The Old Dock Street Brewery, LLC "Dock Street Rye IPA"
12 fl. oz. brown glass bottle, "092117A" and sampled on 040618
$1.83 @ Cherry Hill Liquor, Wine & Beer (Wegmans), Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: Nice label with a sailor riding atop a shark. 6.8% abv and 64 IBUS. 20% rye. Sounds good. Ahh, and it looks good too. It's poured a slightly hazy deep copper/chestnut brown colored body beneath a finger-thick head of densely creamy off-white foam. Very nice. The aroma displays caramelish malt with a hint of spiciness from the rye. I'm not sure here the hops are. The neck label states that it's "... brewed with columbus, simcoe and amarillo hops." but I'm not finding them. That's OK, if the hops were there you wouldn't be able to smell the rye so it's a fair trade-off. On to the flavor... more caramel and rye, and some hops. I get the orange-like character of the Amarillo lingering in the dry finish along with a swirl of spiciness. It's a bit piney and herbal as well. 64 IBUs? Yeah, that seems right, it's a solid bitterness but there's a lot of malt there that it's got to balance as well, and of course the spiciness of the rye helps. Looking back there's a thin but almost solid sheet of lace covering the glass from where I began to where I'm at now, which is about a third of the glass. Not bad, points for that. What have I missed? Mouthfeel. Medium bodied and crisp. Not too crisp, but more than just gently crisp. Probably a pretty standard 2.5 to 2.6 volumes of CO2. It's nice, I like it. The rye gives it a lot of character, and the citrusy hops are refreshing against it. Well done all around and worth trying to be sure.

It pours fairly dark for an IPA, with a frothy head and an aroma that is nicely balanced between piney hops and sweet maltiness. The flavor profile is similar to the nose with the bitterness being relatively prolonged.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of citrus, rye. Taste is sharp rye, spicy, pepper stands out, minty hops, none of the citrus in the aroma, fairly bitter. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

7/11/16. Very good. Floral & citrus hops with prominent rye. I could swear there are tea leaves steeping in this. Dark-bread denouement.

Color is a nice medium brown, aroma is very malty, rye, taste is smooth, getting no hop flavor only rye and malt, no aftertaste. Overall a nice beer, just not my kind of IPA.

I have visited Dock Street Brewery & Restaurant in west Philadelphia on numerous occasions and I have taken away some of their large format bottles, but it was only recently when The Friendly Greek Bottle Shop here in Lancaster put some of their 12-fl. oz. bottles out as singles that they registered on my radar.

From the bottle: "An aggressively hopped American India Pale Ale brewed with columbus, simcoe and amarillo. The use of 20% rye gives this ale a unique dry and spicy character."

Another bottle, another Pop!, another day at Chez Woody, Rye-t? Wrong! My Achilles heel is rye, which is why I have numerous bottles of rye whisky here and very few of any other distilled spirit. I am VERY anxious to get this one going. A heavy-handed pour netted two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, tawny head with good retention. Color was Dark Brown to Very Dark Brown (SRM = > 27, < 34) with NE-quality clarity and Deep Amber highlights. Nose smelled of black pepper and spearmint/peppermint and man, was my mouth watering! Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was spectacular with a full-frontal assault of black pepper and an unidentifiable mintiness on the tongue and in the mouth, filling my sinus cavity & making me yearn for the next wave to hot the beachhead. Finish was dry, cool, dry and minty. I felt like I had just brushed my teeth and used fluoride rinse since it was so minty and clean. Swoon!

Bottle of unknown age at Red Owl into a tulip. Pours an amber bronze with 1+ fingers of medium density khaki head that left nice leaving. Nose is piney, plenty of Simcoe coming through. Taste has plenty of pine, and some spiciness. Finish lingers a bit, as I've found with most rye beers. Mouthfeel is medium body and similar medium carbonation. Very nice rye IPA. I'd have again, but not more than one.
