IPA - Rye
The Rye India Pale Ale (IPA), also seen as RyePA or RIPA, is a decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong medium gold to light reddish-amber American IPA, showcasing modern American and New World hop varieties and rye malt. The balance is hop-forward, with a clean fermentation profile, dry finish, and clean, supporting malt allowing a creative range of hop character to shine through. Rye malt character should be noticeable and contributes to a dry finish. Drier and slightly spicier than an American IPA. Bitterness and spiciness from rye lingers longer than an American IPA. Does not have the intense rye malt character of a Roggenbier. "Imperial" and "Session" variants are generally closer-related to the base substyle and should be listed with them.
