COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rye Guy is a West Coast style IPA that uses a ton of rye malt as part of the all-Canadian grain bill. American hops give it distinctive citrus and pine notes. The result is a crisp, full-bodied beer that is surprisingly sessionable for 52 IBUs.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2015
Pours a hazy copperish amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of spicy rye malts, floral hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, passionfruit, guava and some sweet pale malts. Taste is grapefruit hops, spicy rye malts, light pine and tropical hop flavors on the finish with a smooth balanced bitterness throughout along with the rye spiciness. Best rye ipa Ive had to date.

Plenty of pine on the nose with some citrus notes. Tastes of pine, orange peel and rye spiciness. Sweet bitter finish but overall light in body. Tasty

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2015
Growler. Pours pale gold with a thick head of white foam that laces nice. Aromas of gently spicy rye, toasty grain, big citrus zest, pine and some minor perfumey, floral tones. Bone dry, verging on thin, with a lasting bitter backbone. Moderate to full bodied with average carbonation. Leaves me wanting something a little more, but I cant pinpoint what.

Great citrus punch from the hops with a great subtle spiciness I love from the rye. Lots of candied citrus peel, semi sweet malts, and spicy rye. A great beer.

mabel (8735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
[5901-20131006] Growler. Herbal grainy aroma. Slightly hazy, light brown body with a quick foamy white head. Grainy herbal hops continues in the flavour. Medium body. Good, easy to drink. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5
Overheard: "Logistically, you make a lot of sense."

Un cruchon avec Simon. Merci! Cuivre est la robe. Belle mousse et dentelle assez fine mais bien prsente. Le nez est granuleux, fruit par ses houblons, aromatis par le seigle, doux avec ses notes caramliss et piqu par des aiguilles de pin. Le got est laffaire des houblons et du seigle. Les saveurs dagrumes et de conifres sont aussi poivres par les crales. Cest bien bon. Au palais, le corps est huileux tandis que les bulles sont fines et explosives. La finale est poivre et amre comme le seigle peut si bien le faire. Facile boire. IPA de seigle bien excute.

HippyHop (620) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
On tap at Lieutenants Pump. Pour is cloudy dark gold with a finger of creamy cap. Good retention but not much lacing. Nose is tons of fresh hops: tropical fruit, citrus, a bit of pine, along with a bit of bready malt. Taste follows perfectly, with a really nice pine/bitter grapefruit finish. I didnt pick up as much rye flavour/spice as I wouldve liked, but its still got a solid malt character, with a great hop profile. Very nice.

Howler to tulip Apricot, grapefruit, flowers, a little booze, and celery. Light amber, creamy bright white head. Hops, spruce, a little pine and pepper.

Ferris (14380) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Growler - Grapefruit, nectarine and a nice fruity sweetness. Clearish gold with a decent white head. Huge pithy bitterness, leafy hope and refine. Pretty decent.

Growler from Pushkinwow, thanks bud. Golden amber pour, with light white head. Aroma, tropical fruit, lemon citrus, lots of fruit. Taste is citrus up front, light grassy tones, mild spice from the rye finish, crisp clean finish. Really solid.
