Hops. Flames. Flames. Hops. Did you get all of that? Good. Horns Up Rye IPA is a no holds barred India Pale Ale, chockers full of the best hops New Zealand and the US have to offer, all riding on a solid malt backbone with a hefty serve of malted rye to deliver to your taste buds the Lupulin kick you’ve been craving. Big pungent hops on the nose followed by hop flavour and bitterness cascading over the tongue with malt sweetness and biscuitiness from the rye. This IPA finishes strong and dry with a lingering bitterness that just goes on, and on, and on like a screaming heavy metal guitar solo, and an after taste that reminds you that you’ve just had an awesome hoppy experience, like the ringing in your ears after a decibel shattering concert. Horns Up!

330ml bottle. Big fluffy dirty whitehead atop an orange sunset amber base. Lots of pine and citrus at aromas that are pleasing to the nose and make you anticipate what’s to follow. Full flavoured with a big body and fruity flavour.

Brenhophead (639) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a sweet citrus aroma. It also have a nice sweet citrus taste with a big bitter finish. The rye also seems to add some unique flavour and i hear its hard to brew with so they have done well.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden orange with fluffy cream coloured head. Odd, but I found the aromas very sudued. A little biscuity malt and only the feintest hint of citrus hops. Flavours are not overly sweet but there is some light caramel there. Finish is quite bitter and very resiny. Seems very out of place given the aroma but perhaps the bottle was a little old.

bluevegie (3066) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2012
Fairly clear golden orange body, citrus notes on the aroma, good bitterness in the taste, a little resiny, the rye doesn’t standout much but drinkable.

maneliquor (3406) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy honey orange with a big fluffy white head. Head stays for the remainder and leaves some ok lacing. Nose is quite simple. Citrus and light honey malts on the nose. Pretty much the same in the taste, the over carbonation cuts out a fair bit of flavour. Excess carbonation might be a problem in the bottles I’ve had so far. Re-rate bottle thanks to Owen. Much better this time round. Very clean and sessionable with a slightly sweet lingering bitterness. Nice

(on tap at the cellar) Tim poured me one of these after sampling four other of his beers so my recollection may not be as good as it could have, but here goes... Lovely foamy head on this one, pungent citra and chinook flavours, especially bitter grapefruit. At 70 IBUs this isn;t quite the extreme RyePA I was expecting (25% rye grist) I did feel the body wasn’t quite right for a beer of this nature, possibly a little light-on! Overall it was well made but not quite as I’d hoped. I bought a 4-pack of the Pale instead.

Bottle. Pours with a hazy gold body and a large dense white head. Aroma:taste- strong citrus, tropical fruits, musk sticks with a sweetish honey-nectarlike body developing into a significant long bitter finish. Medium to light bodied.
