3.58/5 rDev -5.8%
22oz bottle (though perhaps not as full as it should be?) served in pint glass. Beer is amber and slightly cloudy and forms no head. Nice citrusy IPA type aroma with a hint of caramelized sugars. Flavor is also like a not-so-pale IPA in profile, with hops forward, and a decent malt balance. This is nowhere nearly as hoppy or floral, but I'm reminded of 90 minute IPA. Rye flavors are pretty subdued, unfortunately. Mouthfeel is substantial and complements the level of the bitter/sweet balance, which is exactly where you want it in a 6.5%, without any deception.
Drinkable and enjoyable if not fantastic.

Stopped in at Brewer's Haven tonight on the way home from work and stumbled onto this new beer.. Paid $4ish...
Label says "Spring Release Hop Rye'It IPA: We like Rye - you like IPA, so we met in the middle and brewed up Hop Rye'It. Flaked and malted Rye give this beer a full mouthfeel and slight spice while generous amounts of dry hopped Crystal finish the beer on a floral note. 'A damn good beer' "
Poured into my slim tulip... 1 finger off-white head atop a slightly hazed orange brew.
Nose is fresh and clean hoppiness .. definite floral notes and a bit of citrus... maybe even some citrus blossom... rye malts are pretty heavy.. crispy with a light toast.
Nice bitterness up front.. pale malt and some dry toast mid palate add just enough sweetness to really make the floral note shine.. background citrus hoppiness... long lingering flowery hops on the finish... very long and fresh.
Body is definitely thicker than a standard IPA... also more "slippery" if that is a good descriptor.. sorta thick, but melts away quickly... interesting... and odd. Very nice.
All 4's... I would go into the .25 increments, but haven't figured it out how to make it jive with my other reviews. :-)

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a thin off-white head with good retention and slippery lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and sweet malt, hints of pineapple. Flavor follows with bright citrus hops, sweet malt and lots of citrus and citrus rind; orange and grapefruit. A very light rye sourness that blends nicely with the citrus notes. Medium bodied with a hint of creaminess. A rather unusual and fun to drink rye beer that has nice IPA influence. Nicely done.

22oz from Fred Meyer in N.Salem. $3.69 Pours a nice dark orange( darker then the usual IPA) colour with a good sized creamy off white head. Fresh piney citric hop aromas..some caramel malt but getting no rye. Again the flavour is good piney/pineapple/grapefruit hops with a smooth caramel backbone..there is maybe a good touch of the rye in the end taste. Nice on the tongue smooth yet complex. Nice IPA but not much rye on show

12oz : tulip
Amber red, with a thick, foamy white head that dissipates fairly quickly and leaves some lacing.
Big citric hop profile in the nose. Faint rye backing. Quite inviting.
The taste is pleasant, citric hops, with more of a balanced caramel and rye balance.
Medium+ body with average carbonation.
A well done, hop-forward rye beer. And while the taste was still enjoyable, it was just not quite as hoppy/flavorful as the nose led me to expect.

10 Barrel Hop Rye-It
A deep hazy amber color. The nose gives a strong hoppyness with notes of yeast and pineapple.
The taste is playing more on the bitters, but they are toned down and balance out very well.
This beer is tasty and a solid choice for the price.

Just ran into this and for 4 dollars I love these guys seasonals. Out of the bottle it has a burnt orange color. Its hazy and the sediment in the bottle tells me this is either unfiltered or centrifuged. Held up to light you get tons of orangish colors and its not allowing me to see the tv. Looks good. When it comes to the smell I get citrus. Sweet hop citrus. Seems like the crystal hops they dry hopped on were a good choice. Wow the taste is balanced. It tastes like is a bit stronger than 6.5% That's totally the rye. As for the bitterness it does not hit you until the end of the pour but its mild. In regards to the hops, the citrusy smell is not so much in the flavor. This is a very good IPA and for a spring seasonal this is no "session beer" that is lacking flavor. Its a full on balanced yet best of both main ingredients. You get the spicy rye characters and the bitterness you normally get in an IPA. This is a winner if you ask me. The mouthfeel is nothing special or out of the ordinary. Its above average. Its what you would expect from an IPA. No more. No less. One thing it has going for it is its not too carbonated yet there is enough to cleanse the mouth. Great Beer. Check it out. I am totally going to try this again. See what happens when its not so fresh. This is not your normal 4 dollar beer. I would pay 6 for it if I did not know any better.
