COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Bomb? Sure. Malted magic? Yep. Spicy Rye cacophony? Absolutely. Rich caramel and toasted malts team up with flaked rye and march to the beat of a big but balancing bitterness only to be overtaken by an onslaught of American hop aroma and flavor. You want a tame and subservient, spineless beer that takes orders well and doesn’t challenge anything or anyone? This ain’t it!

Sampled at UCBC Wolpertinger 2018 - It pours red with an off white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit and toasted malt - nice balance. It has a medium body with semi-sharp carbonation. The taste has dry malt, spice, pine and spicy rye. Solid.

So with La Cumbre you usually get a fine brew and a very interesting label. My 16 oz can of Red Ryeot is no exception. Bought at Trader Joe's in Santa Fe in a four pack and carried home. It needs delivery in a glass to appreciate. Into my .47 liter New Belgium tasting glass it goes. A dark red-amber body shows up with a heroic light tan head that appears to lace nicely. The scent is definitely hoppy. A drink brings pine needles, hay, citrus and something grainy, must be the rye. Not exciting at first but it gets better as it goes. A very nice, lingering bitterness at the end. Maybe not the equal of Elevated but still well worth it.

Kind of murky-looking, dull amber. Thin head. The aroma has a lot of rye and crystal malt...you knew it would be chewy and it is. On the palate, clean, chewy. Light alcohol, heavy rye, earthy hops, medium bitterness. Not my type of beer but seems to hit where it aimed.

Can shares by Kyle, thanks! Pours a clear red with an amber hue with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a lot of sweet grains and rye with grass and a touch of pine supporting.

00mL can, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out earthy malt, some spicy rye and bready malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with earthy malt, spicy rye, light piney hops and bready malt. Spicy, herbal hops on the finish, with a dry body. Very nice.
