RATINGS: 11   MEAN: 3.37/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.26/5   ABV: -
By using an exact amount of rye, a grain seldom found in micro-brewed beers, the RyePA acquires its signature taste. Made with four varieties of US Pacific Northwest hops and a generous amount of specialty malts, this beer offers a complex malt/hop flavor that is both aggressive and well balanced.

"i don’ think this beer has enough Rye to be classified as a rye beer. Either way, it doesn’t work. same generic nose and flavor as the rest, slightly higher hop content, and you can’t taste the rye...you can only tell it’s there by the dryer finish."

Draft into a 20-oz. glass at The Library Sports Grille & Brewery in Laramie, Wyo., on Nov. 23, 2012 for ?????. Cloudy honey orange with 1 ½ fingers of khaki white head that stayed around for quite some time. Good thick retention all-around. Smelled honey, sweet sugary floral hops, pale wheat malts and slight lemon grass. Tasted honey, rye, skunky malts, lemon, floral hops with a big bitter finish. Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt bitter finish. A good beer to start out with, which turned into three more. Was tempted to up the ratings on a few of the categories now that I’m looking at it two days later, but I need to keep it the way it was.

adnielsen (10374) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Tap @ Library Laramie. Pours a bit hazy dark orange appearance with an off white head. A bit spicy, maple, bitter, herbal aroma. Somewhat spicy, somewhat fruity, citrusy flavor. Kind of weird. Not incredibly bad but maybe my least favorite rye pa I’ve ever had.
