Poured from growler into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear amber color with a two finger head of white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a grapefruit hop smell mixed with a moderately potent rye bread aroma. Along with these aromas are some quite nice smells of a tropical fruit nature with some tangerine and mango along with some other hop aromas of a pine nature. Overall the aroma has a nice blend of hop, rye, and fruity smells.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice smooth and moderately sweet flavor, with it being as a mix of a lighter grapefruit hop, some fruity flavors of tangerine and mango and a nice somewhat doughy and bready flavor. As the taste advances the rye that was detected in the nose starts coming to the tongue, mixing with the fruity-sweet and grapefruit nicely. Some flavors of lemon come to the tongue around the middle of the taste being accompanied by some flavors of herbs and a lighter flavor of pine. The pine grows stronger to the end with it replacing some of the grapefruit hop that was present upfront. Along with the increase in the pine, there is also an increase in the fruity flavors of the brew, and with a slight increase in the rye flavors, one is left with a pleasant sweet tropical fruity rye bread flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. These characteristics are quite nice for blending the sweeter tropical fruits with the blend of hop and the rye to make for a rather smooth and easy drinker.

Overall – A very enjoyable rye IPA with a good balance of fruitiness, rye, and hop. Quite enjoyable.

Southern Rye IPA is a very balanced IPA. Good balanced flavors, but still strong. A very nice beer.

Brewed exclusively for Philly Beer Week with Steiner Experimental 0526 hops. Had in a pint at PJs Blue Bell. Pours a clear amber with nice lacing. Lots of grapefruit in the nose. Tastes of rye and grapefruit. Well balanced with a solid medium body. Overall a very enjoyable RyePA. Maybe surpassing Red's Rye as my favorite rye beer.
