https://smuttynose.com/beer/rhye-ipa/ In craft beer, there are almost as many bad rye puns as there are bad hop puns; Smuttynose is happy to spare you from more of either. Instead, we’ll tell you about our new Big Beer, Rhye IPA. We brewed it because we like drinking hoppy American-style beers and we wanted a chance to brew with rye. The rest, as they say, is history. The result is a 7% hoppy IPA, with rye spiciness and big hop character. This beer will really get under your armor… The image on the Rhye IPA label is a famous drawing of an Indian rhinoceros by 16th century German painter and printmaker, Albrecht Dürer. Dürer had never seen the creature before and created the drawing based on one description and a crudely scribbled sketch.

    22oz bomber pours with an opaque coppery to orange body that supports a nice looking light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up citrus, some lime, mango, lemon grass, a rye bread twang and a touch of peat. The taste is similar with grapefruit, tangelo and mango fruity hoppiness mixing with pine and a yeasty sort of faint peat note. It has a nice juicy hop fruity flavor sensation that quickly becomes overshadowed by firm hop bitterness to resiny hops as well as some mineral notes and a bit of biscuit like malts. Nice hoppy brew. It reminds me of some of the European IPA or IIPA I’ve had.

    Pours slightly hazy orange-amber with a thick ivory head. Aroma presents strong hoppy and rye tones. Flavor echoes the aroma, but kicks it up a notch and introduces a touch of grapefruit plus some dusty malt. Mouthfeel is typical, though it has a nice hoppy and rye finish. Save the Rhye-nos!

    A dull orange-amber colored beer with a big frothy textured beige head rising above. There's decent hang time on the head. It settles a well formed ringlet. Rye spiciness and citric hops dominate with some more pine thrown in. Refreshing
