on-tap into pint glass at Yard House downtown Denver
A - Dusty light khaki head, glass clear deep red/brown slightly purple color... beautiful and making me thirsty 5
S - Floral & citrus with a slight spice & pine accents 4
T - solidly smooth beer, very slightly sweet start, progress to rye/hop then straw with a moderately bitter finish all in great balance 4.5
M - I enjoyed the moderate carbonation with an overall light mouthfeel for the appearance 4.5
D - a very enjoyable IPA/rye beer, I certainly will be consuming more of this 5
Makes me wonder what other Bear Republic beers I am missing.
This is truly a world-class beer, Bravo BR!

Despite it's tacky looking label, the inexpensive Hop Rod Rye is a formidable ale that hits both levels of hops and malt and issuing a nice flavor profile. The micro sediment is barely noticeable in its nice amber tone. And even though I was the dumbass who sniffed this one too close and got a nostril full of head to bring some water to my eyes, I am not judging the "smell" because of this. The scent is light, semi-sweet, and gives but a hint of what the flavor really can bring. For the price and the availability, the Hop Rod Rye is definitely worth its merit. . . Just don't snort the damn thing. . .

Not going to give the same ole type of review for Bear Republic's Hop Rod Rye. No way! This is my most favorite beer in all the lands. From the opening aromas of rye and hops gently wafting into the air, to the wonderful dark pour and oh so wonderful rocky, creamy, off white head that stays with you like a best friend, and leaving the most wonderful lace, to the malty/bready/caramel rye flavor and truly perfect balance of hops and carbonation, to the finish that begs you to take another sip, this beer is king. Bear Republic is a brewer that has never let me down. Hop Rod Rye is hoppy rye heaven in a bottle!
