From Cannery Brewing Company out of Penticton BC comes their new “Rye-Nheitsge-Bot” Rye IPA. This beer can currently be found in their Cannery Collection and in 6 packs only in the tasting room. The name is a play on the Reinheitsgebot also known as the German Beer Purity Law. The beer pours a deep copper or golden brown with a tan head. The aroma consist of rye, earthy hops, pine and a hint of citrus (I have a cold so I may be off on the nose). The flavour is of big rye malts, caramel, earth, pine and some citrus and a pretty good bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 70. I think the rye might be masking some of the bitterness on this one. I enjoy rye beer and this one is no exception. This is a very well crafted rye IPA with a ton of flavour.
