COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rye is known to be used mostly in baked goods, but has also historically been used in distilling gins and whiskey, and now, brewing beer. The addition of this nutritious flaked grain is most noticeable at the finish, providing an overall complexity to the beer that’s refreshing, spicy, and crisp. We use the Simcoe and Galaxy hops at the beginning of the boil, and and then Galaxy and Simcoe a second time at the dry-hopping stage to draw out their distinct aromas.

Hazed light gold. Creamy head, flaked rye will do that.Bready aroma, in a doughy not typicality rye spice character. Has some lemon, citrus, mild other citrus. Same in taste, drinks easy like a pale ale. Light caramel, summery beer. Somewhat mild and neutral for ipa, citrus hoppy. Light yet full, easy and bright.

Bottle sent by Schlafly for review. The beer pours a hazy yellow; I’m guessing their house style is light filtering. The head is a bit more sudsy, and pale white. The smell has a full nose of pine resin with a slight bit of tropical fruit, maybe mango, behind. 65 IBUs may not seem overly bitter, and this is not a tongue-burner, but bitterness does work well with the hops’ aromatic qualities. Taste seems pretty light, and is not sticky, but the main aftertaste is malty, with a bit of rye spice. The alcohol doesn’t come in very strong, leaving this as a beer balanced between bitter and sweet.

Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle. A very light pour, with a peach-tinged, golden hue. The head is gigantic and slow to settle. The aroma is sweet and gristy, spicy grass and herbs. This drinks with an interestingly complex swirl of floral hop, herbal spice and a light flourish of sweet fruit. It has a hefty, yet easy-to-drink character. Yummy. (#6594, 5/7/2017)

On tap. Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, rye, and bit earthy. Taste of grapefruit, rye and mild malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Medium body with a nice hop and rye blend.

3.4
thegreenrooster (4518) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2017
Bottle. Pour is a hazy blonde with a large white head. Aroma is a lemon hop with maybe some dry malty backbone. Flavor is a minor hop but this does have a large spicy rye malt aftertaste. This is decent, the rye really comes through in the flavor but this probably needed another hop variety in addition to the 2 that were used.
