COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Echo is a “Rye-PA” at 6.8%, brewed with pale, crystal, carapils, and 30% rye malts, bittered to 60 IBUs, and late-hopped with Simcoe and Centennial Hops. This dark-copper ale combines the citrus kick of the hops with the spicy flavor that comes from using 30% rye. This winter IPA will help you bridge the gap between now and Spring.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Tap at Capones. Pours a mostly translucent copper with a medium creamy off white head that left great lacing. Aroma of pine, floral, bready, rye, can tell the Simcoe is in there and caramel. Flavor of pine, grapefruit, resiny hop flavor, bready and light caramel. Very dry.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. This one combines 2 of my top favorites (Rye and IPAs!). Poured a medium amberish/copper color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of rye, floral, citrus, and bready. Tastes of rye, toasty, citrus, caramel, grains, and bready. Lighter bitter finish.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2009
Draft at Capone’s during Philly Beer Week, then in a 12oz bottle. Pours a clear chestnut color, capped with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is primarily rye and earthy hops, with some dark fruit and caramel in the background. Flavor of earthy simcoe hops, with some rye, pine, grapefruit, and caramel. Medium bodied and fairly easy to drink. Rye hangs out for a long finish, with a bit of a metallic sensation clinging to the palate.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2009
On tap at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours dark amber with a tan head. Nose is rye, malr, and a bit of bread and grass. Flavor is lots of rye with leveling hops and citrus/ pine. Very enjoyable rye beer- relatively light bodied and refreshing.

ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2009
12 oz bottle served in a clear pint glass. Pours a deep ruby amber with a thick, frothy tan head that leaves a complete shading on the glass where the foam previously was. Nose is malts, caramel, and hops. Taste is a pleasant mix between rugged rye characteristics and its hoppy Indiana base. A nice trial that turned out well, especially for someone who doesn’t go crazy for the In-Your-Face hop blow of a traditional IPA.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Draught at Pacific Std. Copper color with a light beige head leaving spots of lacing. Light caramel and rye aroma with floral and citrus hops coming through underneath. Spicy and chewy rye body with a nice tangy sharpness that morphs towards the finish into a citrus hop bitterness--marked by grapefruit and even some tangerine. Rye spiciness appears again as an aftertaste. Great continuity of flavors and well balanced. These "Rye PAs" have become my favorite sub-style.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. Reddish amber body with a two finger off-white head. Lots of citrus on the nose with a touch of biscuit. Very good flavor with lots of pine, citrus, bread, and a tad bit floral. Very tasty.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Draft @ Capone’s: Poured a reddish brown color with a nice head. The aroma was citrus, flowers, pine, spice and hops. The flavor was grapefruit and flowers, with a spicy hop finish. Overall, not as smooth as some IPA’s, but still pleasant to drink.
