Draft at the quah. Pours a slightly hazy burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Loose sheeting lace. Nice peppery rye nose with some floral piney undertones. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sharp peppery rye on the mid palate with toast and caramel following, then a crisp resiny finish. Nice one.

Draft @ Issaquah Brew House, Issaquah. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty aroma with some hoppy hints. Fruity malty slightly hoppy flavor with some hints of rye. Has a fruity malty hoppy bitter finish.

Issaquah Frog Rye IPA is delightfully hoppy in aroma and taste. It’s dark orange and a bit cloudy. The head pulls a Houdini not too long after the pour. The brew is bitter for sure, but there’s also a citrusy sweetness below that provides support and complexity. The low carbonation allows for big swigs and easy swallowing. A floral aftertaste swoops onto stage for the finale.

Tap at barcade.Spicy and earthy with lots of hops and a grainy earthy rye kick and some pine needle. Fruity esters throughout with lot sof citru sand pine -with an earthy dry bitter finish. Nice.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Tap at Naked City. Man I got a lot of rye in the aroma. Kind of spicy grainy rye combined with floral, citrus skin hops. Pours a hazy orange with a thin non lasting white head. The flavor is straight up spicy rye malt initially. Afterwards some medium bittering hops kick in and I get mostly floral, some grapefruit rinds perhaps. I got more rye in this one than the others it appears. The hops in this one are not too outgoing, and kind of fade away in the finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Tap at Barcade’s 4th Anniversary Party: Pours a deep hazy orange with a fading off-white film of head. The aroma is sticky sweet/syrupy orange, pacific northwest hops come through with a touch of sweet peach. Slick texture and sweet bodied. Some bready caramel notes in the flavor- along with syrupy sweet citruses. The sweetness is big, and the rye isn’t really evident. There’s an abruptly dry/ resinous finish which is long, leafy and earthy. Not very balanced nor cohesive. If it were less sweet with more rye/bready notes, it’d be solid.

JoeMcPhee (8210) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2008
Tap at Ginger Man. Hazy amber beer with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with a definite soapiness in the aroma. A bit of light orange peel and a touch of light resinousness as well. Flavour is pretty nice. Very soft creamy palate and a light rye spiciness that comes across on the back of the palate. A little bit fruity with a lightly spicy finish. The soapiness never really dissipates but it isn’t all that objectionable either. Low cohumulones which is pretty unusual for these guys. Lightly grapefruity with a light pine finish. It’s okay, but a little bit boring.

Advertised and sold as "Issaquah" Frog Rye IPA. I guess this is the right entry since this brewer is tied in with Rogue. Hazy orange/copper with a cream colored frothy head. Spotty lacing. Fragrant floral, citrusy/orangey and minty tea hops in the aroma- nice PNW profile. Clean caramel malt body along with a rye spiciness and tanginess, finishing with an assertive but smooth citrusy hop bitterness, leaving a lingering but light resin. Excellent balance among all the malt and hop components. I enjoyed this one. (Poured from a Bierkraft growler).

Full amber bronze with okay head. Piquant peachy hop and rye aroma leads into a similar flavor of peach and rye and hops. Quite tasty and well balanced with moderate complexity. A good find.
