Our Rye-Pale Ale, a unique twist on the popular IPA style, is a highly hopped ale using Columbus and Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest and a blend of grains, including malted rye. Adding rye malt to the ale creates a distinctive malt profile with a hint of spiciness. This brew finishes hoppy and rich, our most bitter ale!

    Color is a fairly average amber with a decent white head. Aroma is not strong but fairly hoppy and has a firm malt/rye component. Flavor is only somewhat hoppy, mainly malty and rye-ish, not really like an IPA at all, and only slightly bitter. Texture is fairly tingly. OK, but not worth seeking out.

    Okay, lets see what the macro-breweries have learned that most of the real beer world has known for awhile. This one a hazy amber colored beer. A small, frothy textured, off white colored head rises. Stays around for awhile, eventually settling into a soapy ringlet and fluffs on top of the body. Bready malt and lighter citrus hops rise to the nose. If this is an IPA, I’m not getting it in the nose. Light bodied. Light creaminess. The hops come out in the tasting. Citrus, but not as sharp as you’d expect from the better IPA’s. It’s okay. It’s drinkable. But that’s about it.

    Strange malt aroma, with some old hops present, body was orange/ amber, no heda or lace. Flavor was kinda off some hops were present, and i couldnt find the rye, the finish was bitter and it wasnt really enjoyable.

    This beer pours an orange-amber color with a small white head. The aroma is more malty than most IPAs I've had. The taste is citrusy and malty with a good bitter bite on the back of the tongue. Overall, a really good mass produced rye beer and IPA.

    What a surprise! About time AB takes a stab at a mass produced IPA. Pour is copper with a small white head. Some citrusy hops in the aroma but well balanced with malt and rye. Hops aren't as evident in the taste but there is still some bitterness and a spicy finish due to the rye. Had I not just had a Founder's Red Rye before trying this, I might have given it higher marks.

    This is advertised as an IPA, but reminds me more of a lighter Dunkel. More malty than hoppy IMO. This still has some bitterness to it though. Bought in the variety pack which all 4 in there were decent. Has a lighter brown to medium orange color with a hint of red. I give it a 7 across the board. Better than average, but not much better.
