and a bit later rye is noted. Rye is definitely the lead flavor. It brings spice and some stickiness. Fruit behind that along with caramel and bread. That rye leaves a long lasting spicy bitter aftertaste. This is all about the rye and it is nicely done.
