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 @ Haymarket. Pour is golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fresh and full of citrus - orange, tropical fruit, clove, honey. Flavor is similar with a sweet and spicy finish.

Dogbrick (11179) - 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 (1286) - 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.

Draft at Haymarket brewpub. Some hops in nose and initial taste but quite mild. Interesting mix of mild hops and. Lots of alcohol...but not dominant in the taste. Good but not great.

Tap at Haymarket pub and brewery, Chicago - 04/11/12. Lightly hazed pale golden. Floral hops on the nose, mango, peach, light yeast notes, candied sugar, touch of spice. Taste follows nose, a little pine, madarin and orange, peach once again. Fuller end of medium bodied with a bitter fruity finish.

ROGUE (2161) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 13, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Pours a dark amber color with a tight thin white cap. Aroma of light citrus hops and bready rye with a touch of belgian spicy funk. Taste is of zesty rye, lemon and floral hops, and slight bready malts. Has a astringent bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a touch of resiny oil lingers on the tongue through the finish.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Hazy gold with sticky lacing. Medium aromas of citrus. Palate is.very strong with a pungent grapefruit flavor and an earthy finish. Very strong flavors-if you don’t like the taste of grapefrut rind, this is.not for you

phaleslu (9255) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a pale straw gold with an orange hue and no head. Notes of grass, herbs, sweet malts, and pepper, along with some orange citrus and sweet bread. The Belgian character definitely takes a backseat to the Amarillo character. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a spicy, sweet mouthfeel. Good IPA.
