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.

Nilz (510) - Glasgow, - FEB 14, 2013
Growler from the brewery, nice looking somewhat cloudy gold with a white foamy head. Aromas of hops and malt. Taste is an abundance of hops and citrus notes. I rather liked this Guy!

Can (473 ml) at home, split 2-ways. Thanks to mathieuc for this one! Clear golden with a medium white head, some retention, leaving some lacing. Aroma is a bit dull with floral hops, rye pepperiness and hints of fruits. Taste is similar with floral presence, peppery rye, light resin and moderate bitterness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel. Peppery rye finish that lingers a bit. The mouthfeel is nice and the beer is not too heavy, but I thought it was a bit dull. The aroma isnt explosive at all and the rye takes too much place for my liking.

Pours a very clear golden with a medium white head that leaves nice patterns on the glass. Nose is of piny hops with a moderate fruit character in the back. Taste is pretty much a continuity with a moderately high bitterness. Not too sweet at all. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is a oily. A fine rye IPA!

AleRider78 (1000) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
Pours a pretty small layer of bubbly head that just leaves a ring inside of glass and has a typical golden appearance. Has ok lacing. Aromas of grains, nuts, citrus hops and a bit bready and mild corn scent. Flavours are largely hop influenced, citrus blend of oranges, mandarins and a dash of lemons. Some notes of rye comes through, as well as some hints of caramel and sweet malts. Well balanced hops and malts fusion. Mild creamy and puckering mouthfeel, a little bitter. Medium bodied. Smooth and goes down easy at 6.2%abv. Pretty good stuff.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Grapefruit, flowers and spicy rye thrive in this bubbly New World IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A large head of foam settles atop the hazy blond.
-Hop character is rich and complex.
-Juiciness is only diminished by the relatively high carbonation.
-Resinous bitterness is moderate for the style. This one focuses on aroma and flavour.
-Cereals offer lightly honeyed sugars.

RickTheRick (949) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2016
Un beau visuel doré penchant sur l'orangé remplit le verre en compagnie d'une mousse épaisse et compacte. Des vagues poivrées jouent avec des parfums enivrants d'agrumes pour former un bouquet très invitant. La texture est moelleuse en bouche et le seigle est fusionnel avec les saveurs fruitées et la délicate amertume. Magnifique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

electrotype (655) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
Un peu trop timide au nez, les notes sont toutefois intrigeantes... Le seigle loeuvre, probablement! Le liquide est trs joli, dune dor assur, et la petit mousse se veut prsque crmeuse. En bouche, cest agrable, le seigle est ici aussi prsent, mais il manque le punch auquel je mattendais. Cest un tantinet trop mince mon got, seule la mousse semble avoir une consistance respectable. Cela dit lamertme est bien dose et lalcool est, encore une fois pour BTP, merveilleusement bien cach.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2016
Pours a medium lasting foamy head atop a cloudy orange body. Nose of rye and hops. Very bitter, good rye flavour. Nicely balanced. Another great beer.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
473 mL can. Beautiful orange-copper colour, beautiful white head, beautiful pour. Mild, soft, sweet citrus in the nose, with a hint of rye spice underneath. The rye is a little muted in the flavour as well, but its there. Not to the extent Id like, though, Its more of an aftertaste. The bitterness is more APA than IPA, but that makes the beer frighteningly sessionable.

Franckg (1575) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2016
Canette sans date achete il y a 2 semaines. Robe dore avec un mince col de mousse qui laisse une petite dentelle collante. Armes dagrumes, malt lgrement caramlis, petite rsine de pin, poivre moulu. En bouche, beaucoup dagrumes (pamplemousse, ananas, citron, orange), malt de seigle poivr, conifre. Finale plutt sche domine par du zeste de pamplemousse et du poivre. Texture huileuse et corps mince. Bire de seigle bien construite ou les houblons sont trs bien intgrs.
