Beer Review – Mohawk Rye IPA

A Rye Beer/IPA mash-up

A collaboration between Wicked Wine and Stefan Gustavsson 7.5% ABV. Systembolaget Article Number: 11736. 35.80 SEK (500ml bottle) A Rye Beer/IPA mash-up

Pours a crystal clear chestnut brown with a solid, sticky white head with tight beading.

Classic US hop aromas of pine needles and fresh garden mint. I was searching for the 'rye effect' but to be honest couldn't find anything obvious.

Creamy smooth mouth feel that smothers the high ABV nicely. Somewhat sticky sweet upfront and a medium hop buzz finish.

Spicy Asian food. Cheese and cheese-based dishes. Salmon.

Nerd note

So what does the 20% of rye do to this IPA? Most noticeable is the silky smooth mouth feel which seems to mute a lot of the hop bite and makes this a rather tame IPA. Overall a great looking beer with a fresh hoppy nose that is just a little too smooth and filling to leave me wanting much more.
