Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye Beer Geek Stats
ABV: 8.0% IBU: 90+ OG 1.074 Color: Amber Red
The first American rye to be produced, Hop Rod Rye is a high performance, turbo charged, alcohol burnin' monster ale with dual overhead hop injection that revs out the hop-o-meter at over 90 IBUs. For all that, a good dose of rye and caramel malts ensures a sturdy chassis to carry all that flavor. The rye malt adds a spicy grain character that takes this beer to the winner's circle!
