Cascade, Cluster and Simcoe hops marry perfectly with rye malt to create this unique and crisp Rye I.P.A. “Rocket Dog to save the day!” This is the local’s tap room favorite. Available year-round in 22oz. bottles and kegs.

Bottle... had a rye taste from the beginning but taste didn’t change over palate nor did it seem to change as the temperature warmed. Single noted flavor

alexanderj (3429) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Bottle; poured a lighter than expected amber with a huge frothy head. Aroma of earth, citrus, yeast, funk and orange. Flavor was a bit mellower. Rye a bit noticeable. Not as hoppy as expected, but get some resin on the palate. Earthy and citrus. Good, not great.

I’ve been on a bit of a RyePA binge lately, so forgive me if this is a bit harsh. Everything about this beer is astringent. The carbonation is massive and twice I had to do the "oh s*#t dance" to the sink to catch the overflow. Smells like rye, lemon zest and booze. Very medicinal. It may be only 62 IBU but the severely out of balance rye and citrus acidity makes this beer a task to drink. I had higher hopes (it’s IPA Day after all).

A strange milky aroma - no...like some tropical fruit, like tomate de arbol. This doesn’t taste that much like an IPA to me. More like a stringy ale. Okay, but not a repeat for me, and a bit overrated in my opinion.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Tucson) - Pours a hazy golden color with a half finger thick white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is hops and light rye. Flavor is hops, rye, esters, and light toasted malt. Finish is some what bitter, but not astringent. Medium body. A good beer.

emacgee (4426) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Pours a cloudy lemon rind yellow with two fingers of creamy off white head. Spicy citrusy nose with some herbal and bready notes. Rye comes through very nicely, not astringent at all. Citrusy and spicy flavor with some bready character and peanut hull. Dry and spicy palate with a medium body.

marcus (7818) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours murky orange with a thick off-white head and a citrus and toffee aroma. There is a nice pale malt flavor with a tasty hop profile and a bitter dry rye finish. The mutliple flavors work well together resulting in an interesting and satisfying drink.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle from State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD. Clearer than expected deep garnet supporting a medium tall rocky head with a good deal of lacing. Big spicy and slightly yeasty aroma with pine resin in the background. Spicy rye grabs you right away then the citrusy hops smack you from behind. Healthy doses of toffee, vanilla, apples and milk chocolate too. Silky mouthfeel and a wickedly dry spicy finish.
