Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally released as part of our Short Batch Series, our Rhye IPA arose from our desire to play with rye malt. It's built on a Finestkind IPA chassis, with the following changes:

• We tweaked the grain bill adding 30% rye malt and swapped Aromatic malt for C-60. Rye adds a spicy note while Aromatic malt adds a more subtle flavor than C-60 but increases malt aroma.

• We lowered the mash rest temperature a few degrees, giving the final beer less body and more drinkability.

• We jacked up the dry hopping to four times the level of Finest Kind for big hop aroma.

9/11/14...pours a rusty orange amber. Thick pouring white foam. Lots of lacing. Rye tinged pine nose, good aroma. Mellow malt taste bursting into a juicy biting hop. Light sweetness.

Foamy head that settles in a rocky fashion. Leaves plenty of streaky lace on the glass. Dirty gold color with some haze and small particles floating in the glass.

Big caramel malt aroma--mild bittering hop nose. Smooth and inviting.

Far more dry than the smell indicates--the obvious presence of rye. I think this makes the hop more pronounced as well. Dry, nearly astringent finish that creates a very long aftertaste. Neutral body with a heightened level of carbonation.
