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.

At the Brewery tap house. Pretty decent IPA. Strange that I wasn’t picking up the rye as much as I have in other rye beers but it could have been the strength of the hops. Serving: Tap

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thick white head. Citrus hops with a lot of pine resin in the nose. Flavor has a nice rye dryness along with those piney hops and a slightly sweet and sticky finish. [9/12/15]

May I just say this is an excellent beer with pizza? Big citrus blast upon pouring and the rye gives it a spicy bite. The Saugatuck marketers might say "delicate balance," but this ale provides a bold punch. Poured from a bottle because, thankfully, Saugatuck now has limited WI distribution.

arkurzynski (1884) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Deep amber. Nose of dank citrus and mild pine with some rye and caramel malt. Flavor is boozy citrus bitterness, rye malt, toasted malt, and light caramel. Lingering citrus and booze. A touch of diacetyl. Decent.

Solid well balanced. Fruity at first with with wheat and mild hoppy bitter at the finish. I’m a fan but nothing earth shattering.

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 (14562) - 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 (4605) - 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 (4751) - 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.
