COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big, unfiltered American IPA built to accompany the big Eastern Winter. Just like an epic bluebird day follows a snow storm, a peppery build from the Rye-malt accompanies glorious hop notes of pine, citrus and fresh grass.

The bold Rye-malt backbone warms the soul, whether after a long day on the slopes with your buds, or just sitting in front of the fireplace at home.

At 60 IBUs, Kind Ryed uses a combination of Apollo, Simcoe, Chinook and Centennial hops to create a drinkable brew that won’t wipe out your tastebuds. The new look bottle label and packaging artwork goes out-of- bounds and embraces the freeriding spirit of our Brewmaster, Mike Gerhart. It’s his bus that adorns the label and his recipe that fills the bottles. Hop on the bus and take a Kind Ryed with us.

Draught @ Albion. Faintly cloudy dark orange with small foamy off-white head, faint orange peel aroma, medium carbonation, bitter hoppy taste, thin body, long bitter grapefruit finish. Decent IPA.

Nice tropical fruit scent with a hint of wheat. Dark hue of a deep gold color. Taste of mango and peach slight pineapple then I rye really comes out at the end.medium body with perfact carbonation. Been rating a lot lately and have been wanting to have that crisp rind taste which OC is known for delivering. Will have to say they are my go to IPA for their styles of IPA and price not to mention the Flavor.

Ernest (7026) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread/seeds/grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers, tangerine), with a light note of dried mango. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A surprisingly good IPA...nice floral-citrus-tropical hop aroma and good malt balance both in nose and mouth. Solid and tasty.

LilBeerDoctor (3581) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, light fruits, apple, floral hops. Flavor of spicy rye malt up front with light fruits and floral hops in the finish. Not super hoppy, almost more like a hoppy pale with its emphasis on the rye malt. Nonetheless it is quite good! 7/4/7/4/15 (3.7/5)

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Pours a very hazy, dark golden orange color with a two finger, pillowy white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Excellent retention, taking a while to settle and leaving sporadic soapy lacing on the way down. Slightly earthy floral hop aroma that’s bursting with juicy citrus and tropical fruit notes. Some resinous oil, fresh cut grassy and sticky pine needle but the sweeter fruit notes really stand out. Prominent grapefruit and citrus rind along with some mango, papaya, pineapple and blood orange. The hop presence is balanced by a faint pale malt presence with hints of bread, faint caramel and grainy graham cracker. Smells very good but could use a stronger earthy/resinous character. Medium body with dry, earthy bitterness lingering over sweet citrus/tropical fruit notes and a faint pale malt backbone into a sweet, slightly dry finish. Some grassy pine needle, spruce tip and sticky resinous oils countered by prominent fruit sweetness and pale biscuit malt. The juicy tropical and citrus fruit notes really stand out with hints of juicy grapefruit, mango, pineapple, curaçao and blood orange. The sweet clementine, naval orange and tangerine notes are strongest providing the hop profile with delicious flavor. Perfectly balanced by a pale malt backbone with hints of biscuit, cracker, a touch of spicy rye and subtle caramel sweetness. This beer could use a little more earthy bitterness but is otherwise an excellently balanced, flavorful beer that is dangerously drinkable.

BillKismet (3658) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Bronzed body with thin silken head. The aroma is dominated my a nice, distinct rye character that melds well into the hop bitterness. Sharply acerbic body rounded out by spicy rye flavors. Unrelentingly bitter and leafy finish.

keepersj12 (3019) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2015
A cloudy amber that some find unappealing. Why? Lots of good stuff floating in there. The aroma is very malty with bread, caramel and floral notes. The flavor is nicely balanced with the malt up front and the bitter hops rounding out. Nice medium body feel.

bnokk (316) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2015
APPEARANCE - dark golden straw in color with good turbidity (thank you rye!) and a cheerful white head. NOSE - strong floral hops immediately. Very pleasing. FLAVOR - good ipa flavor with a bit of an aftertaste I can’t be certain of. NOTES - solid rye ipa.

Another great standby for a cheaper hoppy beer. Great Amber color, nice hop aroma and a good flavor at the start as well as a strong finish
