COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In craft beer, there are almost as many bad rye puns as there are bad hop puns; Smuttynose is happy to spare you from more of either. Instead, we’ll tell you about our new Big Beer, Rhye IPA. We brewed it because we like drinking hoppy American-style beers and we wanted a chance to brew with rye. The rest, as they say, is history. The result is a 7% hoppy IPA, with rye spiciness and big hop character. This beer will really get under your armor…
The image on the Rhye IPA label is a famous drawing of an Indian rhinoceros by 16th century German painter and printmaker, Albrecht Dürer. Dürer had never seen the creature before and created the drawing based on one deScription and a crudely scribbled sketch.

tfontana (1184) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 29, 2017
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Appearance is mild hazy, light brown/dark orange with minimal sparkle, finger-width off-white foamy head with poor retention and trace lacing. Aroma is caramel and rye malts, earthy bitterness, mild candied sugar. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with slick texture, soft-to-average carbonation, rye spiciness and mix of malty sweet and hop bitter finish. Overall, malt presence is more reminiscent of APA but is good. Balance is present and rye adds interesting feature, as always.
