Bear Republic’s Hop Rod Rye Ale

bearrepublic_hoprodrye

I bought a bottle Hop Rod Rye a year ago from a local place that I did not expect to have beer like this on the shelf. My guess is that it sat there for a looooong time before I came along because it was horrible.

Luckily I believe in second chances and I picked up another bottle of Bear Republic’s Hop Rod Rye a few weeks ago from a more respectable shop. I must say that I am really glad that I gave this beer a second chance – it is awesome! It smells and tastes much like a very nicely hopped IPA, but the difference is that 17% of the malts are made up of rye. I think it is a nice little twist and definitely worth your time.

8.0 ABV, bottle conditioned
