BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

DATE: July 6, 2016... OCCASION: Greeting Shan after an attempt to score Hamilton tickets...but she is still in good spirits... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... dark, handsomely gradient amber body with ample bubbles... a frothy, off-white head settles evenly and leaves cloudy ribbons... a fresh, light, toasted bread aroma begins, with the spiciness of rye--pepper, lemon and suntan lotion (?!)--with a heaviness towards the dough... the first sip is invigorating, with a medium-bodied, creamy, thickness that is almost chewable... nutty, toasted, and bready, with a lemony citrus kick... nice peppercorn crackle, with a strong back end finish that lingers.... this beer packs a powerful flavor profile without tipping its hand in terms of ABV... an excellent stand-alone that compliments Smuttynose’s portfolio...

Gold amber.

Smell is dank, with skunk and burnt rubber. Taste is largely the same. I've rarely experienced these attributes this potently in a beer.

Even with the pungent and astringent flavors combined with bitter pine, this been somehow remains partly fluffy on the palate.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Darker amber color with a thin off white head.

Smell: Light hops and Malts, hint of citrus.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Bitter hops with hints of Malts and pine notes.

Overall: OK IPA, not my first choice. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to get it again.
