Rye Pale Ale (RPA) from Cameron’s Brewing (6.6%) is an American IPA brewed with rye (duh).
RPA pours an orange gold colour with lots of sediment and some airy bright white head. Big citrus hops on the nose cut through with malt and a sweet yeasty aroma. A medium bodied IPA that has resiny and citrus hop flavours, which are well-balanced by an equal dose of sweet and spicy malt (think that pungent bite from rye bread). Strong and warming, a slightly sticky mouthfeel with a dry bitter finish. This beer was very impressive managing to bring big hops to the front while retaining an accessibility that does not make RPA the exclusive domain of hop heads.
