COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Frank’s Wild Ryde. It’s a double India Pale Ale made with rye malt. The beer is named for Frank Oderbolz, whose father, Ulrich, founded the Oderbolz Brewery in 1856, on the site of the present Sand Creek brewery. Frank Oderbolz died in 1911 in a boating accident involving a wild ride over the local dam on the Black River.

bottle pour. cloudy copper in color. medium head with some light lacing. aroma is of bitter hop’s, caramel and rye. bitter taste on the tounge with the rye very present. somewhat harsh on the palate. odd astringent aftertaste. most likely wouldn’t try again.

The was courtesy of Doran. Thanks. Pours a cloudy rich copper with an off-white head. Great retention and excellent lacing. Nose of roasted malts, rye, and some citrus. Medium plus in body. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is very rich and the rye is perfectly balance with the rest of the malts. Great beer.

It poured a hazy orange color with an off-white head. The aroma was of grains, rye, citrus, lemon, earthy hops and sweet malts. The taste was of rye, hops and malts. It had a moderate bitterness and a little alcohol. Decent.

valpoaj (613) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Pours a murky, dirty orangish brown with tons of particulates - medium off white head settles quite quickly, but leaves a thick film. Aroma is bready and yeasty, rye is prevalent as well...hint of resinous hops. Flavor is quite unique - loads of malt (and yes, there is most certainly rye working here), lots of bitter hop flavors - some with a very fruity feel, but the resiny hops are still at the forefront. Spice and a slight sourness also playing in the background - very intriguing. Palate is heavy and quite thick for the style, oily and lingering - 9% - holy heck! All in all, this was a beer I’m happy to have tried, would try again, but would not really want more than one...yep, that kind of beer!

wlajwl (3546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Aroma is rye, spices and medium sweet malts/bread. The flavor is rye malts, mildly spicy and sweet and a bitter and tangy finish.

Finhead (1111) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2012
A cloudy orange-brown pour with a frothy off-white head. The light aroma has notes of herbs and pine. It has a light body with oily texture and average carbonation. There is some mild sweetness in the taste, but it finishes moderately bitter and dry.

jmagnus87 (2219) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy dark orange with about a finger of thick white head. Aroma of bready malt and some grassy and herbal hops. Taste is medium bitter. Resin and herbs with a little bready malt. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. I’d drink this one again.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Sweet 12oz bonus bottle courtesy of GhostFace, you the man Neil, pours clear copper with thick gold edges and off white head. The aroma offers up plenty of bold pine hops, thicker sticky hop resin and what must be rye notes not far behind. Wow! Ok, yes. This is a wild ride where the taste delivers big pine hop notes that pulse with bitter resiny notes and then pulling up twangy spicy rye. Wow wow. This is loaded with pine hoppy goodness. Well done, I dig it. Big bold bitter yummy IPA.

Not half bad. Barely half good. A bit hoppy, slightly aromatic and the like.

sloth (2399) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Medium sized white head, retention is good as is the lacing, thick and coating. Hazy copper appearence. Nose of some sweety malts, light caramel, grain with a laid back spicey, piney hop. Body is almost medium, lil oily, lil resiny with a gentle carbonation. Somewhat dank hoppy flavors, lil pissy, grapefruit and earth. Malts are lightly sweet and grainy with just a hint of that rye spiceyness. Bigger finish than expected, good bite, lil fruity. alcohol making itself known as it warms. Decent.

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
12 oz bottle. Foggy orange brown with a snowy white head. Nose is orange, caramel and flowers. I would not have guessed rye. Medium body with a buzz. Taste provides a nice punch of rye that amps up the bitter hops. Grapefruit, lemon pith and toffee with an earthy finish.
