Rich’s Rye IPA ICE was created when we took a batch of Rich’s RIPA and froze it to remove 30% of the water. The result was intense. A rye Munich ale, infused with high alpha summit hops makes this beer is the most bitter and hoppy beer ever created at Short’s. The freezing process yields increased maltiness and alcohol by volume.

Not my favorite kind of beer, the hoppy, barleywine like object that clashes between sweet malts and hops. Just decent. Not much rye spice.

Pours a light golden copper with a white head and some good lacing. Smells nice with nice, zesty hops and a bit of malt. Taste brings forward a good amount of hoppy bitterness and some sligt spice. Feel is nice with good carbonation levels. Drinks quite well. I always seem to enjoy what Short’s does with hops. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-11-2010

Golden pour with a small, dense, white head. Lush, resinous pine and grapefruit aroma with some balance of biscuit and toffee and a hint of spicy rye. Lots of pine and fresh grapefruit flavor with a little bit of caramel and toffee. Finishes spicy and peppery with a little dry biscuit and floral, grassy, lingering hop bitterness. Nicely balanced. Creamy, medium body with soft carbonation.

Bottle, great carmel and hop aroma, with some floral component. Taste is bitter a bit or brown sugar. Overall tasty, but nothing special.

EBF. Pours a hazy golden orange body with an off white head. Floral citrus, earth salty fruit a bit like a strong hoppy barley wine. Strong earth tones and some tea like bitterness. Nice.

Draft sample. Pours clear dark golden in color with a medium creamy white head. The aroma was grapefruit and citrus hops, pine, bready caramel malt, and alcohol. The flavor didn’t seem to have much of a malt presence at all. Big grapefruit hop bitterness, pine, and more alcohol. Moderate sweetness with some acidity. Medium bodied. I think I was expecting more from this one.
