Rye IPA er et kobberfarget rikt IPA med en maltaktig ryggrad som matcher den vanvittige mengden humle som er brukt under bryggingen. Dette ølet har en IBU på +100 og er balansert med masse aromahumle. Rug og havre topper det hele slik at den totalt er en intens og unik opplevelse. Alkoholstyrken er 8,5%

Editor’s note: First served on tap at 7.7% ABV.

Keg at The Draft House, Tower Bridge, London at 8.6% ABV. Clouded amber with white head. There is an initial light toffee’d note to this, fortunately not overly so and it is soon enveloped by a smooth general fruitiness. The hops are there, I liked to think of Norwegian Spruce, slightly resinous. On the whole it is easy on the palate and very drinkable.

Beese (1953) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Draught at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green on 17 Oct. Poured a hazy, deep golden colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of butterscotch, rye and violets. Toffee sweetness in the flavour, with some hay and flowery notes. Finish had some light lingering hop bitterness, biscuity malt and brown sugar. Seemed to have lost its hoppy edge somewhat.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2014
Rich and yielding. Smells weakly of a pleasant graininess with hints of newly harvested hay and some fruit. The taste is hoppy with an accent of liquorice, hints of broccoli which stay until far out in the aftertaste. Feels healthy, as it gives the impression of a powerful vegetable. With the sediments at the bottom of the bottle, the taste gets more complex - some milder malt notes, and a sharper hoppiness.

Osprey87 (1800) - WALES - OCT 14, 2014
Keg at Draft House, 8.5% version. Golden orange, clear, sparkling, big white head. Aroma is mostly sweet caramel, rye spiciness. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is syrupy caramel, boiled sweets, resin, pepper, tangy and dry. Big flavour but it’s a got a little too much toffee apple sweetness for me. Decent anyway.

kappldav123 (5030) - GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Hoppy-fruity aroma. Starts fine malty, mild hoppy, flowery, fruity notes of lemon. Finish less fruity, dry, light bitter notes. Not bad!

Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, red session. 03/05/2014. Clear bright orange coloured pour with a sticky white head. Aroma is nice tropical fruits, resin and peach. Flavour is earthy pine, resin hop, grainy malts with a hint of rye bread spice. Palate is crisp, mineral iron, highish carbonation. Lingering assertive, harshish bitterness.
