COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle from Systembolag. Pours hazy amber with a big frithy head that sits out thru the session. The aroma is classic american grapefruit piney flavors, but pretty descrete. The taste is bitter and spicy. The citrusy hops and the rye work their combo into a pretty dull bite. I wouldn’t have called it a "brewers reserve", I would have called it a "brewers experiment". Not a favorite.

kappldav123 (5000) - 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!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle courtesy of Summer Secret Santa. Aroma has a distinct rye character with some lighter pale, cracker malt notes. Moderate hop character, fairly citrus forward with lighter notes of tropical fruit and pine resin. Pours a pale, hazy golden orange with some copper hues. Medium sized, slightly off white head of moderate thickness displays average retention. Medium light lacing and faint legs. Flavor is sweet and malty with a nice rye note and some light cracker and caramel. Medium high bitterness balances out the sweetness. Medium notes of citrus and tropical fruit with lighter stone fruit and resin character. Some light alcohol spice in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty decent rye double IPA. A little sweeter than I would prefer but there is some nice hop character that works well with the rye.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2014 Draught @ MCSVAF, Roma; pours hazy, light orange with small, but creamy off white head. Moderate aroma is malty, along with floral and citrus hops and rye spiceness. The taste starts out with exotic fruit hop notes and it’s followed by caramel malts sweetness and rye spiceness, but ands quite bitter and dry. Medium body, soft to lively carbonation. Nice brew!
