COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewer’s Reserve. Get hoppy with this Imperial IPA. Hop In Yer Rye is bursting with flavor and complexity. A predominantly rye malt profile provides a unique backbone, matched perfectly with the delicate balance of bittering and aroma hops.

Cloudy, light amber. Thick, offwhite head. Aroma has rye up front with hoppy notes. Oily, smooth mouthfeel. Flavour has more rye, solid hoppy bitterness, something woody. Nice one.

MiP (13788) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle, 8.0%. Slightly plasticky aroma, sweetish and papery. Grey amber colour. Very big stable off-white head. The flavour has a sourish hop note, hint of salt and a late liquorice (?) aftertaste. Creamy finish.

Bamsen78 (3403) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle @ Hoppy Advent Race in Space, Sønderborg. Pours hazy amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of grain, malt and yeast, with fruity notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with distinct but non-aggrassive notes of rye and yeast, followed by sweetish, fruity touches. Bitter and rough aftertaste with estery hints. A very good beer for the style.

cheap (4203) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Slight haze on a darker yellow beer, there’s stuff in teh bottom of the bottle. Big puffy head. Sight volatile aroma. First taste is this big mouth coating resiny kick in the face. Yes, from the first swig this stuff is soaking bitter volatile soapy stuff. Very difficult and punching lasting big giant dull surprizeer. WEW! Turpentine thickness in the back of my throat. This taste is going to be with me for awhile. Yes, its 8% and you know it, no bones about it. Not impressed, its in the double IPA style I think.

Hazy deep orange - gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Fine carbonation. Spicy rye malts, very rye indeed. Little tangy malt cream. Hops are pine and bitterish orange. A sweet floralness contrasts with hop spice. Light semi dry finish. An interesting and very rye forward beer, nice!

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2014
Half pint from keg at Craft Beer Co in Islington. Patchy, pearl white head leaving dotted spots on the glass. Unclear apricot coloured body. Dried fruity aroma, mid-sweet. Blended taste profile of raisin, bready malts, peaches, and pumpkin. Malt-fruity ending. Fresh and soft in the mouth. Rather easy to drink. Pleasing (London 23.09.2014).

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2014
Flaske. Gulorange let diset øl. Parfumeret humlen duft med en god del citrus, men den parfumeret slags. Smagen er fyldig igen parfumeret citrus. Rigtig fin øl men lidt for megen alkohol til rigtig at ringe

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
September 7, 2014 - on draught at Craft Beer Co (Islington). Hazy orange, large and lasting fluffy off-white thick head. Strong aroma - alcohol, resin, quite fruity and malty behind that - borderline barleywine. Taste - oh yeah, rye for sure, and alcohol, but really well balanced - lively, medium-long sneaky-bitter finish - this one would put you face down in the gutter quite easily. You’d be singing, too.

@ Havregatan. Bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen (33 DKK). Malty, fruity and hoppy with caramely notes, grapefruit, sweet, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and hoppy.
