The brainchild of Jeff Sparrow and our own Director of Fermentation, this Belgian IPA is 30% rye and hopped with Amarillo and Cascade. Pairs well with pulled pork chili, bacon mac n cheese.. Anything from a pig, really.

On tap, poured into an english pint glass. The aroma is initially lemon citrus and yeast with rye coming through late and taking over; although overall, all notes are mellow. The beer is a murky yellow-brown with a dense, fuzzy white head, retaining an abundant, medium-thick ring with a fuzzy, wisp surface. There’s a touch of lace left on the glass. The taste is a medium bitter with a medium high swell of sweet that ends up balancing the beer nicely. It’s creamy with soft fuzz carbonation. The medium body starts with sweet orange citrus, stone fruit, and bubblegum. It’s crisp with grapefruit and rye in the spicy finish. Rye and light citrus peel linger with an astringent quality, but it’s mellow and kinda clean.

tmoreau (2682) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2014
On tap at the Chicago Beer Society’s Umpteenth Annual Picnic, and self served to a clear, plastic shaker displaying a hazed, orangey gold color, with silky, white head foam, and clingy lacing. The nose was initially citrusy tart, followed by malty sweetness, and light spice. A little less than medium bodied, with presentable carbonation, the taste was somewhat similar notes, moderately bitter, with a non boozy, but definite alcohol presence, and a pleasant bit of dryness to the finish. Decent Pete & Jeff collaboration.

On tap @ Haymarket. Hazed orange pour with a white head. Clove spiciness, nutmeg, and some bread. A decent bit of fruit such as pineapple and banana. Super fruity flavor. Tons of pineapple, mango, banana, and pears. Decent spiciness of clove and nutmeg...a bit of white pepper, too. Some sweet malt base to it. Enjoyable.

Dogbrick (8903) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy golden color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of spicy hops, roast malt and citrus. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

ACHops (847) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2013
On tap @ Haymarket. Pours slightly cloudy dark golden with thin head. Aroma is light roasted malt and plenty of Belgian candi sugar. Taste is thin sugary sweet malt with heavy rye notes. Hops are plentiful - floral, citrusy, and bitter. Very well balanced to the sweeter malt. A bit of an odd beer... but delicious and refreshing nonetheless. Deserving of the accolades.
