What makes this beer different: Its like a spicy IPA
Will I be drinking this again: Yes
5/12/2010: Okay so time for some honestly. I never took the time to read what a “rye beer” technically is. To me they always just tasted like an IPA. Well turns out they are supposed to have IPA qualities, but with some spicy notes.
Red’s Rye smells a lot like a DIPA, a lot of malt and hops going on, somewhat sweet smelling. The taste is mostly sticky caramel malt, grapefruit hop flavor, and an “earthy” flavor I can’t quite put my finger one. It also does have a pepper (spicy) type of hint to it. This beer is thicker and has more malt than a typical IPA, but not quite a DIPA. Other Rye beers I have had were a bit dry, but this one is not. Overall a pretty solid beer.
