COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rye Not? Is a rye dominated India Pale Ale, with a radiant orange glow and a strong aroma. Floral hop qualities, amplified by notable rye characteristics, blend together to offer subtle pine fragrances. The rye based theme continues, as the distinctive flavors of this grain intensely stand out. The focus from rye to an intense bitterness happens quickly and lingers into the dry finish.

12 oz. bottle. Appearance is golden amber with an orange hue. There is a paper-thin white head. The aroma is rich grapefruit, other citrus, light pine, and bit of rye spiciness. The taste is similar. However, the rye is more prominent, and there is some bitter hops taste. Very smooth, lightly crisp feel. A very high quality beer.

Hazy apricot with a quickly fading white topper. Aroma of rye, citrus, caramel, pale malts and mild noble hops. Taste is on the grainy side with rye, caramel and pale malts, Kinda bland with a middle of the road bitter finale.

Draft at HopCat in East Lansing. The pour is a medium gold, no real head or lacing. The smell is very hoppy and with quite a bit of hops. The rye comes through on the end of the nose and I’d very prominent in the taste. The hoppyness contributes to the dry finish, and it lingers a tad, just like what I’d want

Intriguing hoppy aroma with a strong rye backbone and complex, lingering mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cpetrone84 (1379) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Pour is hazy copper orange with an off white head. Nose is pungent, tons of orange citrus hops and some floral notes with faint rye backbone. Taste is much spicier, hops are a bit more subdued, notes of grain and some malt underneath. Bitterness lingers through a moderately carbonated finish on a light body.

Huhzubendah (2525) - Washington DC, USA - APR 16, 2013
The beer is golden with clusters of carbonation bubbles. Thick off white head that leaves lace ringlets cascading down the pint glass. The aroma offers citrus, toasted grain, light pine & hops. The flavor is more aggressive / bold than the aroma. Nice showing from the rye malt. Well balanced and drinkable. Toasted grain with some bitter hops in the finish. A tad sweet. Overall, pretty good.
