What's Up With Single Rye IPA?

A little about our SINGLE RYE IPA…

We brew each batch of SINGLE RYE IPA with a single hop variety where most IPAs use a blend. Each beer in this series features a different, unique hop which we change with every brew. To showcase the hop, we use a simple malt bill using only Belgian pilsner malt & spicy rye. SINGLE RYE IPA is available year round and highlights new & experimental hop varieties as well as some classics.

While we’re at it, here are some hop tasting notes that you can expect to pick up from each batch:

Batch 1 – Centennial:  Centennial is sometimes referred to as a Super Cascade, however it is lighter on the citrus aromas. The floral flavor and aroma of this variety is evident.

Batch 2- Columbus: Earthy, spicy, pungent, with some citrus overtones.  High on the bittering scale yet also valued for its oil content creates a hop that is an interesting dichotomy of sharp and herbal, surprisingly pleasant aroma.

Batch 3 – Simcoe: Aromas of passionfruit, apricot, Intense pine and woodsy aroma adds to the fresh, youthful vigor of this complex hop.

Batch 4 – El Dorado:  El Dorado hops consistently elicit responses of fruity notes, specifically tropical fruit flavors. Other fruit notes offered have been pear, watermelon candy and stone fruit. High potency of citrus, sometimes with an identification of a fresh cut grass taste.

Batch 5 – Citra: Very fruity! Citrus, peach, apricot, passion fruit, grapefruit, lime, melon, gooseberry, lychee fruit, pineapple, mango, papaya and other tropical fruit flavors and aromas. This hop is also featured in our HOP-O-MATIC IPA.

Batch 6 – Cascade:  Unmistakable grapefruit aroma and flavor, signature hop of many American ales. Unique floral/spicy character.

We’re very proud to educate our fans on the importance of singular hop profiles and how delicious they can be. If you have any additional questions, feel free to message us on our Facebook page. Request SINGLE RYE IPA at your favorite bar — we promise it’s worth the effort.
