COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We weren’t trying to be revolutionary in 2002, we just wanted to brew an interesting beer style using extra ingredients we had on hand. The resulting contribution to craft beer’s renaissance, was this rye-centric India Pale Ale. At 85 IBUs, California Sunshine Rye IPA is exceptionally well-balanced with assertive hop bitterness, a toasty, bready malt mouthfeel, and a grassy, dry finish. Enjoy our uniquely original re-imagining of a traditional English style IPA while pondering being the craft beer polymath you surely are. [email protected]

My favorite. Grassy, grainy. Not another pine tree superhop beer. Floral nose, gentle bitterness. A double IPA that is refined and unassuming. love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: honey, malt. Medium intensity Taste: lovely mix of malt, bread, citrus and honey. Notes of grass in the background. Aftertaste is sweet at the beginning and long lasting bitter flavor afterwards ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DruncanVeasey (8485) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Big bottle split (grudgingly) with the missus. Bright, foaming bronze-gold with a tenacious white head. Fresh hop aroma of lemongrass, pineapple jelly, red apple and guava. Fresh hoppy flavour with notes of galangal, flowers, lemon zest and grapefruit. A grapefruity US IPA that actually tastes of grapefruit, not London Pride or peach iced tea. G+T- bitter, botanical linger. Zesty, hop-dry, alpha-drenched stuff with minimal malt flavour: IPA as I like it.

Bomber listed at 7.1% ABV and 85 IBUs from Whole Foods in Folsom, CA. Label only claims to be an IPA (rye centric IPA). Pours copper with a 2.5 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma has that spicy rye aspect. Full bodied. Creamy carbonation. Flavor is definitely rye with a lot of fruit, floral and probably grapefruit rind for hop. This is quite a tasty ale. The carb backbone is clearly present to the finish, and nicely supports all the hop. In the end there’s rye and a bitter hop burn. Excellent.

On tap at Beer 39. Clear amber. Sweet tropical fruit aroma. Taste is spicy grains, fruity hops, with a spicy dry bitter finish. Medium body, smooth.
