Citrusy hops can make an IPA but a little spice is always nice

Our head brewer, Paul, developed this recipe earlier in his career. And it's been a taproom favorite for years, so we knew it was the final beer in our High Hopped series. It's a copper-reddish color is followed with zesty rye malt flavor and topped off with huge hop flavors from the crowd favorites, Citra and Mosaic. All those big citrus and tropical notes wrap up with a crisp finish.


Paul reached way back to some of his favorite home brew recipes to whip this tasty IPA together. Rye IPA being one of his favorite styles, it didn't take him much to get excited about brewing it.


Deep golden to slightly reddish hues. Expect some haze from the rye malt.


An almost overwhelming citrus bouquet with subtle notes of melon and pear.


Initial taste will bring massive hop flavor and a well rounded bitterness. Good hop and malt flavors throughout the mid-palate. Finishes dry and spicy with minimal sweetness.
