Barrelhouse Brewing Co. Rye IPA (6.5%)

Rye IPAI won’t be pedantic and say that you can’t be “incredibly unique,” something is either unique or not unique.
Uniqueness can’t be quantified.
The aren’t levels of uniqueness.
But I won’t.
Instead I’ll just tell you that this is a superb Rye IPA brewed with Sorachi Ace, Centannial and Chinook hops that make this beer big and bold and fruity.
Pouring a warm gold with a fluffy head, the smell is lychee and lemonade and the hops hit you as soon as you take a swig.
You find nectarines and apricots, green herbal leaves and lots of piquant lemongrass from the hops, and underneath this the malts are round and chewy and soft.
They’re sweet with toffee and crunchy with wholemeal bread crusts, the rye adding a deep warm and earthy spiciness that adds an extra depth to the sticky bitter finish.
