COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Better tasting than a speeding bullet. krypton will be hard not to drink in a single gulp. Spicy rye malt and big citrus hop flavours make krypton the perfect refreshment in your fortress of solitude. Hop, hop and away!

JoeZasada (285) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a frothy lasting white head, decent lacing. Powerful hop aroma, floral and citrus nots. Taste: quite hoppy, moderate bitterness, notes: floral, citrus. remains steady with the hops as it warms. Medium body. Finishes with a grassy bitterness. This one is all about the hops; lots of flavour but not overpowering on the bitterness. Definitely a tasty brew!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Pours a hazy golden colour with decent size off White head lacing down most of the glass. Aroma is pine, citrus, lightly spicy rye, and a bit of malty sweetness. Flavours of pine, spicey rye, zesty grapefruit and a bit of residual sweetness giving great balance. So good!

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Co-op Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB on 04/26/2012. Colour: Dark yellow and traces of orange, with slight cloud and medium spotty white head. Nose: Wha...? Dominant with spaghetti and tomato sauce? Odd! A touch of dirty dish towel then moves back again to lots of tomato. There is a pleasent grain-caramel background that shows up late. Nice complex nose. Taste: Light sweet, medium-high bitter, light sour. Immediate surge of perfumey bitterness and then molds into a sweet and sour pine. The pasta returns, but this time showing the soft rye grain as its makeup. Finally, flowery hops settle into a long finish. Doors blown off - great beer.

Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head. Amazing aroma bold and hopy. citrus and slightly musky, I assume that is the rye. Rich creamy mouth feel, very clean crisp and bright. citrus with great body and malt character. I love this beer!!

Reimer96 (1161) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a clear golden orange with a nice thin frothy white cap that leaves tons of sticky lacing in this goblet. Aroma of pine and grapefruit up front with some malty sweetness and a lemon/lime type finish. Taste is pine and grapefruit up front, then the rye malts kick and give it light sweet and grassy/herbal finish with a long lasting bitterness. Big carbonation brings out full flavor in this baby and makes it dance I am your tongue for as long as you let it.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle courtesy of a judging pack from the Canadian Brewing Awards. Very pale straw-gold colour wiht a tight white head. The aroma is awesome - bright peppery, resiny nose. A little bit of spice and a lot of juicy hop fruitiness. Lemony citrus and a nice clean bitterness. Really lovely brew - completely quaffable.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver; the Hopbox
Hazy blond color. Extremely nice aroma, strong, grassy and citrusy, also earthy (manure) later. The mouthfeel is overall dry, but with a reasonable body presence; there is dry toffee flavor; immediately followed by a blasting bitterness, very resiny (reason for the dryness too); "elegance" has not been invited to the party. The final is a bit too much, harsh.
Extreme; the dry malt/toffee body is well done, the hopping is rather uncontrolled. But overall it’s an excellent beer.

I searched around RateBeer for Rye Pale Ales and saw they’re classified under a multitude of styles. I wish the site added more categories; I’d love to help with that. Anyhow this was my favourite from the hop box. The mouthfeel was lively which bubbled up with a lively citrus flavour to make me feel I was beatboxing with my burps. Finish was on the herbal side, and by that I don’t mean weed I mean the kind of herbs you eat.

TripleX (5) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 18, 2012 does not count
A twist from the barley malt only IPA. The back bone is still hoppy and bitter like what you would expect from an IPA but not overpowering. Phillips handles the rye malt with finesse -- adding a unique grassy, Japanese green tea like nuance to the beer.
