BEER INFO

Brewed by:
La Cumbre Brewing Co.
New Mexico, United States | website

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A malted magic hop bomb. Rich caramel and toasted malts team up with flaked rye and march to the beat of a big but balancing bitterness only to be overtaken by an onslaught of American hop aroma and flavor. You want a tame and subservient, spineless beer that takes orders well and doesn’t challenge anything or anyone? This ain’t it!

Alright now. A rye beer. Don't see many of those.

Looks great off the pour. Minimal head though. Nose is resin heavy. Flavor is good. A smooth resin ride on this one too, with spiced tones. Pretty easy to drink. More of a smooth ride than a punch in the mouth. A good intro to the brewery. Up next, Project Dank!

Pours a dark, Amber with a medium head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Tastes is a good balance of saltiness and the spiciness of the rye intermixed with moderate hops. Thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

16 oz can. Pours clear ruby amber with a medium creamy off white head that slowly goes to a thin film and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet rye malts with some fruit and some piney hops.

The flavor is sweet roasted rye grains and nutty caramel with some fruit and a big piney resiny bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice red rye IPA. A little on the sweet side for me.

Part of the series of bottled beers that La Cumbre is now putting out fairly frequently, I had this beer on tap.

The beer came in a Nonic pint glass with a thick, cream-colored, chewy head. The beer was amber brown and transparent. It looked beautiful in the glass.

As I smelled the beer, I found myself searching for the rye character, but I wasn't getting much of it. Mostly, I got a lot of hoppiness, particularly of the resinous, piney nature. I did detect a slight spiciness that may have been the rye, but I also thought the hops might be providing that note.

Drinking the beer was much more of a pleasure, it's just a damn good beer. Lots of fruity, citrusy hops are present and lead to a sweet and creamy finish. There's some sweet malt adding good body and the creamy mouthfeel and only subtle hints of rye adding earthiness and spice. The beer is mildly bitter at the finish as well, but it sort of dances with the sweet creaminess to add an intriguing combination.

As I've said, I enjoyed this beer, but I didn't get as much rye character as I'd like. The beer seemed more like an IPA than a red, but hell I' ain't complaining.
