“Bye Bye Miss American Rye. Drove my Chevy to the levy…”
We asked the folks at White Labs to swing by Basqueland with some fresh WLP001 California Ale yeast, and together, we brewed up this American Rye IPA. The outcome is a collaborative beer featuring a malt grist of Rye malts, giving it a spicy character together with Vienna and Carapils to round out the body. We used Comet and Citra hops on both the hot side and for dry-hopping. Anticipate a blend of bread and spice notes mingling with lively grapefruit, melon, and herbal accents, resulting in a clean, dry, and pleasantly bitter sip.
