Born Brewing Co. (Born Colorado Brewing) IPA Series 008 Rye IPA – American IPA at 6.2% ABV | 58 IBU (C$4.18 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 13-Dec-2022, acquired 23-Dec-2021, reviewed 1-Jan-2022)

Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of fine ivory head, excellent retention and well-defined soapy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: spicy rye, resiny pine, caramel, citrus, black tea. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter, light peppery spice. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter lightly spicy finish. (4/5)

Hopped with Centennial and Citra, but the hopping doesn’t really dominate – but then again, neither does the spicy rye. It’s actually fairly well balanced in that regard, with a mild pleasant rye spice just barely edging out both the pine and citrus from hops, and a clean caramel malt. Pretty and pleasant. (15/20)

This will be my 5,172nd unique Untappd check-in.

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
