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.

Brewerd with Amirillo and Cascade hops, this American Belo-Style ale beer is very aromatic and tasty to the palate. Very mild carbonation, and a delectable sweet taste. Winner of a gold medal at the GABF 2011!!

On tap @ the brewpub. Light orange amber, faintly hazy. Aroma of orange peel and light pine. Citrus peel hoppiness, lightly spicy, sweet candyish malts. Long coniferous bitter finish. Very tasty!

Had this at the brewpub in Chicago, Illinois. A nice, well balanced IPA, with spiceiness early on and a potent grapefruit finish that persisted. Excellent, and sessionable, despite the alcohol content.

Draft at Haymarket. The crow and the sparrow, I presume... Anyway, pours an attractive orangey gold with a sticky head. Nose is nicely full of tangerine and citrus and some nice spicy phenolics that play nice. On taste, a very well balanced beer. Very good interplay of late hopping and yeast character that really works for me. There is a good lack of astringency that is very welcomed. My favorite Belgian IPA from Pete. Excellent.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is very fresh, pungent, nice citric and spicy character, a touch herbal as the pungent tropical character is forefront. Flavor is tasty as well, the rye comes through nicely with the belgian yeast and spicy rye and hop character. Finishes with the belgian yeast following through with a touch of a stinky hop note. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Nice beer

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.

Light aroma of banana in sampler at oak park. Cloudy yellow flavor is all banana but a bit of hops. Better balance than flossmoor full day.

Pint pour at Haymarket in Chicago. This beer was fantastic, and despite the pork-intensive description given by the brewer, it went well as my easy going initial drink at the restaurant before the appetizers arrived. The flavor was calm but punctuated, simultaneous rye and hops, two of my favorite flavor components. No abv aftershock either. Very mild carbonation.

Sampled @ the brewery. My wife is addicted to the game and is a fan of IPA’s...had to try it. Crystal clear rusty penny pour with a small eggshell head. Aroma and flavor show citrus, spicy pepper, and honey. Medium mouthfeel.

On tap at Haymarket. Pours deeply hazed golden orange with nice off-white head. Aromas of belgain spices, yeast, tropical fruits, rye, and some hops. Flavors of belgain spices, grapefruit, tropical fruit, rye, clove, and some malty sweetness. Really nicely balanced and drinkable IPA. Pretty nice beer.
