100+ IBU, "Citrus, Chocolate, Smooth, Bitterness"

Reuben loves some Rye - while i'm partial to the imperial rye, this is a pretty fierce pint as well. Big spicy rye loaf - not for the faint of heart, bitter citrus, dry cocoa. Paired nicely with a kickass falafel from "A Taste of Istanbul" (312 characters)

Poured into a Reuben's Brew pint glass. Pours a hazy medium chestnut brown with a fine one finger light brown head. Aroma of biscuit malt, rye, slightly nutty with light citrus hops. Flavor is an excellent blend of toasted and biscuit malt with light rye sourness, finishing with satisfying dry malt and lingering citrus hops bitterness. Great mouth feel with light creaminess. A very nice malty ale with a well integrated rye twist. Verging on old ale territory, but bringing in spiciness from the rye. I really liked Reuben's imperial rye IPA, but this is even better, well integrated and interesting. (603 characters)

I really like rye beers, and wish there were more brewed around here, so I'll put my biases up front in this review. And this beer is brimming with "ryeness". The hoppiness that you'd expect from an IPA is pretty understated. Reuben's says this beer has 80+ IBUs, but it didn't seem so to me. If you like a spicy malty beer with a pretty unique flavor profile, you'll like this. (384 characters)

A: Pours a dark molasses colored brown with a dense silky light tan colored head. Looks like a Scottish ale in the glass.

S: Smell is faint but complex with a lot going on. Initially hoppy, finishing with sweet chocolate, caramel, and vanilla.

T: Hop bitterness upfront. Sweet Caramel, toffee, and vanilla.

M: Medium body. Moderately light carbonation. Creamy. Oily. Bitter with some boozy warmth.

O: Definitely a unique beer. Drinks much more like a winter warmer than an IPA, as noted in the name on the bottle. Very complex, but not very reminiscent of an IPA. Glad I got to try this one. (595 characters)

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass. The label says "Roasted Rye IPA" and "winter warmer India pale ale". This beer evidently is trying to fit a lot of styles in!

Appearance: chocolatey amber-brown with a light haze and a relatively strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of frothy tan foam. I like the look of it!

Smell: toasty and lightly spicy with earthy and citrusy hops. The rye underneath really gives the hops a bite. These guys know their way around rye, I'll tell you that.

Taste: toasty and biscuity, almost like an amber ale, but with that piquant rye character and a fairly high hop bitterness. This type of thing is not usually my style, but I find it working for me now. Maybe because it's 38 degrees outside despite being 3 in the afternoon? Who knows.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a good creaminess for an IPA.

Overall: it doesn't taste roasted, it's too malty for an IPA, but it is definitely a good rye beer. Absolutely worth a try if you like this particular grain. (1,033 characters)

Appearance - Pours a clear amber color with minimal head. Makes a very nice "glow" in the glass.

Smell- my lowest rated attribute of this one, don't really get a ton on the nose, isn't overly pungent, a bit of sharp rye comes through almost like the edge of a young bourbon.

Taste - drinks excellently clean and smooth. Something that if you had on tap available in the fall at a football tailgate would make your afternoon. If you want to talk about balance this beer has it in spades. Could drink these for hours.

Mouthfeel- creamy and extremely easy on the palette. Just the right amount of carbonation to make it pleasant , but at the same time not boring.

Overall- did a flight at the brewery today of several o Reuben's offerings and for me this was a standout among many excellent offerings. Will most definitely be back soon to have some more! (867 characters)
