BEER INFO

Brewed by:
La Cumbre Brewing Co.
New Mexico, United States
lacumbrebrewing.com

Style: Rye Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A malted magic hop bomb. Rich caramel and toasted malts team up with flaked rye and march to the beat of a big but balancing bitterness only to be overtaken by an onslaught of American hop aroma and flavor. You want a tame and subservient, spineless beer that takes orders well and doesn’t challenge anything or anyone? This ain’t it!

Pours a dark red with a tan head. Smells of spice, pepper, malt, and hops. Tastes of sweet caramel malts, bitter hops, pepper, rye, and spices. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall an incredible rye IPA.

Nice dark amberish/brown color, very hazy. Ample scents of fresh cut garden hose, deep rye and caramel on the nose. Taste is very, very smooth. Hints of mahogany, caramel, rye and a great finish of deep dirt and wet leaves. Medium feel, quite surprising based on the eye. One of my favorite dark"er" beers.

Pours a ruby red with thick white head and sticky lacing. Nose is just loaded with sweetness, malt, roasted nuts, caramel, and hops. Flavor follows nose, just a rich malty roasted goodness with a bitter hoppy finish, this is a wonderful beer, light to medium feel and oh so fun to drink, outstanding.

Good goodness this is a damn fine beer. I've often described Ambers and Reds to the uninitiated as smack-dab in the middle of hop-forward and malt-forward styles, but never before has a beer performed such a delicate - and for my sake, validating - balancing act. Aromas and smells interweave with one another so seamlessly that its hard to tell where the malt characteristics end and the hops begin. There is a molasses kind of sweetness that almost borders on boozy despite a mid-range ABV, and earthy, juniper-like hop bitterness that plays so well with the spiciness of the rye. Wrapping it up now before the nerdom gets questionable and to get back to this helluva beverage.

I bought this beer at the La Cumbre Brewery in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I think it is a very good rye ale.

Look: Semi clear reddish amber with an inch off-white head.

Aroma: nice aroma with roasted malts, rye, caramel, and yeast.

Taste: Very interesting mix of flavors, rye, caramel, lots of hops, piney bitterness, spice, and some whiskey.

Feel: creamy with medium body, quite drinkable despite the high alcohol content.
