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.

Der typisch intensive Hopfenantrunk weist starke Roggenaromen auf, die den Hopfen dunkel erscheinen lassen. Auch im Mittelteil steht das Getreide im Vordergrund, würzig, rund, intensiv. Wenig zitrus, viskos, malzig-süßlich. Zum Ende dunkler, dicht, sehr würzig. Ein gutes Bier, dass durch die deutlich vorhandenen Roggenoten einen ganze eigenen und interessanten Geschmack erhält. 10/13/11/13/12/13

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.

Really low-budget packaging on this one. 12 oz bottle. I enjoyed the Wild Ride IPA, hopefully this one is similar. It pours a very reddish color for an IPA. It has a frothy white head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The smell is super sweet and malty, there is some citrus in form the hops, but it smells like a malt bomb. The flavor thankfully is a lot better than the smell. Isn’t an insanely hoppy brew but it does have some nice elements. Up front it is sweet, tropical and citrusy, and it finishes with a dry piney bitterness that really lingers and keeps you coming back for more. It has an alcoholic bite to it as you go, but it isn’t cumbersome. I was worried by the smell and appearance, but this one is a pretty solid double ipa.

(12oz bottle courtesy of jcnd9803!) Pours a hazy copper with off-white head. Loads of carbonation. Aroma has lots of malt sweetness, caramel, spice from the rye, and roasted banana. Taste is sweet with molasses/dark caramel being prominent. Spice and bitterness are present as well. Medium to full bodied with a thcik texture. This is a nice IPA and one that is quite strong for a regular ipa. Thank Jon!

12oz bottle. Toffee orange-brown with a soapy, patchy beige head. A pretty soild effort, with some respectable piny hop tones. The rye fills out the beer, giving it some nice depth and balancing out the resinous hops. Crisp and bitter. Caramel toffee malt tones, sugary gingerbread rye tones. A solid offering from Sand Creek.

Sand Creek? WOW. This is the best beer from them I’ve ever had. Huge piney hop aroma along with a distinct spiciness. Flavors are likewise amped-up...huge PNW pine and citrus hopping, really intensely spicy rye notes, robust caramel and toffee malt sweetness. Just an awesome IIPA (despite the current designation) and really a big surprise. Wonderful fruity flavors, saved from cloying sweetness by both the intense PNW bitterness, and the really big rye spiciness. Just great!

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Hazy orange with a thin off-white head that quickly fades away leaving a sheet of lace. Aroma of grains, heavy rye, citrus, lemon, earthy hops and is balanced out nicely by the sweet malt. Taste is stellar with the rye, hops and malt forming a nice union. Caramel, rye, citrus and pine notes make up the bulk of the flavor. Moderate bitterness and no real taste of alcohol. The best yet from Sand Creek.

This beer is dark brown in color with a head that dissipates fairly quickly. It has that traditional (and wonderful) IPA taste and aroma, but the added rye seems to give it a little more flavor and depth than some. I enjoyed this beer, but there are numerous other IPA’s that I would pick up before this one.

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.
