Life On Tap Episode #211: 2xRye
In this previously recorded episode, Dan gets a recommendation for a Double Rye IPA from Southern Tier Brewing – 2xRye.

Southern Tier Brewing 2xRye

2xRye is a 8.1% Double Rye India Pale Ale brewed with three varieties of hops, five types of malts by Southern Tier as an autumn seasonal since 2013.


Brilliantly clear, orange/copper, reminiscent of a nice Canadian whiskey. The pour resulted with a moderately-small head with fairly tight bubbles.


Sweet aroma with a hint of rye bread as expected.


Very tasty and unique. Rye-forward with the other malts balanced with the hop bill, adding to the complexity and no detectable alcohol.


The rye and companion malts merge together for a textured and delightful mouthfeel with a medium body.


If you are looking for a balanced fall beer, this is one to seek out. While hop lovers might not flock to this beer, I believe it will please most people’s palates. Pair with moderate, seasonal dishes.
